I'm not sure, I thought that they were settled in the US, but if they are sending Maud to this school it seems like they are now settled in London. Sophie's job in "2 1/2 Men" is over now and she does not seem to be doing any acting. Perhaps she's being a stay home Mother till her children are older. ANd I'm not sure what Fred does for a living... he used to be with a merchant bank..

Of course they did...George and Maud being in the same class is not a coincidence, for sure...there was also an interview, few years ago, where Lady Frederick Windsor talked about visiting the Cambridges with Maud when the Duchess was pregnant with Charlotte and how the two kids played with each other. After all, as you said William and Frederick have grown up together as playmamates in KP, along with Gabriela and Harry.

It's been reported in the press.

There are three reception classes in that school; George and Maud are in the same one (a class of 21).

HRH The Prince George of Cambridge and Hon. Maud Windsor... Would be awesome. It happens: childhood friends becoming partners. Prince Constantijn of the Netherlands kew Laurentien all his life long, since their parents are befriended since university in the early 1960's.

Gee whiz. The kid has his first day at school and already we need a thread called Relationship Rumors and Suggestions for Prince George.

I do have to admit to thinking the same thing though. The relationship between George and Maud, if we analyze it, is more distant I believe than that of the Queen and Philip. Or similar? I forget and am only on my first cup of coffee so my one brain cell isn't firing at full tilt yet.

As I mentioned above, they have been living back in London since at least February 2016. When they were interviewed after Isabella was born (in London unlike her sister), they mentioned they moved back so the girls were closer to family. Freddie has been working with JP Morgan since 2006, he just transferred back to their London offices when they moved home.

Osipi I listed the relationship of George & Maud in 2 posts on the last page, they are cousins through both the Queen/Prince George The Duke of Kent and Prince Phillip/Princess Marina lines.
Maud's great grandmother (Marina) was the granddaughter of King George of the Hellenes and her grandfather (Prince Michael) the grandson of King George V.
George's great grandfather (Phillip) is also the grandson of King George of the Hellenes and George's great grandmother (QEII) is the granddaughter of King George V.
As for QEII & Phillip's relationship to each other - all I remember is that they both descend from Queen Victoria :) and she had so many children who married into so many Royal families that it's a tangled web to figure out who's related to whom for me.

You did a wonderful job explaining how George and Maud are distantly related. It is a tangled, intricate web that very easy comfuzzles me. I just wasn't sure if the relativity of their relatedness was that George and Maud are more distantly related than the Queen and Philip are.

I think too that as Victoria had a lot of children that did a lot of begetting children, with the Queen's longevity, a lot of her family tree remains alive and well to this day instead of being resigned to dusty archives.

The Queen and Philip are second cousins once removed through Christian IX of Denmark line.
They are third cousins through Queen Victoria's line.

Prince George and Maud are third cousins once removed through British line and fourth cousins through Greek line. They are more distant cousins.

Victoria - Edward VII - George V - George VI - Elizabeth therefore a great-great-grandchild
Victoria - Alice - Victoria - Alice - Philip therefore a great-great-grandchild

Same number of generations from Victoria

Christian IX of Denmark - Alexandra - George V - George VI - Elizabeth therefore a great-great-grandchild
Christian IX of Denmark - William (George I of the Hellenes) - Andrew - Philip therefore a great-grandchild

Philip is one less generation removed from Christian IX

George V - George VI - Elizabeth - Charles - William - George therefore a great-great-great-grandchild
George V - George, Duke of Kent - Michael - Frederick - Maud therefore a great-great-grandchild

Maud is the same generation in descent from George V as is William

George I - Andrew - Philip - Charles - William - George therefore a great-great-great-grandchild
George I - Nicholas - Marina - Michael - Frederick - Maud therefore a great-great-great-grandchild

Therefore same generation for George I of the Hellenes

Did the school tell the press that or are the press making assumption?

Not to seem too picky, but Maud is "Miss Maud Windsor" - not "The Honourable." "Honourables" are the children of Viscounts and Barons, and the younger sons of Earls. George V's Letters Patent of 1917 made no special provisions for the grandchildren of younger sons of Royal Dukes so they are plain "Miss" or "Mister."

We knew nothing about them before.
Why did they decide to put Miss Maud in the same School as Prince George. I saw Lord Frederick not that happy to see the press.

Why does it have to be Maud in the same school as George? Frederick and Sophie could have decided ages ago to send Maud to Thomas'.

Everyone expected George to go somewhere else.

They would have sent her there because it's a good school that suits them

I wouldn't say we knew nothing; there were lots of pictures of their wedding at Hampton Court.

Since Maud and George are the same age, I think it's probable that both sets of parents discussed potential schools beforehand, since we know they see each other on occasion.
