KATE MIDDLETON and Prince William were seen dropping their two oldest children off at school earlier this month, but why is there a “far more interesting“ mum at Princess Charlotte and Princess George’s school?
Princess Charlotte started school earlier this month, attending the same school as older brother Prince George. Both Kate and Prince William were spotted dropping their children off at school for Charlotte’s first day. This was a first for Kate, as she had missed George’s first day due to severe morning sickness when she was pregnant with Prince Louis.
Princess Charlotte, four, and Prince George, six, attend Thomas’s School in Battersea.
The school is an exclusive one, costing £6,429 per term for one child.
As Charlotte is the second Cambridge child to attend Thomas’s, she will be granted a discount, costing £6,305 per term.
This means the yearly cost for Charlotte and George to attend their school would be £38,202.

Parents of children at the private London school are expected to be hands-on with their children’s school experience.
Journalist and presenter Jane Moore spoke on Loose Women about her insider knowledge of the school, including what will be expected of Kate and Wills.
She said on the ITV show: “It’s a school that really expects parental involvement.
“The parents are very heavily involved in the school so [Kate and William] will be as well.”

This means the Cambridge’s may have to pencil in school events into their diaries for both George and Charlotte.
Both Kate and William are reportedly regularly undertaking the school run, and are seen so often parents are no longer surprised when the royals turn up.
However, one parent told the Daily Mail there is another mum who people find more interesting than Kate and Wills – especially the dads.
They said: “No one really gives Kate a second glance when she does the school drop-off.

“We have a Victoria’s Secret model doing the school run, too, and the dads are far more interested in her!”
There is another royal who attends Thomas’s as well, as Maud Windsor is a pupil at the same school as cousin’s George and Charlotte.
Maud is the daughter of Lord Frederick Windsor, who is the only son of Prince and Princess Michael of Kent.
Lord Frederick is currently 49th in line to the throne and is married to the sister of tv presenter Claudia Winkleman – Sophie Winkleman.
