Why Kate Middleton and Prince William Might Not Send Charlotte Back to School This Summer

As lockdown measures begin to loosen across the United Kingdom, some schools — including Thomas Battersea, where Prince George and Princess Charlotte are students — have been given the green light to reopen as soon as June. However, the Cambridge children may not be returning right away.

According to The Sunday Times, Kate Middleton and Prince William "are considering keeping Princess Charlotte at home next month when her school is expected to reopen." While both George and Charlotte attend the same school, they are in different year groups and only select grades (reception, year 1, and year 6) are allowed to go back. George is in year 2, which isn't one of the groups that can return to the classroom.

It makes sense for Kate and William not to want to send Charlotte back before George, so they will allegedly "maintain their lockdown routine" with all three kids.

Earlier this month, Kate opened up about homeschooling her two oldest children during the coronavirus pandemic, and she said George, in particular, is having hard time adjusting to the new normal. "George gets very upset because he just wants to do all of Charlotte's projects," Kate revealed while speaking with ITV. "Spider sandwiches are far cooler than literacy work!"

Looks like the homework wars are going to continue into summer.
