Prince William and Kate's surprise move for kids: 'Very excited'

Prince William and Kate Middleton have made a surprising change for their children after deciding that they want to do the daily school run.

The royal family are relocating from Apartment 1A Kensington Palace in West London to Adelaide Cottage, near Windsor Castle, The Sun reported.

Nine-year-old George and his younger siblings Charlotte, 7, and Louis, 4, have been enrolled at the Lambrook School, near Ascot, so they can receive a top education together.

A statement was made regarding the change by a Palace source: “This decision to move to Windsor and for George, Charlotte and Louis to go to school together was always about putting the children first. It is the best thing for the kids.

“Both William and Catherine are very keen to do the school run. Lambrook is very much sports-focused and all three children do love their sport.

“George, Charlotte and Louis are very excited about going to school together.”

Their new residence is also much closer to Windsor, where the Queen currently resides.


Before the move, George and Charlotte attended Thomas’ School in Battersea together, with Louis at Willcocks Nursery in South Kensington.

Private school Lambrook costs approximately $12,000 AUD per term, and offers non-traditional extracurricular activities.

Fencing, Mini Masterchef, Film Making and Scuba Diving are just some of the activities listed on their website.

The school boasts an orchard with numerous animals, a nine-hole golf course and many sports pitches.

Princess Charlotte's cheeky expressions

This comes after Princess Charlotte made her first ever public appearance without her brothers while attending the Commonwealth Games.

Social media was abuzz as photos showed young Charlotte acting like a regular child.

Royal fans compared Charlotte to her younger brother Louis, who stole the show during the Platinum Jubilee with his own facial expressions.

Photos showed Charlotte excited, bored, tired and seemingly annoyed throughout the event.

Team England referenced her many facial expressions with a Tweet that read: "Princess Charlotte is all of us watching sport."

"Princess Charlotte is giving her brother Louis a run for his money with these expressions today," another user wrote.

"The highs and lows of live sport…as told by Princess Charlotte," someone else wrote alongside some of the photos.
