Prince William, Princess Kate announce school choice for Prince George

George will turn four in July.

William, 34, and Kate, 35, though chose Thomas's, a coeducation school with tuition of $22,000 per year. The school has approximately 500 students and is located in a middle-class area of London.

Thomas's Battersea includes children from a variety of backgrounds whom George will one day lead when he is king. Parents of current students were briefed ahead of the announcement today.

The school's headmaster, Ben Thomas, also issued a statement welcoming George to Thomas's.

"We are honoured and delighted that Their Royal Highnesses The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge have chosen Thomas's Battersea for Prince George," the statement read. "We greatly look forward to welcoming him and all of our new pupils to the school in September."

George has been attending Westacre, a local Montessori school near the family's country home, Anmer Hall, in Norfolk, a few days per week since January 2016.

William and Kate plan to move their full-time residence to Kensington Palace in the fall as George begins school.
