From just how much it costs to its famous former pupils, find out everything there is to know about the little royal's first school: Thomas's in Battersea.
Pippa Middleton has started preparations for her wedding to James Matthews next month. The 33-year-old flew her sister – the Duchess of Cambridge – and friends to a secret hen do at a French ski resort. Meanwhile, Prince William was spotted worse for wear in a club in Verbier, Switzerland.
The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and Prince Harry have released a series of hard-hitting films as part of their mental health campaign, Heads Together. Hoping to open up the conversation surrounding mental health, the ten videos feature both famous and non-famous people talking to the person they first opened up to. Issues including depression, anorexia and post-traumatic stress disorder are all mentioned.
Last week, the Palace revealed that Prince George will be starting at Thomas’s school in Battersea in September. The news came as a surprise as many believed the little prince would follow in his father’s footsteps and attend Wetherby Pre-preparatory in Notting Hill. For daily school life, George will require a navy jacket, polo neck and shorts.
It only seems like yesterday that the Duchess of Cambridge was leaving hospital with a baby Prince George in her arms, but his royal cuteness is all set to start school in September and it’s just been announced which school he’ll be attending. The three-year-old is set to be enrolled at the Private Thomas’s School in Battersea, South London. Something that should suit the lively Prince perfectly.
It’s a big year for Kate Middleton and Prince William: The royal couple are moving their family to Kensington Palace, scouting out preschools, and taking a whirlwind family vacation. On Friday, Kensington Palace tweeted the news that Will and Kate are set to tour Germany and Poland in July (past royal tours have included the United States, Canada, India, Australia, and New Zealand).
It’s hard to forget that navy blue dress we first saw on the soon-to-be Duchess of Cambridge back in 2010. Kate Middleton and Prince William had announced their engagement, and while plenty had all of our thoughts directed on (of course) the ring, a certain $535 (£430) dress was garnering most of our attention. Thus Issa quickly became an iconic label.
Princess Diana once wore a gown made of silk velvet, and the tiny handprints of two young princes may have been preserved in the dress for the last 30 years.
Kensington Palace have announced that the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge will be making a short visit to Paris next month. The news comes at an apt time as it is almost 20 years since William’s mother, Princess Diana, died in a tragic car accident in the French capital. Although the Prince has been to Paris for non-official visits, this will be his first official mini-tour since his mother’s death in August 1997.
The Duchess of Cambridge’s attendance at the BAFTAs may have been up in the air but her appearance was well worth the wait. The royal couple were the last to arrive at this year’s star-studded awards, opting for an intricate black gown by one of her favourite designers, Alexander McQueen.
Kate and William showed their competitive sides over the weekend at a training session for the London Marathon. The charity is the main organisation for this year’s marathon and hopes to tackle the stigma surrounding mental health.
The BAFTAs are one of Britain’s most prestigious events with Hollywood stars taking to the red carpet in the hope of winning a much-coveted award. According to reports by The Sun, the Duchess of Cambridge may not be welcome as she could be a distraction from the other A-list guests. Prince William, who is the president of the film academy, is planning to attend for the first time in two years but has reportedly been told that Kate could cause a problem.
Since 2014, Apartment 1A at Kensington Palace has been the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge’s official residence. An official statement today reveals that Kate and William will be making a move to London to spend more time working on the charities they support and undertaking official work on behalf of the Queen.
Have Kate and William had a change of heart about Prince George’s school? Earlier this week marked the deadline for parents to submit their preferences for primary school places for their children. The three-year-old royal was expected to be enrolled at £6,865-a-term Wetherby School in Notting Hill, but it has been suggested that the youngster may in fact attend the school’s new branch in Kensington, when he starts reception in September.
For Town & Country's February 2016 issue, Prince Harry showed off his smouldering gaze on the magazine's cover — and for a good cause, too. Between Princess Diana, the Duchess of Cambridge, Queen Rania of Jordan and even Prince William, click through the gallery to see some of our favourite royal cover stars.
The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge have had a very busy 2016. They’ve enjoyed royal tours to India and Canada, made history with magazine covers and attended lots of celebrations for the Queen’s 90th Birthday. Their children Prince George and Princess Charlotte have also hit many milestones. Princess Charlotte turned one, whilst Prince George appeared on his first stamp, started nursery school and stole the limelight more times than we can count.
