Prince George will help Princess Charlotte at new school – ‘Very protective’ | Royal | News

Prince George is fully taking on his role of older brother as four-year-old Charlotte is preparing to join him at his prestigious school, royal biographer Penny Junor said. She told Hello! magazine: “Prince George is a very protective and lovely older brother. I’m sure he’ll look after his little sister and take great pride in showing her the ropes.” 

The six-year-old son of Kate, Duchess of Cambridge, and Prince William is to start his third year at the £6,000-a-term institute.

On the other hand, Princess Charlotte will begin her reception year within just days.

The little princess has previously attended Willcocks Nursery in Kensington since last January.

Joining a new school may be quite intimidating for most children, but Princess Charlotte has proven to be quite outspoken and cheeky in the past few weeks, and is said to be “very excited” about her new school. 

Speaking to Vanity Fair, a royal source said: “Charlotte has got a real character, she is very excited about starting school.”

Princess Charlotte was spotted sticking out her tongue to a crowd in Cowes gathered for a charity regatta organised by her parents.

And, on numerous occasions, Charlotte has demonstrated to be at ease with others, waving at crowds and even speaking to photographers gathered to take snaps of guests at Prince Louis’s christening.

Kensington Palace confirmed in May William and Kate had decided to enrol Charlotte at the same school attended by Prince George.

The little Cambridge was welcomed by the school’s headmaster, Simon O’Malley.

He said: We are delighted that the Duke & 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 £19,287-a-year school has an enrolment of 540 girls and boys – aged between four to 13 – and boasts a wide curriculum and after-school activities, including outdoor learning, music, drama and dance.

The latter subject will be taken on by Prince George this year, as his curriculum will involve weekly ballet practice.

News of George’s ballet classes sparked hilarity during a Good Morning America’s segment last week.

TV presenter Lara Spencer poked fun at the young royal as pictures of Prince George were appearing on screen.  

As snaps of smiling George were shown, Ms Spencer said: “Oh he looks so happy about the ballet class.”

Her reaction to Prince George’s new curriculum sparked anger online, with many members of the public and leading personalities in the dancing world coming together to support the royal.

Renowned American dancer and choreographer Brian Friedman wrote on Instagram: “See this cute face, the future King of England? This adorable boy is being shamed by a grown woman on National Television in America for taking ballet! 

“@lara.spencer you should be ashamed of yourself as well as @gstephanopoulos for laughing along & @goodmorningamerica for letting public shaming of young boys happen!

“Growing up as a dancer I was bullied horribly which is exactly what this is. She is teaching the word that it is ok to laugh at boys for dancing and that is so sad.

“Just think about the young boys who may have seen this and could quit their passion at her expense.”

Ms Spencer later apologised for her reaction on Instagram, branding her words an “insensitive comment”.
