The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are “very busy” with the home schooling of Prince George and Princess Charlotte at Anmer Hall, a royal expert said.
Prince William, 38, and Kate Middleton, 39, were blocked at their residence in Norfolk with their children, Prince George, seven, and Princess Charlotte, five, as well as their two-year-old son, Prince Louis.
The two oldest children in Cambridge usually attend the prestigious Thomas Battersea, where school fees are up to £ 7,000 per semester.
Royal expert Katie Nicole has now revealed how royal families are determined to keep their children learning practical skills amid the Covid-1

Although the family has the help of their nanny Maria Theresa Turion Baralo, Katie explained that Kate and William are “very engaged” in educating the children at home.
She said both Prince George and Princess Charlotte were “scholarly and love to learn.”
While the royal expert said that children are “quite self-sufficient” when it comes to online learning, the Duke and Duchess want to take their children out into the garden to explore the world outdoors.
She explained that Kate “wants them to get fresh air and be in nature”, and the royal couple “tried to include learning” while on family walks.

She added: “Charlotte is a big fan of spiders and loves to watch and learn about them, so they go spider hunting so she can see them up close and then release them.”
And it’s not just geography lessons that the Duke and Duchess want to teach their children.
The royal expert said Kate “loves to paint” with children and is “not afraid” of her children being “confused”.
William and Kate previously admitted that it was “challenging” for them to teach their three children – who they said had “such endurance.”
Meanwhile, the royal expert said that Princess Charlotte is a “big fan of spiders” and the family often enjoys “spider hunting” during lunch in the garden, rain or lightning coming.
The couple even “continued” during the Easter holidays without telling them, as Kate admitted: “I feel very mean. Kids have such stamina, I don’t know how.
“Honestly, you get to the end of the day and make a list of all the things you’ve done that day.”
She added: “In fact, there is only this structure. And that’s great, there are so many great online tips and fun activities you can do with kids, so it wasn’t all hardcore. “
A source in April said Kate was “leading” the older two’s homework efforts, while organizing a daily game for two-year-old Lewis, while her husband also “rolled up his sleeves” to help.

They added that the duke and duchess found the experience “extremely useful”.
In July, William admitted that his patience had been tested during home schooling and had been struggling to teach mathematics since the second year.
Speaking on BBC Radio 5Live’s Peter Crouch podcast, which was recorded partly via Zoom and partly at Kensington Palace in March, the heir said: “I found it quite testing, I won’t lie trying to get the kids involved , these were interesting for a few months. “
He added: “I learned through home schooling that my patience is much shorter than I thought, that this is probably the biggest eye for me and that my wife has super patience.
Prince William revealed that his patience had been tested during his children’s homework at the first lock and that he had been struggling to teach mathematics since the age of two. He is pictured, right, in September 2019 with Princess Charlotte (left), Kate (second left) and Prince George (second right), while the royal children attended their first school day of the year.
“Basically, we’re a good team session, I go in with the kids and I try to get them to do something, and Catherine comes in when, to be honest, everything goes wrong.
“I have to admit that I’m a little embarrassed by my knowledge of math, I can’t do math from the 2nd year.”
While the Duchess of Cambridge studied mathematics up to level A, William did not deal with this topic from his GCSE in Eaton.
Royal expert Victoria Arbiter said the couple saw the blockade as a “rare gift” as royal children usually “inevitably give up the long-term privilege with their parents”.
She commented that the combination of Kate’s focus on education in her early years and Middleton’s “educational presence,” along with Prince William’s focus on mental well-being and Windsor traditions, would bring the Cambridge children to the best generation that royal individuals have once known. ”
