And the day has arrived! Prince George, Princess Charlotte, and Prince Louis have officially started their school term at the new school – Lambrook. The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge accompanied their three children for the settling day at the school where term starts tomorrow. This summer has brought a new phase of life to the Cambridge family.
We all were expecting to see them tomorrow morning ahead of their school day, but it seems the couple has decided to make it more private and personal for the kids and leave them alone for their first school day. Today was what the school called a ‘settle-in afternoon’ where Children meet with other classmates – an annual event held to welcome new starters & families on the day before the start of the new school term
They were greeted by Headmaster Jonathan Perry as they arrive for a ‘settling-in afternoon’ at Lambrook School. About the day, Kensington Palace said, “Ahead of their first day at Lambrook School, Prince George, Princess Charlotte, and Prince Louis, accompanied by The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, today attended a settling in afternoon for new pupils at the school“.
We have not seen the family for almost a month and we saw Prince George last time at the Wimbledon finale while Princess Charlotte’s last outing was at the Commonwealth Games in July.
Just a month, in which 9 years old George decided to grow a few more inches taller and has already reached his Mummy’s shoulders.

It is the first time little Louis has joined his older siblings at the school. He just finished Nursery in London while both George and Charlotte finished their school term at Thomas’s Battersea in London.
Cambridge children are not the first Royal kids to study at the 52-Acres of beautiful Berkshire county school.
Some more about Lambrook – The new school of Future King and his siblings, “There has been a private school at Winkfield Row since 1860 when Robert Burnside acquired Lambrook House with an eye on tutoring the sons of courtiers of Windsor Castle. 140 years ago, in 1878, two of Queen Victoria’s grandsons, Prince Christian Victor and Prince Albert of Schleswig-Holstein, were pupils at Lambrook. Queen Victoria travelled to the school many times to watch her grandsons participating in school activities.”

Prince George and Princess Charlotte’s school curriculum have lessons in English, Maths, Science, Greek, History, Geography, ICT, Art, Design and Technology, Drama, Music, Religious Studies, and Physical Education. Swimming and Games also form part of the curriculum. Prince George will also study Latin at the school. Lambrook School also has 178 London Academy of Music and Dramatic Art (LAMDA) lessons on offer each week, along with 420 individual music lessons, from tap dancing to bagpipe playing. The school also offers golf, lacrosse, badminton, and basketball, as well as more traditional British school sports like rugby, football, hockey, and netball.
A look back at Prince George’s first day at school in 2017. The future King started his formal education at Thomas’s Battersea. He was accompanied by his dad Prince William on his first day as Mummy was suffering from morning sickness.
Two years later George was joined by his younger sister Princess Charlotte at the same school and we got this gorgeous shot from the day. One might not have thought about it at that time, but these pictures are now part of Royal history. In the decades to come these pictures will be used as throwbacks to future King and his sibling’s first days of school.
Just like this one.
To provide their children more private life away from the media and public eye where they can have as much normal life as possible, The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge moved to Adelaide Cottage – a 4 bedroom home on the Windsor grounds last week.
The move brought them closure to the Queen, The Middleton family, The Matthews Family, and of course Lambrook school which is just 15 minutes drive from Adelaide Cottage. The decision to move out of Kensington Palace and make the small and cozy cottage their family base was predominantly motivated by the thought of children and their wellbeing.
For the day, The Duchess of Cambridge was looking gorgeous in a brown Rixo Izzy Dress. Thanks to KateMiddStyle on Twitter for the id. The £209 dress was described as, “Our Izzy has all the effortless prep of a Hepburn-Esque shirtdress, made unique by our vintage-inspired Copper Dot print. With a vintage aesthetic, the Izzy dress has been crafted from sustainable viscose. Boasting a polka dot print all over, 3/4 sleeves, and a pleated skirt, the RIXO dress is complete with a flattering silhouette as it hugs the waist and hips. “
The couple will be slowly moving towards their royal agenda once the kids have settled down in the new home and new school. Next, we will see the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge on September 13th when they will visit Aik Saath (‘Together As One’ in Hindi, Punjabi, and Urdu) in Slough. Aik Saath is a charity dedicated to working with young people to create positive social change in the community.
