The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are making big changes for their first born son.
Many people will remember Prince Charles revealing his young boarding school experience at the isolated Scottish establishment, Gordonstoun, as “a prison sentence”, calling the school “Colditz in kilts”.
Vowing to never put his own sons through the same experience, it seems the same thought has rubbed off on Prince William who has recently revealed a huge change to his own son's education.
According to editor Ingrid Seward of Majesty magazine, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are facing a 'difficult decision' to send their 'shy' son, Prince George to boarding school, likening his personality to that of his sensitive grandfather.
The royal couple have been home-schooling their six-year-old son with Princess Charlotte and brother, Prince Louis for months at Anmer Hall in Norfolk through the Coronavirus pandemic, and George has apparently flourished.
The editor told Ok! magazine that Kate Middleton and Prince William are 'modern parents', saying, "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.
"Having experienced terrible trauma in his own childhood, William is very tuned in to his children's mental health."
While five-year-old Princess Charlotte 'appears very confident' and 'would suit the boarding environment', the royal expert added that Prince George is 'a shy little boy' and may struggle without the family environment.
However, she also detailed that Kate Middleton may 'feel more secure' if her son attended a boarding school so that he would be protected, 'tucked away' and 'have more freedom' without being in the public eye.
Both Kate Middleton and Prince William attended boarding schools as children, with the prince becoming a full-time boarder at just eight-years-old at Ludgrove School in Berkshire, before completing high school at Eton College.
The royal couple are known to be progressive parents and won't come as a huge shock should they choose to steer away from royal traditions for their children.
Both Prince George and Princess Charlotte are due to continue their schooling at Thomas's Battersea when the pandemic restrictions ease, before making a decision on their next step.
