For fans of the royals, your most likely holiday wish has been answered: a new family photo from the Cambridges! Prince William and Kate Middleton (a.k.a. the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge) released a new family picture with Prince George and Princess Charlotte.
Here’s the full Instagram post, which includes a note from William and Kate:
A new family photo – Merry Christmas from The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, Prince George and Princess Charlotte. The Duke and Duchess are hugely appreciative of all the warm messages they have received about their family this year and are very much looking forward to their first Christmas as a family of four.
Also, George is about to start something new: he’s going to school! His father, Prince William, was the first royal to begin his education in a nursery school rather than be tutored at home in the Palace. Now George is following in his father’s footsteps. Kensington Palace issued the following press release:
Prince George will begin to attend the Westacre Montessori School Nursery in Norfolk before the end of January.
The Westacre Montessori School Nursery have said:
“We are looking forward to welcoming George to our nursery where he will get the same special experience as all of our children.”
William’s mother, the late Princess Diana, was a fan of the Montessori method. I remember she was working in a nursery school when she met Prince Charles: I’m not sure if it was a Montessori school or not, but her influence continues to be felt. It’ll be an exciting time for George!
