Meghan Markle and Prince Harry aren't the only British royals who are forging their own path when it comes to royal life. Kate Middleton and Prince William are apparently doing the same, especially when it comes to their family.

While the future King and Queen of England tend to follow royal protocol and traditions more closely than some others, they have no problem steering away from the status quo when it comes to their children -- Prince George, 6, Princess Charlotte, 4, and Prince Louis, 1 -- starting with what school they attend.

"William and Catherine surprised many with their choice of Thomas’s Battersea for George over more traditional royal schools, but picked it because they felt it was the right fit for him," a source revealed, according to Express.

"They are very keen to allow George to spread his wings as a child and won’t ever do what people expect them to do when it comes to their children."

It's not surprising the Cambridge's are open to raising their children differently, especially because of Duchess Kate's commoner background.

"She wants to emulate her upbringing, living in the countryside with a close-knit family," an unnamed friend of the royal shared with People Magazine in September. They added, "She desperately wants that normality for her own kids."

When it comes down to it, choosing schools and activities for their children are very minimal royal traditions to break and is likely the least of anyone's worries.
