Like father, like son. Prince George is reported to be leaving his Montessori school near his Anmer Hall home for Wetherby School in London.
Both Prince William and Prince Harry attended the school which runs at £6,865 a term. It has been said that Prince Charles picked the Notting Hill school because it is close to their London home.
Ken Wharfe, Prince William’s bodyguard at the time of his Wetherby days, spoke to HELLO! magazine stating how it will be the obvious choice for Prince George too.
“They were certainly very happy times for William and of course his brother,” Ken said to the magazine.
Last Spring, Prince William spoke of how the Duchess of Cambridge and he were looking for the next school for George, saying: “They’re both doing very well at the moment – noisy but lovely. Just trying to sort out schools now – it’s going very well.”
The school’s motto ‘Care, Share and Be Fair’ must have resonated with them.
On William’s first day in 1987, he and his mother, Diana, Princess of Wales were photographed arriving. Royal Watchers can expect that the moment will be repeated on Prince George’s first day.
The change in school comes as reports of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are also rumoured to be planning a move from Anmer Hall to their home at Kensington Palace.
Prince William who is only working as part-time royal fills the rest of his time as a pilot for East Anglian Air Ambulance. Yet, his contract that is through Bond Air Services will end in March. At that point, he must decide if he will extend it or become a full-time royal, at a time where it seems Queen Elizabeth is going to need younger members of the Firm to play a larger role.
The Duchess is also expected to increase her royal duties with the move to London.
