Reception children will be able to return to school from 1st of June
Like many children in lockdown, Prince George, six, and Princess Charlotte, five have been homeschooled by their parents, Prince William and Kate Middleton. The Cambridges’ two oldest children are in Year 2 and reception respectively at Thomas’s Battersea.
‘We’re stuck into homeschooling again,’ Kate said of the experience a recent the video chat. ‘George gets very upset because he just wants to do all of Charlotte’s projects. Spider sandwiches are far cooler than literacy work!’
So, when are the Cambridge children likely to return to school?
Thomas’s Battersea is apparently following government guidelines to reopen for reception and Years 1 & 6 at the start of June, The Sunday Times reports.
While previously thought that Princess Charlotte would be the first royal allowed out of lockdown, it has been reported that she may not be returning to school in June when St Thomas’s reopens.
According to the The Sunday Times, Prince William and Kate Middleton are contemplating not sending Charlotte back to school, keeping their three children all together.
This is so that they can continue the routine they’ve established in lockdown – we assume until things are a bit more normal than they are currently.
