William and Kate faced the difficult decision of sending George to Boarding school

 PRINCE WILLIAM and Kate, Duchess of Cambridge, faced a difficult decision on whether to send George to boarding school, according to a royal expert.

Prince George, eight, and Princess Charlotte, six, will return to school this September, after the family enjoyed a six-week summer holiday. After a summer at the Isles of Scilly and therefore the Queen’s Balmoral Estate George, who is third-in-line to the throne, will head into Year Four and his sister Charlotte will begin Year Two. William and Kate’s two oldest children both attend school Thomas’s Battersea in south west London, shortly from Kensington Palace.

Younger brother Prince Louis, will continue at Willcocks preschool , having joined last April. 

Yet consistent with a royal expert, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge would have faced a dilemma on whether to send George to private school this year.

Though Thomas’s Battersea takes students up to the age of 13, royals are traditionally sent away to prep school aged eight.

Ingrid Seward told OK! Magazine last year: “Kate and William are modern parents and can weigh up the choice very carefully.

I think they’ll wait to ascertain how the children’s personalities develop and take into consideration whether or not they might be happy to measure faraway from home. 

“Having experienced terrible trauma in his own childhood, William is extremely tuned in to his children’s psychological state .” 

Aged eight, both William and younger brother Prince Harry were sent to Ludgrove School, an independent preparatory private school in Berkshire, before getting to Eton College at 13. 

Heir apparent to the throne, Charles , was educated at Cheam School before being sent to Gordonstoun, like his father the Duke of Edinburgh.
