Prince George and Princess Charlotte ‘aren’t allowed best friends at school’

Prince George and Princess Charlotte aren't allowed best friends at school, according to reports.

Although Kate Middleton and Prince William swear the kids are just like everyone else, it's hard to imagine as they are royalty.

However, attending Thomas's Battersea School, the Cambridge kids are reportedly treated like everyone else in the school now that the initial excitement of their presence is over, the Mirror Online reports.

George, in Year 2, and Charlotte, in Reception, starting the school last September are not allowed to have a "best friend," and this is not because they are treated different.

In fact, this is in line with the school's rules.

Journalist Jane Moore spoke about the school on Loose Women, explaining why Charlotte won't be allowed to have a best friend at the school.

She said: "It's a really great little school actually for the reasons I think that it really focuses on kindness, it's a really big thing in that school and the pastoral care is amazing.

"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, which I think is quite a good thing as you don’t feel excluded.

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

Thomas's offered a wide and varied curriculum which is focused on seven key areas of learning.

They include personal, social and emotional development, communication and language, physical development, literacy, maths, understanding the world, and art and design.

The school's website states: "We believe that the Early Years Foundation Stage is fundamental in instilling positive dispositions towards learning.

"In the Reception year children will play and explore; make choices and learn to have a go and persevere; be creative and solve problems; form good relationships; be safe, secure and happy.

"A stimulating environment, including a multi-sensory outdoor play area, supports the teachers’ planned activities and the children’s own initiatives for learning."

As well as the traditional subjects, George and Charlotte will learn ballet, French and ICT.

Students also learn about things like healthy eating during their first year at the school.
