- Catherine, the new Princess of Wales, has revealed that Prince George, Princess Charlotte, and Prince Louis have 'settled in nicely' to Lambrook School in Berkshire.
- The three children of the Prince and Princess of Wales had their first full day at Lambrook last week, after moving from Kensington Palace in London to Adelaide Cottage in Windsor over the summer.

Kate, the Duchess of Cambridge and Cornwall, has shared an encouraging update on her and Prince William's children and their adjustment to Lambrook School in Windsor. The Princess of Wales revealed they've 'settled in nicely' during their first week at the elite preparatory school and have even made new friends.
The newly appointed Princess of Wales shared the sweet news at Sandringham Estate on Thursday, where she and Prince William spent about 45 minutes viewing tributes to the late Queen Elizabeth II, who died aged 96 at Balmoral Castle.
"Kate said the children have settled in nicely with their new school and have new friends,” Lydia Bailey, a mourner from Heacham who attended the solemn Norfolk engagement, told People magazine (opens in new tab).
Prince George, nine, Princess Charlotte, seven, and four-year-old Prince Louis had their first full day at Lambrook School on Thursday, 8 September, the same day their great-grandmother, the Queen, passed away.
The eldest Wales children had previously been pupils at Thomas's Battersea in south London, while Louis was enrolled at Willcock's Nursery in Kensington. The children's move to Lambrook marks the first time they have all attended the same school – a transition that's expected to make their morning routines that little bit less chaotic.
It's understood that William and Kate had long been planning to leave London for the Berkshire countryside, where they reportedly hope to give their three children a more normal life outside of the royal spotlight. It will also bring the Wales family closer to their relatives, with Princess Catherine's parents, Michael and Carole Middleton, residing less than an hour away at Bucklebury Manor in Berkshire.
As well as sharing an update as to how their children were settling into school, the Prince and Princess also spoke candidly during their appearance in Sandringham about how they have been feeling over the past week, with the future King and Queen Consort sharing an insight into their grief.
Catherine confessed that the whole Royal Family were very 'tried' but, "the crowds and peoples’ support is keeping us going."
