Princess Charlotte may stay at home when her classes restart next month because George’s year won’t be back and Prince William and Kate Middleton want them to stay together for lockdown routine

  • Charlotte is in reception at Thomas’s school, Battersea, while George is in year 2
  • Under government guidelines reception, year 1 and year 6 classes are to reopen
  • The couple previously said it had been ‘challenging’ to teach their three children
  • Here’s how to help people impacted by Covid-19

William and Kate might opt out of sending Princess Charlotte, five, back to school in June so they can keep up her coronavirus lockdown routine with brother Prince George, six, at home. 

Charlotte is in reception at Thomas’s school in Battersea, London, while George is in year 2. 

Under government guidelines – which the elite day school is expected to follow – reception, year 1 and year 6 classes are to reopen from June 1.

A final decision on whether the school will reopen will be announced this week, The Sunday Times reported.

The couple previously said it had been ‘challenging’ to teach their three children – who they said had ‘got such stamina’.

Speaking in an interview with BBC Breakfast in April, Kate said of home schooling: ‘Don’t tell the children, we’ve actually kept it going through the holidays. I feel very mean. 

‘The children have got such stamina, I don’t know how. Honestly, you get to the end of the day and you write down the list of all the things that you’ve done in that day.’

She added: ‘It’s just having that bit of structure actually. And it’s great, there’s so many great tips online and fun activities that you can do with the children, so it hasn’t been all hardcore.’

Earlier this month, Kate joked that Prince George was ‘jealous’ of his five-year-old sister’s homework and ‘would rather make spider sandwiches’.

The government’s decision to send children back to school has been met with criticism from trade unions, ministers and local authorities over whether is is safe to do so. 

Hartlepool in County Durham and Liverpool said they would ignore the Government’s plan to let some primary school pupils back to the school from June 1. 

Concerns have been echoed by The British Medical Association who warned the number of coronavirus cases was still too high to open schools safely.
