Prince William and Kate Middleton are set to face another difficult decision for Prince George in just a few years’ time.  

After months of speculation, Prince William and Kate Middleton confirmed their Windsor move ahead of the autumn school term for Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis. Earlier this year reports suggested that the future King and Queen Consort were hoping to move out of London to be closer to the Queen at Windsor Castle. Since then rumors have arisen that their new residence of choice is Adelaide Cottage, Windsor and as the Cambridges prepare to move it seems it will be a summer of change, especially for their children. 

As the oldest and third in the royal line of succession, Prince George is the one who perhaps has the biggest future ahead of him. And Prince William and Kate Middleton could face another difficult decision for him in just a few years’ time…

Prince George, Charlotte and Louis’ new school in Windsor has now been announced as the highly prestigious Lambrook School. As a co-educational establishment, all the Cambridge kids will be educated together and the curriculum includes everything from English and Mathematics to Latin, Greek, Swimming and Games. 

However, as revealed on the Lambrook website, they teach boys and girls from the ages of 3-13. This means that nine-year-old Prince George will only be attending Lambrook for the next four years and that before long, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge will have to choose a secondary school for him.

This will likely be no easy decision as they consider what’s best for their son who's growing up in the royal spotlight. Both Prince William and his younger brother Prince Harry were both educated at Eton College whilst their father Prince Charles went to Gordonstoun boarding school in Scotland.

It’s not known whether the Duke and Duchess would ever consider a boarding school for their son’s later education and reports have previously claimed Prince William refuses to send Prince George to boarding school. Though they could potentially look into a secondary school closer to their new Berkshire home, or Prince George could maybe follow in his father’s footsteps and go to Eton. 

So far the parents-of-three have also shown a preference for having their children attend co-educational schools, perhaps indicating that could be a factor. Whatever happens, this will be a huge decision for Prince William and Kate coming not long after their choice to leave Kensington Palace for Berkshire.

Back in June, The Times reported that a source claimed the Cambridges were “confined” in London and wanted to give the kids more freedom.

“The reality is they are quite confined in what they can do in London,” the insider alleged. “The kids can’t go into the park and kick a football with friends."

They'll soon have plenty of countryside to explore and although Prince William and Kate Middleton will face a difficult decision for Prince George before long, for now they will likely just be looking forward to getting settled in their new home.
