Prince George starts school later this year, and you’d be forgiven for presuming that his school run will be done by a nanny every day. But in fact, you couldn’t be more wrong.
When Kate Middleton told parents ‘I may see you at the school gates’ she was deadly serious – she and Prince William will be picking Prince George up from school every day unless their work schedules permit them from doing so.
‘They are very hands on parents and although they acknowledge that it might cause a bit of a buzz to start with, they are hopeful it will soon settle down’ a source told the Daily Mail.
‘It’s very important to both of them that George enjoys as normal a childhood as possible, particularly as he settles into a new school, and for them this includes dropping him off at the school gates.’
George, who turns four in July, will attend Thomas’s London Day School in Battersea from September.
While his parents could have opted for Thomas’s in Kensington, just a stone’s throw from home, they reportedly chose the Battersea location as it had more of a ‘village’ feel, which they preferred.
We applaud Prince William and Kate Middleton for their down-to-earth attitude to parenting.
Maybe Granny will pick him up one day, too?
