Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis' New School Revealed

Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis have been welcomed by the headmaster of their new school who says the staff is "delighted."

Prince William and Kate Middleton's three children are starting at Lambrook School, in Berkshire, in September, Kensington Palace announced. The news follows reports that the couple is preparing to move out of London to Adelaide Cottage, near Windsor Castle.

The move would bring the Cambridge family closer to Queen Elizabeth II, who has been undertaking fewer royal duties after experiencing mobility problems.

Jonathan Perry, the headmaster at Lambrook School, said: "We are delighted that Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis will be joining us this coming September and very much look forward to welcoming the family, as well as all of our new pupils, to our school community."

Lambrook, which is around eight miles from Windsor, charges prep school pupils £19,344 per term (around $23,000), or up to £57,759 (around $68,000) for boarding school pupils.

George and Charlotte previously went to Thomas's Battersea, which was viewed as a more nurturing environment than more traditional royal private schools. Kensington Palace said it gave them a "happy start to their education" and that Lambrook would have "a similar ethos and values."

A Kensington Palace press release announced: "The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge have today announced that Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis will attend Lambrook School in Berkshire from September 2022.

"Their Royal Highnesses are hugely grateful to Thomas's Battersea where George and Charlotte have had a happy start to their education since 2017 and 2019 respectively and are pleased to have found a school for all three of their children which shares a similar ethos and values to Thomas's."

Ben Thomas, principal of Thomas's London Day Schools, said: "We would like to thank George, Charlotte and all of our leaving pupils for upholding the school's values and for their many contributions to school life throughout their time at Thomas's. We wish them every happiness and success at their next schools and beyond."

The school has catered to royalty before, including two of Queen Victoria's grandsons, Prince Victor and Prince Albert of Schleswig-Holstein.

Queen Elizabeth II also used to go to the school to watch cricket, according to Bosie, a biography of Lord Alfred Douglas, by Douglas Murray.

The author wrote: "While the family were settled in London, Alfred and his eldest brother Francis were sent to Lambrook, a prep school near Windsor. It was not especially eminent, but the children there were all of the aristocracy or royalty—including two of Queen Victoria's grandsons, Prince Victor and Prince Albert of Schleswig-Holstein.

"The Queen herself often went to the school from the castle to watch the cricket. Its geographical situation meant that it was a natural feeder for Eton—clearly the path considered at some time for young Alfred."
