Kate Middleton and Prince William’s children Prince George and Princess Charlotte are reportedly not allowed to have best friends in school, a new tabloid story claims.

The eldest son and daughter of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are back to school after their term break. Princess Charlotte had her first day of school at Thomas’s Battersea in London on Thursday. 

Prince William and Middleton accompanied their kids and were photographed dropping them at school. However, according to New Idea, the royal children are discouraged from having best friends due to a spirit of inclusion at the private school.

“There’s a policy that if your child is having a party, unless every child in the class is invited, you don’t give out the invites in class,” British talk show host Jane Moore said.

“There are signs everywhere saying be kind, that's the ethos of the school. They don’t encourage you to have best friends.”

Although kids aren’t encouraged to have best friends in school, Moore praised the school because it focuses on kindness. She added that the “pastoral care is amazing.” In addition, the school makes sure that the children’s parents are really involved.

“It’s a school that really expects parental involvement. The parents are very heavily involved in the school so (William and Kate) will be as well,” Moore added.

At school, Princess Charlotte and Prince George won’t be addressed with their royal title. Princess Charlotte won’t be called “princess” so as her older brother. Prince William and Middleton’s children will simply be known as George Cambridge and Charlotte Cambridge to their teachers and classmates. Also, they won’t receive any special treatments.

When Prince George was about to join the school, Ben Thomas, former headmaster of Thomas’s Battersea said that the future king would be treated just like any other student. The school aims to provide a safe, secure and happy environment to all of their pupils. He added that there would be no special treatment and that’s how his parents and any parent would like for their child to have a fulfilling and private childhood.
