“Their Royal Highnesses are delighted to have found a school where they are confident George will have a happy and successful start to his education,” Kensington palace said in a statement.

The decision to chose Thomas’s Battersea came as a big surprise to royal observers, who hedged their bets on Wetherby School and Wetherby Kensington.

An inside source told the Sunday Express that Kate and William liked the idea of sending George to the Kensington school.

“The Duke and Duchess like the idea of George enrolling at the new smaller school because it is much more discreet than the original Wetherby,” the source said.

“A few of the pupils at that school in Notting Hill are the children of celebrities so it has always attracted quite a lot of paparazzi.

“Although the children cannot be photographed, there is still a market for pictures of famous parents on the school run.”

‘It is very good, very sweet,’ William said after he downed the shot in one. ‘And very strong,’ Kate added as she recovered from downing the 40 per cent proof liqueur.
Thousands of locals lined the central market square as the royals arrived to experience a live demonstration of amber processing before trying out local delicacies.
As the royal couple emerged from the town hall to the strains of Handel’s ‘Zadok the Priest’ – played at every English monarch’s coronation since King George II in 1727 – the crowds cheered enthusiastically.
Tomorrow, the Duke and Duchess renew their friendly sporting rivalry, that seems to play a part in most of their trips, when they visit the picturesque Germany city of Heidelberg, twinned with Cambridge.

After all, both Prince William and Harry attended Wetherby themselves until they turned eight and went to board at Ludgrove School in Berkshire and Eton College near Windsor.

The school prides itself on its “record of senior school entrance and scholarship successes” but places an emphasis on “kindness, courtesy, confidence, humility and learning to be givers, not takers”.

One is not amused! Understandably Prince George seemed a little underwhelmed by the formality of the occasion and was seen fidgeting and swinging his legs as his father received an official welcome
