Prince George's royal school friend has been revealed—and she holds a special link to Princess Eugenie.
- Prince George has less than a month left until he returns to his London school, where he will reunite with his beloved friend circle—which includes a fellow royal pupil.
- Prince George and Princess Charlotte just so happen to attend the same school as their distant relative, who also carries royal blood.
- In other royal news, Prince Andrew spotted at Balmoral with the Queen hours after US lawsuit accuses him of sexual abuse.
They may be on vacation for now, but come September, Prince George and Princess Charlotte will be back in uniform at their private primary school in London—where they will continue to surround themselves with the royal presence.
The older of Kate Middleton and Prince William's three children attend Thomas's Battersea, an academic institution for the children of society's most affluent families. With fees of £24,000 a year, the elite prep school promises its 600 pupils and their guardians a top-class education—as well as access to a super-posh social circle. Thomas's is known as one of the favored choices for privileged parents determined to give their children a headstart in life, producing uber-successful alumni like Florence Welch and Cara Delevinge.
It's therefore not surprising that Kate and Will aren't the only celebrity parents to send their kids to the posh school. Thomas's is also attended by Maud Windsor, the oldest daughter of Lord Frederick Windsor—whose father, Prince Michael of Kent, just so happens to be the Queen's cousin. The seven-year-old, who was born to the British financial analyst and his wife, actor Sophie Winkleman, is also the goddaughter of Princess Eugenie, Prince Andrew's youngest daughter.
After the news that Prince William refused to have George sent to boarding school after his eighth birthday, it's believed he will enter Year Four alongside Maud at the start of the next term.
At 50th in line to the British throne, it's extremely unlikely that Maud will ever become Queen. However, that doesn't mean she's excluded from royal festivities. While her parents prefer to keep her out of the spotlight for the most part, she has made a handful of public appearances over the past few years. The adorable infant was spotted on the way to Buckingham Palace with mum Sophie and dad Freddie for Christmas lunch in 2019, one year after attending the wedding of Princess Eugenie and Jack Brooksbank as a flower girl.
