I'm not surprised that the Cambridges have chosen St. Thomas's for Charlotte as well. It will be sweet to see her join her brother at school.
As for secondary schools, I always thought that the Cambridges would do the usual route and choose a school such as Eton for George (and eventually Louis) and Marlborough for Charlotte, though now they'll be at the same prep school together they may wish to continue them attending the same school into their secondary years. It all depends on the different academic abilities of the children and own personal school experiences with secondary education IMO.

I think single sex may play a part but private vs state will have been decided.
I lived next to WA for a number of years as I worked in the area. It was considered for Princess Anne but discounted on a security front. Which I can see as part of it backs on to the exit from M40. I would think it's a no. They will be better, if boarding, to go somewhere more rural. Eton seems a bit to exposed too if I am honest but you can obviously spot suspicious sorts there it is so quiet.

Anyhow I actually don't see them boarding till prep, which is 13. William and George went at 8 but Bea and Eug didn't go till, later but occasionally did flexy boarding and Louise and James don't at all. I would think, given the future workload of Kate and William, that they will board eventually though.

Beatrice didn't board at secondary level at all. She was a day pupil at St George's as Ascot, which is very close to Royal Lodge, throughout her secondary schooling. Eugenie went to Marlborough.

I remember reading, shortly after it was announced that Catherine was pregnant, that she said she would not be sending her children to boarding schools. There are excellent private schools in London and some not far from KP e.g. Westminster School isn't that far and they could just as easily be day students there as board somewhere where they have little contact with their parents.

I'm glad they aren't going to send them to boarding schools....frankly I don't understand why it is a good idea to ship your children off and only see them X times a year.

Beatrice was a flexible boarder. She stayed there sometimes if everyone was away which I get as I don't see it is a nice experience for children to come home solely for staff so both her and Eugenie sometimes stayed in earlier years...but they were older not 8. Eugenie then obviously boarded for Marlborough at 13. Beatrice may have opted to board then too as she was 15 and with parents away a lot and sister in boarding school it may have been lonely experience to be home.

That may change with time. Both William and Catherine went to boarding school when they were kids. I don't think they will go before teens, but I would be surprised if the boys didn't go to Eton.

Boarding school makes sense especially for senior royals. When William and Kate are prince and princess of Wales they will be away a lot. When the kids are in school they will not be able to travel with them. If the kids are going to be home for days with nannies, it makes just as much sense for boarding school. If they go to a nearby boarding school, they can often be home on weekends and such. A flex boarding program would also be a good option.

Was it a direct quite from the Duchess that you read or was it speculation by the Press?

I agree with you that there are excellent secondary day schools in London. If either of the boys is academic enough to make it to Westminster, they will be very lucky and receive a fantastic education. However, my guess is that the Cambridge children will all board from age 13 for the boys and 11 for Charlotte. Depending on how academic the children turn out to be, Malborough may be a strong contender for all three of them. Alternatively, I guess Eton, Harrow and Wycombe Abbey will be contenders.

Princess Charlotte will go to the same school as Prince George, when she starts in September. She’ll join Reception Year at Thomas's Battersea, announces @KensingtonRoyal.

Headteacher of Thomas’s Battersea, Simon O’Malley, said: “We are delighted that The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge have decided that Princess Charlotte will join her elder brother, Prince George, at Thomas’s Battersea. We greatly look forward to welcoming her”.

Not surprised by the news - I had presumed Charlotte would end up at St. Thomas's like George.

Both William and Kate boarded and had mostly happy experiences. Besides it’s the culture and class they are in. Most of children’s future peers in the society Set esp. the boys will board eventually, form life long bonds of friendship and connections that will help them along in life just as W&K have done. I am not seeing why Kate would be against something so ingrained in the set she was raised in and Deny her children all the advantages.

Not only did Kate go to private school, her dad went to private school, her grandfather went to private school, her great grandfather went to private school, etc.

I don't think there's any doubt over the children's future education.

So, what’s big school really going to be like for Charlotte?

Our Schools Guide researchers have previously praised Thomas’s Battersea for its ‘fab music school’ and ‘colourful, inspiring wall displays’ and mentioned that ‘everyone plays an instrument’ as well as sport; ‘cricket in summer, football in winter' with leavers going on to some of the best schools in the country - Eton, Marlborough and Wellington.

Look forward to the pictures of this beautiful family going to school. It feels just like yesterday when little, Charlotte, was charming everyone on the Canadian tour. Now she’s going to school with her big brother.
