Why today is so emotional for Prince George and Princess Charlotte

When Prince George and Princess Charlotte leave Thomas’s Battersea for the summer vacation, they will experience a whirlwind of emotions.

Charlotte, 7, and George, 8, only attended their school for a half day, but it will have been a particularly difficult one for them because they most likely won’t be attending the London institution in the fall.

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are rumored to be moving to Windsor with their three kids in order to be closer to the Queen and Kate’s parents, who reside in Berkshire.

Given the beginning of the summer holidays, royal fans can anticipate an announcement regarding the family’s relocation very soon, even though reports have not yet been officially confirmed by Kensington Palace.

In the Berkshire countryside, the family will have much more freedom to roam, not to mention that the Queen’s Windsor estate has an astounding 655 acres!

Even so, Friday may have been tinged with sadness for George and Charlotte as they said goodbye to the friends they’ve made while attending Thomas’s, despite the fact that they have a lot to look forward to after their move.

However, given that both siblings spent their respective early childhoods outside of London, they shouldn’t have too much trouble adjusting to a rural lifestyle.

Charlotte and George may not be the only ones who find today difficult; their mother Kate has been seen out and about mingling with other Thomas’s school moms and will undoubtedly miss the group of parents she has been a part of.

Before George began attending school in 2017, there was much talk about whether he would attend Wetherby School in Notting Hill like his father and his uncle Prince Harry.

William and Kate ultimately chose Thomas’s, and they were so happy there that they sent Princess Charlotte there two years later!

Although the name of George, Charlotte, and Louis’ new school has not yet been made public, if their parents’ choice of their elementary school is any indication, teaching the children kindness will be their top priority.

“While we are proud of our record of senior school entrance and scholarship successes, we place a greater emphasis on a set of core values, which include kindness, courtesy, confidence, humility, and learning to be givers, not takers,” reads a statement on the website of Thomas’s Battersea School.
