  • The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are set to look at things differently when it comes to deciding whether to send their children to boarding school.

    Traditionally, Royal children have been enrolled into boarding school when they reach a certain age and although “shy” Prince George is aged six, thoughts will soon be turning to whether he should be sent to such a school.

    Ingrid Seward, editor of Majesty magazine, has revealed how Prince William and Kate are “very carefully” weighing up decisions about the future of their children’s education.

    The source said, “I think they’ll wait to see how the children’s personalities develop, and take into consideration whether or not they would be happy to live away from home.

    “Having experienced terrible trauma in his own childhood, William is very tuned in to his children’s mental health.”

    She pointed out that the parents might be particularly aware of the children’s different personalities.

    So while it might not be the right decision for one, it could be the perfect choice for another.
