Only last month, the Duchess of Cambridge told a fellow parent that she would "see them at the school gate," and it appears that Kate is keen to keep her word. The Duchess will take it in turns with her husband Prince William to do the school run when their son Prince George starts at Thomas's Battersea in September. The couple will continue to be hands-on parents, with the intention of dropping off and picking up George from school every day. The south-west London school is about a half-hour drive away from Kensington Palace. William, 34, and Kate, 35, could have chosen the Kensington sister branch of Thomas's but they are believed to have been drawn to the "village" feel Battersea provides. Like fellow parents, they will face the London rush hour and not make use of a police escort, w...

Kate Middleton has said she’s not sure Prince George “has any idea what’s going to hit him” when he starts his new London preschool in September. Maybe the Duchess of Cambridge doesn’t know what’s going to hit her when she becomes a parent joining in the drop-off/pick-up ritual at her young son’s school. If she watched HBO’s “Big Little Lies,” which had its series finale Sunday night, she would have seen how these daily rituals, especially among the elite classes, can become occasions for gossiping and backstabbing among mothers who have turned parenting into an extreme competitive sport. And with talk about the creators of “Big Little Lies” wanting to produce a second season of the hit series, maybe they can shift the action away from Monterey and from the characters played b

From the moment they welcomed their first son Prince George into the world, Prince William and Kate made it clear that they would be modern, hands-on parents. The couple have carved their own paths as 21st century royals, while also bearing in mind the importance of royal tradition. William and Kate have taken decisions that suit both them and their young children, but also William's grandmother the Queen. When it comes to parenting, they have done things their way, but have been mindful to keep within the boundaries of royal expectation. The first sign that Prince George and Princess Charlotte's upbringing would be slightly different to their dad William's was at their birth. In keeping with tradition, Kate chose to follow in other royal mums' footsteps by having her children at the ex...

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
The duke and duchess are known for their offbeat ruling style (skipping family holidays, posing for selfies with fans), so it’s not surprising they didn’t choose the Wetherby School near Kensington Palace, which William and Harry attended.

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...
