Months of home schooling are finally over for the Cambridge family, and Prince George and Princess Charlotte are back in the classroom.
Their dad Prince William admitted he’s glad his job as temporary teacher is over, saying “I think every parent is breathing a sigh of relief that school has started again” at a recent engagement.
Kate and Wills are regulars on the school run at Thomas’s Battersea, where their two oldest kids attend, and while you might expect their appearances to cause excitement on the playground, other parents have said that’s not the case.
Apparently parents barely give them a second glance when they drop George and Charlotte off – and there is another mum who people are much more excited to catch a glimpse of.
One parent told the Daily Mail : “No one really gives Kate a second glance when she does the school drop-off.
“We have a Victoria’s Secret model doing the school run, too, and the dads are far more interested in her.”
George has just started Year 3 at the £18,915-a-year private school, and Charlotte is in Year 1.
The little prince is in Year 1 and according to the other parents he’s just like one of the other kids – and he even has a nickname, PG.
One told Vanity Fair : “He’s very popular and has lots of friends, and there’s very little fuss made about who he is.”
Thomas’s Battersea offers a varied curriculum, with lessons in ballet and French running alongside the more traditional subjects.
The website states: “Our ambition is to develop in each pupil an enquiring mind and a life-long love of learning.

“Through enthusiastic, inspiring teaching, excellent resources, and a broad and balanced curriculum, pupils are well prepared not merely for the demands of senior school entrance examinations, but also for a rich and fulfilling future.
“The National Curriculum is our starting point, but in each subject work is planned to stimulate and challenge. We have high expectations of our pupils and track progress carefully so that the standard and pace of the work suits the individual and ensures that all fulfil their potential.”
