Charlotte will start in Reception, which comes before Year 1, while George is about to embark into Year 2.

“The curriculum presented in Year 2 reflects the increased ability of the children, both academically and socially,” said Head of Lower School, Helen Haslem on its website.

“It sees the completion of the basic skills in literacy and numeracy in Key Stage 1. Individual strengths and talents begin to emerge, which you will undoubtedly begin to see.

“The children are asked to become more responsible in Year 2; this may start with children recording their own homework in their diaries,” she continues.

“This increasing independence allows for a smooth transition to the Prep School,” she explains.

The school drop-off and pick-up should be a breeze for the Duke and Duchess of Sussex: Thomas’s Battersea is a quick hop over to the south bank of the River Thames from their Kensington Palace home.

The family have been enjoying what’s left of the summer holidays.

With the children in tow, Prince William and Kate were spotted taking a budget flight from Norwich to the Scottish city of Aberdeen, where it’s understood they continued their journey to Balmoral Castle in the Highlands to visit The Queen.

The Queen tends to spend most summers at her royal Scottish retreat.

Yesterday it was revealed that The Queen was unamused by the damage caused to her Buckingham Palace lawn by Donald Trump’s helicopters when the US President visited the UK in June, jokingly saying it was “ruined”.
