    The Cambridges are one of the most talked-about families in the world, and from their relocation to Kensington Palace and secret puppy to their multiple public appearances, they never fail to make headlines.

    Recently however it was their children that got the world talking as it emerged that Prince William and Kate Middleton are stuck on whether Prince George should board or not. And their thought process reportedly involves Prince William’s childhood trauma.

    It appears to be tradition for royal children to attend boarding school, but this is reportedly a decision that Kate and Wills aren’t taking lightly.

    ‘Kate and William are modern parents and will weigh up the decision very carefully,’ Royal expert Ingrid Seward told OK! magazine. ‘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.’

    She continued: ‘Having experienced terrible trauma in his own childhood, William is very tuned in to his children’s mental health.’

    Another source recently weighed in on the subject, telling Us Weekly: ‘George going to school is a decision the Cambridges will make as a family. They’d never force George to go unless he wants to and they feel it’s right.’

    We’re sure the Duke and Duchess will come to the right decision.
