Princess Charlotte will join Prince George at Thomas’s Battersea school.
Kensington Palace has confirmed that Princess Charlotte will attend the independent primary school from this September.
And now an official statement has been released confirming the news, which read: ‘Princess Charlotte will join Prince George at Thomas’s Battersea from September 2019 this year.’
Simon O’Malley, Headmaster at Thomas’s Battersea, also released an official statement, saying: ‘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.’
The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge reportedly chose the school in the first place as it a mixed school, meaning that all of their children could attend.
‘The plan was always for Charlotte to follow George to Thomas’s so Louis will probably also be going,’ a royal family source told Vanity Fair. ‘William and Kate are very happy.’
It is also thought that the primary school is looking to expand into a secondary over the next few years, so the Cambridge family may even end up having a very long connection with the institution.
‘They are so happy with the school,’ added the source. ‘I don’t see why they wouldn’t consider keeping the children there if the plans for the secondary school go ahead.
‘They are part of the school community, they get on well with the head and they have been thrilled with how much George has come on since he started.’
We just can’t wait to see the pair in their matching school uniforms!
