Prince William and Kate Middleton may ‘break royal tradition’ for George

Prince William and Kate, the Duchess of Cambridge, are known for being hands-on parents to their three youngsters.

The Royal couple have been praised for their “modern” approach to parenting.

One royal expert has even suggested that Kate and Wills could do away with royal tradition to protect the happiness of little Prince George.

Both the Duke and Duchess attended boarding school in their youth as did most members of the extended family.

But the path could be different for the George, who is the third in line to the throne.

Royal expert Ingrid Seward suggested that the Cambridges could break royal tradition with George’s schooling, and decide against boarding school.

Speaking to Spanish magazine Quien? she said: “We are used to seeing members of royalty breaking tradition these days, so it won't come as much of a shock if they do things their way.

"I think William and Kate's opinion will be if the children are happy in their school, why change things."

The royal expert continued: "Kate and William are modern parents and will weigh up the decision very carefully.

"I think they’ll wait to see how the children’s personalities develop and take into consideration whether or not they would be happy to live away from home."

The expert said William would rely on his own experience to ensure his oldest son felt happy about his future choices.

She said: “Having experienced terrible trauma in his own childhood, William is very tuned in to his children’s mental health.

"If I was Kate though, I’d feel more secure if George, as heir to the throne, was tucked away at boarding school.

"He’ll have more freedom there and he’ll be very protected from any outside dangers.”

Prince George is currently a pupil at Thomas's Battersea, where his younger sister is also a student.

Prince William attended Ludgrove School in Wokingham before moving on to Eton aged 13 as a full-time boarder.

Prince Charles and his siblings all attended boarding school in their youth, following in Prince Philip's footsteps as they moved from Buckingham Palace to Gordonstoun School in Scotland.

Kate revealed they had combined homeschooling with outdoor activities to keep the children entertained and distracted during lockdown.

George had also reportedly voiced some disappointment at being forced to keep up with his literacy school work while Princess Charlotte got to focus on handmade projects.

The Duchess said: "George gets very upset because he wants to do Charlotte's projects.

"Because making things like spider sandwiches is far cooler than doing literacy work!"
