It seems like Princess Charlotte was just born. And here she is, heading off to school already. Next week, the 3-year-old will be attending her second year at Willocks Nursery School in Kensington.
The kiddo likely won’t have time to miss mom too much. According to IB Times, the little royal will have lots to keep her busy. Her curriculum will include activities that most adults pay for, like pottery and poetry lessons. Reads the school’s website:
The Willcocks Nursery is a traditional nursery school which strives to maintain its ethos for high standards, excellence and good manners.
It is a fun and structured morning with lots of free play where children embark on the first stages of learning to read, write, and to understand simple numbers with the minimum of pressure.
Charlotte’s classes will take place from Monday to Friday from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m., according to the IB Times, which also adds that, “Every day, she and her classmates will sing hymns, read poems, play educational games, and write.”

That is, if her mom and dad enroll her in morning classes and not the less structured afternoon classes. If that’s the case, she’ll start school Sept. 6 instead of Sept. 5.
What’s a little messed up is that Prince George, Charlotte’s 5-year-old brother, has a way tougher grind when he heads to school. According to People:
…the future king will embark on a year-long curriculum that includes core subjects such as math, English, science, history, geography and religious studies. He’ll also be taught by specialist teachers in the subjects of French, computing, art/design, technology, music, drama, P.E. — and even ballet!
And when he returns to the palace, it’s no rest for the weary. Says People, “George will be expected to complete 10 minutes of reading every night. In addition, a spelling rule or pattern will be sent home with the students each week.
George will also be working on his speaking skills, which will come in handy for future royal speeches! He’ll be reciting poetry, telling stories (both real and imagined), reading aloud to a group and taking part in discussions.”
Guess prepping to be a future king is hard work. Even when you still have most of your baby teeth.
