William and Kate will accompany Prince George on first day of school

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge will accompany their eldest son, Prince George, 4, on his return to kindergarten.

For little George’s return to classes, the royal couple decided to do away with the drivers and staff made available and take him to school themselves.

“The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, accompanying Prince George, will be met on arrival at the school by the Head of Lower School, Helen Haslem, who will then escort Their Royal Highnesses to Prince George’s reception classroom,” a statement from Kensington Palace announced. [via People]



Thus on September 7 the royal pair will be at Thomas Elementary School, in the Battersea district of London, for the beginning of the school year.

Like Diana before them, Kate and William are keen to offer their children a “normal” education. They have thus overruled the royal protocol which requires children to study through homeschooling, and opted for a “regular” school instead.
