In this time of social distancing, schools across the world are turning to remote teaching for their children as an option, and that includes Prince George and Princess Charlotte’s.
According to People, the children will be continuing their lessons from home using online sources for the next week.
“Due to the increasing numbers of children and staff being absent from school due to the Coronavirus situation, Thomas’s London Day Schools have decided to move to remote learning from Friday 20 March,” a spokesperson for Thomas’s London Day Schools said in a statement. “From this date the curriculum will be taught through online learning platforms and we have asked parents to keep their children at home and to access their lessons through this system. This will ensure that children have continuity of learning when they are unable to attend school.”
However, the institution itself will still remain open, for those who need it.
“In cases where families are not in a position to keep their children at home (such as those who are ‘front line staff’ in the medical profession, for example), the school will remain physically open until the last day of term, Thursday, 26 March,” the statement continued. “We appreciate the support of our school community as we continue to provide the best possible solution for our pupils during these challenging times.”
Charlotte joined her big brother George at the $23,000-per-year Thomas's Battersea Day School this past September, and although she has only been there for a semester, she apparently already has a nickname.
According to Vanity Fair royal reporter Katie Nicholls, Charlotte was a fiery and "feisty" little pupil at Willcocks Nursery School, so much so that she was called the "Warrior Princess" by teachers and students.
But, while she’s at home, we’re sure she’ll just be "Lottie."
