Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis are headed back to school!
The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge took their three children to a welcome afternoon Wednesday for new pupils at Lambrook School in Berkshire, a county in southeast England where Windsor Castle is located, a day before the start of the new term on Sept. 8.
Lambrook, a preparatory school for children ages 3 to 13, holds a similar “settling in” event each year to welcome new students and their families, according to a release from Kensington Palace.
This is a new school for all three of the children following the family’s move to Adelaide Cottage, a four-bedroom house on the grounds of Windsor Castle.
Prince William and the former Kate Middleton previously said in a statement that they are “pleased to have found a school for all three of their children which shares a similar ethos and values to Thomas’s.”
Lambrook, founded in 1860, is situated on 52 acres of grounds, which include an orchard, a nine-hole golf course, sports pitches and facilities housing bees, chickens, pigs and lambs, according to the school’s website.
The institution began as a boys’ boarding school and began admitting day students in 1992.
The school has a history of welcoming royal pupils. In 1878, two of Queen Victoria’s grandsons attended Lambrook, and according to the school’s website, Victoria sometimes traveled by carriage from Windsor Castle to watch the boys’ school plays and cricket matches.
Lambrook headmaster Jonathan Perry said in an earlier statement that the school was “delighted” to welcome George, Charlotte and Louis this year.
