Kate Middleton and Prince William with their two precious children! With Christmas just one week away, the Royal Family has released a lovely Christmas family photo along with their two children, wishing everyone a very happy Christmas. In a statement issued by the palace, it mentioned that the Royal Family appreciates the warm messages that they received this year and are looking forward to spending Christmas with their children and family members.
Chris Jelf, who was the photographer said that he enjoyed a lot photographing the lovely family. Apparently, he had to be very quick at clicking the pictures, as there were two young children involved and getting the perfect shot was tricky.
The picture, which was released on Friday was taken in October in the Kensington Palace garden. It saw the smiling Duke and the Duchess kneeling, Price George standing beside the queen and Princess Charlotte sitting casually on her mother’s knee. The 2 1/2-year-old prince was seen in blue shorts and light blue sweater. Princess Charlotte was seen wearing a white printed frock along with a white sweater. In the picture, a toy train in red can also be seen lying in the ground perfectly.
While wishing Merry Christmas to everyone, the Royal Couple also mentioned that Prince George is ready to go to Montessori school now. He will be attending Westacre Montessori School Nursery in Norfolk, towards the end of January. The school is said to be close to where the Duke works as an air ambulance pilot and also near to their family’s home on the Sandringham Estate.
It is reported that the fees of the school per day would be just $49. This indicates that the Duke and the Duchess are intending to give as much normal upbringing as possible to their children. The sum charged in the school is far low than those that are charged next to Kensington Palace, which reportedly charges almost double the amount. The Duke had also reportedly attended Montessori in 1986, which charged $850 a year. The school, which is more than 30 years old takes special care of the kids and see to it that they achieve overall development. It initially started with just five students and has expanded over the years.
With privacy being of primary importance for the Royal Couple, the school is taking some extra effort in proving the Royal Family the same. They have recently deactivated their much active Twitter account, a step towards maintaining the privacy of the Royal Couple. The nursery has a outdoor play area, a computer, a garden, and also encourages healthy eating.
The children are encouraged to participate in all sorts of activity. We are looking forward to see the little Prince starting his school. Stay tuned for more update on this.
