For his very first school year, Prince Louis will not join George and Charlotte at Thomas’s Battersea in London. All are preparing to integrate a new establishment in Berkshire.
No more private school in London, place in boarding school in Berkshire. Installed at Kensington Palace since 2017, Prince William and Kate Middleton have decided to leave London to settle in the countryside, near Windsor, at the Adelaide cottage. In September, Prince George (9 years old), Princess Charlotte (7 years old) and Prince Louis (4 years old) will therefore return to a new school. According to information from theTelegram the Cambridges would have chosen Lambrook School, an independent, Christian preparatory school in Berkshire, located a quarter of an hour’s drive from their future home.
Founded in 1860, the Lambrook School accommodates 620 schoolchildren on a large area of 21 hectares. “We have raised boys and girls aged 3-13, giving them ‘feathers to fly’, ensuring they enter high school as confident, outgoing, intelligent and creative youngsters,” announces its website. “We are proud of our high academic standards, our excellent infrastructure and our sports offer. Our weekly and flexible boarding school is fun and friendly, with a real family atmosphere.”
If George, Charlotte and Louis do indeed integrate this establishment, they will be able to follow courses in English, mathematics, French, sciences, Latin, Greek, history, geography, ICT (technologies of the information and communication), art, design and technology. Drama, music, physical education and swimming lessons are also offered. It takes at least that to form princes and princesses. Moreover, the Lambrook School prides itself on having an excellent success rate and seeing its students integrate prestigious secondary schools thereafter.
A big budget to plan
For their children to put on the checkered uniform, Prince William and Kate Middleton will have to pay a hell of a lot: 4,389 pounds sterling per term (5,248 euros) for Prince Louis, who will be making his very first return to school this year in ” pre preparatory”, then 6448 pounds (7710 euros) per quarter for Princess Charlotte and 6999 pounds (8369 euros) per quarter for Prince George. More costs are to be expected if the children enter the boarding school. A scenario that seems unlikely since the Cambridges will live a few kilometers away.

Until then, Prince George and his sister Princess Charlotte were educated at Thomas’s School in Battersea, a private school in south-west London. For his part, the turbulent Prince Louis was at Willcocks daycare. In addition to changing schools, the children will therefore change homes and take up residence at Adelaide Cottage, a historic residence located not far from Windsor Castle. Prince William and Kate Middleton will thus get closer to Queen Elizabeth II, but also to the Middleton family, who have been living in Berkshire for many years. However, the Cambridges intend to keep their royal offices at Kensington Palace and their beloved country home of Anmer Hall in Norfolk.
