The reason Princess Charlotte isn’t allowed a best friend at school laid bare


PRINCESS CHARLOTTE’s time at school will be unlike many others as the young royal is prevented from having a best friend in the classroom, reports claim.

Princess Charlotte, six, joined her older brother Prince George, eight, at Thomas’s School in Battersea back in 2019. But the move to the £18,000-a-year south-west London independent school comes with a slightly different catch.

While many young Brits will expect to meet their best friend during their time at school, the Cambridges eldest children are not allowed to have just one best friend while still in the classroom.

This is because the independent school has reportedly come up with a rule to prevent pupils from being left out.

Loose Women panellist and royal reporter Jane Moore said: “It’s a really great little school actually for the reasons I think that it really focuses on kindness, it’s a really big thing in that school and the pastoral care is amazing.

“There’s a policy that if your child is having a party, unless every child in the class is invited, you don’t give out invites in class.

“There are signs everywhere saying be kind, that’s the ethos of the school.

“They don’t encourage you to have best friends.”

Thomas’s commitment to kindness is embodied in their ‘Be Kind’ motto and their special values.

These values include kindness, courtesy, honesty, respect, perseverance, independence, confidence, leadership, humility and being givers, not takers.
