Ever since Prince Louis of Cambridge turned 2 in April, many fans of the British royal family have been wondering how Prince William and Kate Middleton were going to proceed with the education of their youngest son.
If Prince Louis was going to have the same schedule as his older siblings, Prince George and Princess Charlotte, he is most likely to start attending pre-school in January next year instead of starting in the fall, like most kids.
For instance, back in January 2016, Prince George began attending the Westacre Montessori School in Norfolk, which lies in close proximity to Anmer Hall, the vacation retreat of the Cambridges.
Two years later, also in January, Princess Charlotte started with Willcocks Nursery School, which is a short distance away from Kensington Palace. Back then, it was reported that the royal couple decided Willcocks would be the best place for their daughter because “they thought it would be an ideal first step for Charlotte’s education, and they were impressed by the team who work there.”
Many royal experts are currently convinced that Prince Louise will also be enrolled at Willcocks mainly because his brother and sister were studying at Thomas’s Battersea, which is in the vicinity. Thomas’s Battersea is a $23,000-a-year private school.
Last year in September, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge made headlines, as they were seen arriving with their oldest children for the beginning of the school year at the prestigious school.
However, with the ongoing pandemic crisis, William and Catherine had to homeschool their children just like parents all over the world.
William said “it was fun,” while the Duchess of Cambridge described the experience as challenging, especially when George preferred to do his sister’s homework instead of his.
Kate shared: “We’re stuck into homeschooling again. George gets very upset because he just wants to do all of Charlotte’s projects. Spider sandwiches are far cooler than literacy work!”
The mother of three added: “The children have got such stamina; I don’t know how, honestly. You get to the end of the day, you write down all the list of the things you’ve done in that day, you sort of pitch a tent, take the tent down again, cook, bake, you get to the end of the day, they’ve had a lovely time, but it is amazing how much you can cram into one day, that’s for sure.”
The pandemic has changed a lot of things around education.
