- Princess Charlotte and Prince George might not return to school when Thomas's Battersea (opens in new tab) reopens next month.
- According to The Sunday Times, Kate Middleton and Prince William are reportedly "eager" to keep their children at home while the coronavirus pandemic continues.
- George and Charlotte have been homeschooled during lockdown (opens in new tab).
Despite government advice suggesting that many schools in the United Kingdom may reopen as soon as June, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge (opens in new tab) are reportedly hoping to keep their children at home a little longer.
The Sunday Times (opens in new tab) is reporting that, even when schools reopen, George and Charlotte may not be returning right away. According to the publication, "The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are considering keeping Princess Charlotte at home next month when her school is expected to reopen."
The Sunday Times also revealed, "William and Kate are understood to be eager to keep Prince George, 6, and Charlotte, 5, together, and to maintain their lockdown routine."
Only select year groups are set to return when Thomas's Battersea reopens, meaning that George wouldn't be required to go back right away. As only one of their children would have classes to attend, it makes sense that William and Kate might want to exercise caution and keep their family in lockdown.
The school previously revealed in a statement that learning would be moving online during the pandemic. "We have asked parents to keep their children at home and to access their lessons through this system," a spokesperson from the school said. "This will ensure that children have continuity of learning when they are unable to attend school."
