Prince William, Kate Middleton and “all the gang” showcased family unity as they visited Lambrook School ahead of the first day of the autumn term. 


Following months of speculation that they were planning to relocate from Kensington Palace to be nearer the Queen at Windsor Castle, Prince William and Kate Middleton confirmed their Windsor move last month. The Cambridge family’s new home is understood to be the beautiful four-bedroom Adelaide Cottage in Windsor, meaning the Queen’s great-grandchildren are now living just a stone’s throw away from her. Announcing the news of their move, the future King and Queen Consort revealed that Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis would be starting at Lambrook School.

Bidding Thomas’s Battersea School a fond farewell, the Cambridges showcased their incredible bond during a visit to Lambrook on September 7th. Ahead of the start of term, Prince William, Kate Middleton and “all the gang” enjoyed a settling-in day - and the pictures are utterly adorable!

Wearing smart navy uniforms, Prince George, Charlotte and Louis - who had previously attended Willcock’s Nursery School - were photographed walking hand-in-hand with their proud parents in the September sunshine. Kate Middleton’s Rixo polka dot dress was every bit as stunning as we’ve come to expect, whilst Prince William echoed the colour palette of their kids’ uniforms with a smart navy suit - perhaps unsurprising given the Royal Family wears blue very regularly.

Upon their arrival at Lambrook School, the family met Headmaster, Jonthan Perry, who shook hands with the three royal children. As per BBC (opens in new tab), Prince William encouraged Prince George, Charlotte and Louis up the steps and referred to them affectionately as “all the gang”.

Jonathan is said to have told them it was “lovely to have you with us” and the Cambridge kids exclaimed “yes” when asked if they were excited about starting at Lambrook. Meanwhile, Prince William shared that they were “all looking forward to it” and his children had “lots of questions.

The Cambridges’ first full day at Lambrook will be Thursday, September 8th and the curriculum at the prestigious preparatory school includes everything from English and Science to Latin and Greek. 

Though in a few years’ time Prince William and Kate Middleton face another decision for Prince George as Lambrook teaches pupils aged 3-13.

Until then, they’ll all likely be enjoying settling into a new routine in Berkshire. Back in June, The Times reported (opens in new tab) that a source claimed, “The reality is they are quite confined in what they can do in London. The kids can’t go into the park and kick a football with friends. Their plan is to be there for the next ten to 15 years and then move to Anmer, which is so special to them.”

Now the Cambridges have plenty of space and freedom in their stunning new surroundings as “all the gang” begin the autumn term at their new school.
