He may only be in his third year of school, but Prince George is already proving a popular pupil among his peers.
The third in line to the throne, six, is attending £18,000-a-year school St Thomas’s Battersea, and returned to school after the summer holidays this month.
And according to insiders the young royal has already invited ‘a few’ of his classmates back to Kensington Palace, with his parents Prince William, 37, and Kate Middleton, 37, said to be ‘delighted’ at how well he is settling in.
However the ‘wonderful’ play dates at the palace are reportedly more complicated than the average, as every visitor has to be security vetted.
A source described to The Sun how George is ‘just like any other normal child’, adding: ‘It’s just that most schoolkids don’t go somewhere like Kensington Palace to see their friends out of lessons.
