Prince George ‘to be treated like any other kid’ at boarding school, says expert

Prince George "will be treated like any other student" if he leaves London to start boarding school, a royal expert has said.

After celebrating his eighth birthday last month, rumours began circulating that the young royal could be about to move away from London to begin boarding school – as he is now the same age as his dad Prince William when he made a similar move.

George's parents Prince William and Kate Middleton have reportedly been deciding whether to have him move schools, with one option said to be Ludgrove School in Berkshire – where William himself was taught.

George currently attends Thomas's School in Battersea with his sister Charlotte.

The school educates 600 boys and girls between the ages of four and 13, while youngest brother Louis goes to London's Willcocks Nursery School.

But according to one royal expert, George should not worry if he is sent away to an educational establishment.

Gertrude Daly, who runs the Gerts Royals blog, told the Daily Star says the Cambridges will ensure he already has friends wherever he's sent.

"We have seen some royals have terrible experiences at boarding school, while others have thrived.

"I think both Prince William and Duchess Kate will work hard to make this a positive experience. They will wait until the right time.

"They will probably choose a school where George already knows some of the students.

"So, he will have some built-in friends, and people who are used to having a Prince as a classmate."

Ms Daly adds that George will not get an easy ride just because he's a royal – and will be "treated like any other student".

She added: "Like at Thomas Battersea, George will be known as “George Cambridge” and be treated like any other student.

"They make it so that George can come home on the weekend. So, he doesn’t lose that support system.

Ms Daly previously told the Daily Star that Charlotte "will miss" her older brother if he leaves London this yearfor boarding school.

"Princess Charlotte will of course miss her big brother, as any child would," she said. "But she will be fine when Prince George heads off to boarding school. She seems like a very independent child."
