I take it that the information on the school I found in London doesn't apply then?

I know things are different in the UK than in the States but here we do deem parochial schools as private schools with higher tuition and acceptance policies.

Very amusing!!

I know many of William and Harry's longterm friends stem from their school days, do any go back as far as Wetherby?

This is a boys school so Charlotte will go elsewhere. What likely facilities are there nearby for her?

Wetherby has a sister school, Pembridge, which would be a good possibility.

But I am sure some of their friends and extended family with girls in school in London will have suggestions as well.

They went to school in Windsor, near the family home.

Started studying at Winkfield Montessori and then went to Upton house.

Eugenie later attended st George's, Windsor. This is the school lady Louise currently attends. But she finished her schooling at Marlborough, the school Kate went to.

Beatrice attended st George's as well but the ascot location. Unlike Eugenie, she finished her schooling there.


The duke of Gloucester sent his daughters here, which is in notting hill

Thanks Jack.
Could some of the current posts about the topic be moved there? The last post on that thread was made very long ago.

The school fees alone sets it apart from your average school so not sure why the uniform cost would stir up an elitism debate.

Camilla T has an article about George in tomorrow's Sunday Express that does purport to have new information:

Prince George school plans: The royal child will attend different school | Royal | News | Daily Express

TL : DR - Rather than enrolling George at Wetherby, they're considering enrolling him at the brand new Wetherby - Kensington satellite location because it's a) closer, b) smaller and c) won't have so many celebrity kids as the Notting Hill Wetherby, thereby cutting down on the number of paps.

With that said, the claim of a five-minute walk from KP don't seem to be borne out by Google Maps, based on the location of the new satellite school given on the Wetherby website.

IF this story is true, sending George there will increase the number of paps.

It's the same school. different location.

I had the same thought myself, Cepe, about the number of paps.

I'm sorry, I thought specifying that it was a satellite school was adequate to express that I knew it was the same school, different location. I apologize for being unclear.

No - you were clear, its the article which says different school!

Sunday papers do produce masses of fluff!

Isn't there laws about photographing underage kids without their parents permission. I can't imagine the police allowing the paps to camp in front of a school every day. There will be pictures on his first day when his parents take him.

We didn't really see a constant stream of photos from William and Harry going to school. George isn't going to be walking to school. His police detail will take him.

He is mixing with a girl everyday in the form of his little sister.

The article's claim is that, while the paps are prohibited from taking pictures of the kids of celebs, pick-up and drop-off times become something of a salmon run for pictures of the parents, with paps being the bears waiting eagerly for multitudes of tasty fish to swim by sans spawn.

George's RPOs would have stay with him anyways so more than likely they will be the main people taking him to school.

The Editors' Code of Practice has this to say about children

i) All pupils should be free to complete their time at school without unnecessary intrusion.

ii) They must not be approached or photographed at school without permission of the school authorities.

iii) Children under 16 must not be interviewed or photographed on issues involving their own or another child’s welfare unless a custodial parent or similarly responsible adult consents.

iv) Children under 16 must not be paid for material involving their welfare, nor parents or guardians for material about their children or wards, unless it is clearly in the child's interest.

v) Editors must not use the fame, notoriety or position of a parent or guardian as sole justification for publishing details of a child's private life.
