Prince William and Kate Middleton’s three children—Prince George, (8), Princess Charlotte (6) and Prince Louis (3)—are still very young. However, the couple’s oldest child, George, is approaching a royal family milestone that could change everything.
Since Prince George turned 8, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge have been considering whether to send him to boarding school or let him stay at Thomas’s Battersea. (The young royal first attended the London facility back in 2017 and flew solo for two years before Princess Charlotte was enrolled in 2019.)
According to OK! magazine, it’s tradition for male members of the family to become full-time boarders at age 8. Both Prince William and Prince Harry were boarders at Ludgrove School, a prep school for boys aged 8 to 13. And even though George turned 8 on July 22, the family wants to wait until he’s a bit older to revisit the topic.
In fact, back in July, a source told Us Weekly the Cambridges would only send George to boarding school if wanted to go to one.
