The INSIDER Summary:
- Prince George is attending Thomas’s Battersea school in London.
- The most important school rule is “Be kind.”
- Students are encouraged to be nice to everyone and not single out people as their best friends.
Thomas’s Battersea school in London gained a new royal pupil this year.
As part of Prince William and Kate Middleton’s transition into taking on more royal duties, they enrolled their oldest son Prince George in the prep school, which is about 30 minutes from Buckingham Palace and costs $23,000 a year.
In addition to enjoying delicacies like lamb ragout and Portuguese egg custard tarts for lunch, students at Thomas’s Battersea must abide by the most important school rule: be kind.
“There are signs everywhere saying ‘Be kind,’ that’s the ethos of the school,” said Jane Moore on the British talk show Loose Women. “They don’t encourage you to have best friends.”
For example, Moore said, if a student wants to give out invitations to a party at school, all students in the class must be invited so that no one feels excluded.
He may be royalty, but to his teachers and classmates the four-year-old prince is just plain old “George Cambridge.” He’s sure to make plenty of friends on the playground.
