However, a report in The Sunday Times says the royals ideally want to send the children back to school together.

Prince George is in year two, and his official return date to class remains unknown.

The report states: "The Cambridges are keen to send George and Charlotte back at the same time and if year 2 children are permitted to return, it is thought both siblings will do so."

Kate has previously opened up about the home schooling experience.

Energetic kids

She said: "The children have got such stamina.

"You pitch a tent, take the tent down again, cook, bake.

"You get to the end of the day—they've had a lovely time, but it's amazing how much you can cram into a day, that's for sure."

She even said she'd made the kids study throughout their Easter holidays.

And Prince George is apparently rather jealous of Charlotte's more "fun" schoolwork.

Kate continued: "George gets very upset because he just wants to do all of Charlotte's projects. Spider sandwiches are far cooler than literacy work."

As for their youngest child, Prince Louis, at two years old he is still too young for schoolwork.
