Prince George set to leave London this year after celebrating 9th birthday

Royal youngster Prince George could be set for a huge life change as his ninth birthday nears.

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge's eldest son will celebrate his birthday on July 22, and this will mean that the Royal fan-favourite will need to change schools.

And that could mean he will be leaving London.

George currently attends Thomas's School in Battersea, south London, but the Prince could be about to follow in his dad's footsteps and move to a boarding school outside of the capital.

William boarded at Ludgrove School in Berkshire from the age of eight, before attending the famous Eton College, as did his brother Prince Harry, and last year the Daily Mail reported that the Cambridges had been enquiring about schools in Berkshire for their children, as well as suitable nearby residences.

The report suggested that William and Kate raising their family in the capital is not understood to be part of their long-term plans.

However, the newspaper cited sources as stressing that Kensington Palace would remain their London base, and will continue to do so after they become the Prince and Princess of Wales when he becomes heir to the throne.

Prince George and Princess Charlotte, seven, both currently attend Thomas's Battersea, which takes children until they are 13.

Three-year-old Prince Louis attends Willcocks Nursery in Kensington.

It appears as if the youngster is now set to attend Lambrook School in Ascot near Windsor Castle – an hours drive from where he currently attends school.

It's also only a 10 minute drive from Legoland – which would be a lovely after school treat for the growing lad.

While nothing has been confirmed, it is thought that the family have been looking into new schools for the Prince for the last five years, and might now have settled on Lambrook, which charges £7,000 per term.

There's also an added cost of £1,481 per term for boarding.

If all goes well, it is thought that sister Charlotte could also attend there in future, as it takes boys and girls.

The Daily Star has contacted the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge for comment on the matter.
