Princess Charlotte is all set to start school later this year, as per the announcement made by Kensington Palace earlier this week.


The four-year-old princess will be joining Thomas’s Battersea, the same school her elder brother, Prince George, six, joined back in 2017.

Following the announcement, the Headmaster of the school, Simon O’Malley, has stated his delight at welcoming the second royal child into the institution, located at South-West London.


O’Malley said, “We are delighted that The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge have decided that Princess Charlotte will join her elder brother, Prince George, at Thomas’s Battersea. We greatly look forward to welcoming her and all of our new pupils to the school in September.”


Previously, Charlotte attended Willcocks Nursery based in Kensington, whereas George has been going to Thomas’s Battersea for the past two years.

According to Daily Mail, the fees for Prince George at the Thomas’s Battersea amounts to around $7,198 for a term and around $21,594 for a year. Similarly, for Charlotte, it is around $7059 for a term and around $21,177 for a year.


The source also reported that Prince William and Kate Middleton chose the school two years ago Prince George because they found it to be the “right fit” for the young royal.

Thomas’s Battersea is an institution that boasts about its ‘excellent academic results’ and an environment described as ‘happy, dynamic, and vibrant.’ It was established 40 years ago by David and Joanna Thomas.


For Prince George, this milestone moment came back in September 2017, when Prince William dropped him off at the school for the first time. At the time, the Cambridge had only recently announced that they were expecting their child.

Dressed in navy shorts and jacket along with long red socks and tidy, black shoes, George looked delighted to start his new journey.

Last year, it was reported that Prince George is also accompanied by a distant relative in his class at the same school.
