Prince George has a ‘trial day’ at his new school close to Windsor – but his classmates ‘don’t recognise’ the future King or ‘understand his status’
- Prince George has had a ‘trial class’ in a school close to Windsor, it has emerged
- The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge have visited the school at least six times
- The couple are considering whether to send their other children to the school
Prince George has had a ‘trial day’ at a school close to Windsor that his parents, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, have been to visit half a dozen times.
William and Kate have been considering where their eldest son should continue his education and, as the Daily Mail reported yesterday, are also thinking about sending their other children, Princess Charlotte, six, and Prince Louis, four, to the same school.
According to a source close to the school – which The Mail on Sunday has decided not to identify – teachers arranged a settling in-style ‘trial class’ for the eight-year-old future King.

Teachers are understood to have been amused and relieved that the other children in the class did not recognise George or understand his status. While the school has several children from wealthy European and Russian families, it is not as high profile as Ludgrove School in Berkshire, where William went, or Marlborough College, where Kate was schooled.
George’s formal education began, aged two, at the Westacre Montessori School Nursery near the family’s Norfolk home Anmer Hall. He enrolled at Thomas’s School in Battersea, South London, in September 2017.
Meanwhile, officials are inviting punks to march on Buckingham Palace to help celebrate her Platinum Jubilee. Organisers are urging volunteers young and old to take part in a street pageant reflecting each of the seven decades of the Queen’s reign. It could see men in their 60s reaching to the back of their wardrobes for an old Sex Pistols T-shirt or Millennials recreating Adam Ant’s 1980s look complete with a white line across their face.

The event is being masterminded by award-winning designer Wayne Hemingway and aims to ‘represent and bring to life the subcultures that have emerged’ since the Queen ascended the Throne in 1952. An advert calling for participants breaks down the ‘cast list’ for the 6,000-strong street party, held in London on Sunday, June 5.
For the 1950s, ‘Lambeth Walkers and Jivers’ are required; ‘Mods, Hippies and Rude Boys/Girls’ for the 1960s; while ‘Space Hoppers, Hula Hoopers, Punks and Glam Rockers’ are needed to represent the 1970s. Thousands of volunteers have already come forward but more are needed. According to the organisers, those proving to be the most elusive are the ‘Goths and New Romantics’ of the 1980s and the ‘Acid Ravers, Britpoppers, Girl Power, Garage Heads and Indie Kids’ to represent the 1990s. For the more recent 2000s, pageant organisers are looking for ‘Festival Goers, Emos and Notting Hill Carnival dancers’.
A source said: ‘We’ve had a lot of interest, particularly for those representing the 50s and 60s. It’s going to be a great party. Someone from The Specials group is coming and is going to bring all his mates. But what we’re still really looking for are volunteers from the more recent years – the 1990s and 2000s.’
The street pageant will culminate in live gigs from well-known performers yet to be confirmed. The deadline for volunteers has been pushed back to May 1 to gather as many ‘genuine fans’ of each era as possible. The Jubilee festivities will be concentrated over a four-day bank holiday starting on Thursday, June 2.
