The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge have enrolled Prince George at Thomas's School in Battersea, which he will start attending from September. The young Prince, who will be four years old when the term commences, will be a part of a famous alumni as former pupils of Thomas's include singer Florence Welch and model Cara Delevingne as well as older sisters Poppy and Chloe Delevingne. Last week, Kensington Palace made the announcement in a statement, which read: "Their Royal Highnesses are delighted to have found a school where they are confident George will have a happy and successful start to his education." The £6,110-a-term private school is for both boys and girls between the ages of four and 13. The institution has a strong focus on the arts, sports and outdoor activities in addition t
April 16, 2014, was a red-letter day for Princess Désirée von Hohenlohe, the Brussels-based founder of boutique children’s wear line Les Petites Abeilles. That morning, after having spent the past six months caring for her newborn, Felicity, Von Hohenlohe decided it was high time to catch up on the news, so she clicked to the BBC, where the most-watched video was one showing the Cambridge family’s arrival in Australia. To her great surprise, Prince George was wearing a smocked sailboat romper of Von Hohenlohe’s design, sent as a gift at the suggestion of a friend. “It was a series of funny coincidences,” says Von Hohenlohe. “I didn’t know that the Duchess of Cambridge loves sailing, and of course sailing was very appropriate for New Zealand.” [The little prince wore the outfit twice.] And
Prince George has a new preschool! Prince William and Kate Middleton, parents to Prince George, 3, and Princess Charlotte, 22 months, announced the news Friday via Kensington Palace’s Twitter account: “The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge have announced that Prince George will attend Thomas’s Battersea School in London from September 2017.” The little prince, who turns 4 on July 22, will attend the private school, which has 540 students between the ages of 4 and 13, costs $22,000 per year, and boasts the motto “Be kind.” Model Cara Delevingne and singer Florence Welch are reportedly former students. According to a story published by ABC News, principal Ben Thomas previously penned a letter to parents explaining Prince George’s arrival. “The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge have decided on P
While some things change, others stay the same. When Prince William went to his first day of nursery school, more than 100 reporters stood at the schoolhouse gates to watch Princess Diana and Prince Charles drop off their older son at Mrs. Mynors' Nursery School. It was the first time a member of the royal family had attended nursery school outside of Buckingham Palace, and it certainly was quite the sight. The royal couple chose to send their son to a Montessori school, a method that balances work and play and encourages children to develop at their own rate. The method might have stuck with Wills, as he and wife Kate Middleton opted to send their son, Prince George, to Westacre Montessori School for nursery. Of course, Prince George's first day differed drastically from that of his...
Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's royal getaway left Prince George tongue-tied PRINCE Harry’s latest love has found a new fan – his nephew Prince George. We can reveal US actress Meghan Markle met the three-year-old and his baby sister Charlotte last week at their family home in Norfolk. And George – son of Harry’s brother Prince William and his wife Kate – was so taken with his uncle’s new squeeze, he was said to be unusually tongue-tied during the visit. A royal insider told the Daily Star Sunday: “Harry took Meghan up to Anmer Hall on a secret mission to meet more of the VIPs in his life – George and Charlotte. “They all had tea and biscuits, and took a walk in the grounds with the dogs. “George is usually an absolute chatterbox but he was totally tongue-tied when he first met Meg
What does Prince George want to be when he grows up? Quite possibly a chef, according to mom Kate Middleton. The Duchess of Cambridge stopped by the Ronald McDonald House in London today, where she revealed that her 3-year-old son—who is third in line to the British throne—is currently very into cooking. During her visit, a 4-year-old named James Wheeler asked her, "Where’s George today?" Middleton was quick to reply, and said: "George? I should have brought him. He’s at his Montessori nursery today making pancakes." The activity is fitting, considering that today is Pancake Day (or Shrove Tuesday) in the United Kingdom, the traditional feast that happens the day before the start of Lent on Ash Wednesday. But what else is the young royal into these days? Inclement weather. The sam
Prince George makes PANCAKES at nursery as Duchess of Cambridge visits sick children PRINCE George was busy making pancakes today while his mother th e Duchess of Cambridge visited sick children and their families. Kate, wearing a new Rebecca Taylor blue suit, met young patients when she opened a new £13 million "home away from home" for families whose children are being treated at the Evelina Hospital in London. She met James Wheeler, 4, whose baby brother Lewis was in intensive care having been born six weeks ago at just 23 weeks. In the kitchen of the Ronald McDonald Evelina House, James asked her: "Where's George today?" Kate laughed and replied: "George? I should have brought him. He's at his Montessori nursery today making pancakes" George? I should have brought him. He'
When the Queen posed for official portraits with Prince George and Princess Charlotte, the Duchess of Cambridge couldn't let the opportunity slip by to take some personal photos of her own. The Duchess took her children to Windsor Castle on Easter Monday, where they posed with Her Majesty for the royal's 90th birthday. The official photographer at the shoot was Annie Leibovitz, whose famous subjects include Kate Moss, Johnny Depp, Lady Gaga and the Kardashian-Wests. But Kate, who is a keen shutterbug, captured her own personal snaps for the family album. "Wills and Kate were with the children but as adoring parents rather than wanting to be in the pics themselves," a royal source told The Sun. "Annie was taking the official pictures but Kate took her own snaps for the family album. I...
Things we know to be true: Prince George is one adorable toddler—these sweet photos and cute stories are proof of that. Heck, even the life-size cake version of Prince William and Kate Middleton's Prince George melts our heart. So, based on how much we're obsessed with this "little monkey" (as his father calls him) in his first 24-plus months of life—and how genetically blessed his parents are—it's safe to assume the following will also be true: Prince George will make one very handsome adult. Now, thanks to a group of scientists from the University of Bradford, we don't have to wait decades to see how that last statement pans out. In one of the weirder uses of technology, professors from the university's visual computing department created an algorithm to predict what Prince George
