Two of Prince William and Duchess Kate's three children are now in school! Their daughter, Princess Charlotte, 4, is now attending Thomas's Battersea with her older brother, Prince George, 6, where he was given the last name of Cambridge, which is a little bit easier to remember than Mountbatten-Windsor.
Princess Charlotte is also expected to be called Charlotte Cambridge — or possibly even by her sweet nickname Lottie — while at school. Their father, Prince William, and his brother, Prince Harry, were similarly called William and Harry Wales when they were at school. Could this mean that when Meghan and Harry's little boy reaches school age, he'll be called Archie Sussex?!
With that out of the way, what does a royally appropriate curriculum look like anyway? Well, when researching their posh school online, it's explained Thomas's Battersea boasts over 500 students from ages 4 to 13; and their parents pay around $26,000 per year for tuition. Town and Country noted that the school has a rather intimidating-looking curriculum that includes PSHCE (Personal, Social, Health, and Economic Education), French, history, geography, and science. But don't worry, Princess Charlotte won't be tested on all that on the first day or anything.
"We are going to try and make this a really happy, safe and secure time," Headmaster Ben Thomas told reporters in 2017, when Prince George had his first day at the school. "The whole aim of these precious years of early education is to give children that confidence in who they really are. We are not going to try and mold him into any kind of particular person.
"The global spotlight has been a little bit daunting," he admitted, "but that will move on and we are looking forward to a time when he is just another Thomas's pupil."
