4 mins read

The three royal youngsters were greeted by Headmaster Jonathan Perry as they arrived at Lambrook School, near Ascot in Berkshire.

George, nine, Charlotte, seven, and Louis, four, attended the school for a 90-minute settling-in session on Wednesday afternoon.

The event is held the day before the start of a new school term, and all new starters and their families are invited to help the pupils become familiar and more comfortable with the school.

The three royals will have their first proper day at the new school on Thursday (September 8).

The three children strolled hand-in-hand with their parents, wearing their summer uniforms, and were greeted by Headmaster Jonathan Perry.

Upon meeting the family, he said to the children: “Welcome to Lambrook. It’s lovely to have you with us. We’re very excited for the year ahead.”

He then shook them all by the hand and asked if they were excited, with all kids chorusing, “yes”.

William replied: “We’re looking forward to it,” adding the children had “lots of questions”.

Mr Perry’s wife Jenny, who works in the pastoral team, was waiting in the doorway and greeted them with “Welcome back to Lambrook”, with William quipping “with all the gang”.

William was also seen stroking his youngest, Louis’ hair reassuringly, conscious it is his very first day at big school.

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge were heard laughing with their children outside the entrance before going inside with the children for refreshments before the three kids went to their new classroom.

The prep school is located in 52 acres of Berkshire not far from the Queen’s Windsor residence.

The two eldest children, George and Charlotte, began their education at Thomas’s Battersea school, while Louis went to Wilcocks Nursery in Kensington before the summer.

But following the Cambridge’s move out of London to Windsor, the trio will attend the Berkshire school together.

Lambrook School is less than a 15-minute drive away from the Cambridges’ new home.

Kate and William, along with their three children, now live in Adelaide Cottage in Windsor’s Home Park after the Queen gave them permission to lease the four-bedroom Grade II listed house.

One reason for the Duke and Duchess’s decision to move was to give their children a more “normal” upbringing.
