Princess Charlotte and Prince George Are Not Allowed to Have Best Friends at School but the Reason Is Surprising

In addition to all the other rules they follow, the kids also have to keep themselves from making best friends at school. But the reason sounds fair.

Royal families around the world have some strict protocols to adhere to when they meet people or travel, though the British monarchy has way more complex and strict protocols as they are the most famous royals of the world. Even the royal kids are not immune to these protocols. One such rule that the little Prince Geroge and Princess Charlotte have to follow could make you think that with royalty comes great restraint.

According to Cosmopolitan, Prince George and Princess Charlotte are not allowed to make best friends in their class! The reason, however, sounds fair.


The siblings go to Thomas’s Battersea school which has a rule that prohibits students from selectively inviting students to parties they hold outside. This is to not be strict but to ensure that no child feels left out or excluded. The teachers also encourage students to be more kind and thoughtful to all their fellow students.

“It’s a really great little school actually for the reasons I think that it really focuses on kindness, it’s a really big thing in that school and the pastoral care is amazing,” British journalist Jane Moore said, according to The Mirror. “There’s a policy that if your child is having a party, unless every child in the class is invited, you don’t give out the invites in class, which I think is quite a good thing as you don’t feel excluded.”

"There are signs everywhere saying be kind, that’s the ethos of the school. They don’t encourage you to have best friends," she added. According to The Mirror, Thomas’s Battersea as a school focusses not just on the curricular development of a student but also makes them emotionally developed. They focus on seven key areas of learning - Personal, social and emotional development, Communication and Language, Physical Development, Literacy, Maths, Understanding the world and art and design.

It should not be surprising, given that both Kate and William are humble and kind themselves and speak a great deal about empathy and inclusion.


The Mirror also reports that while there was an initial excitement over George and Charlotte's attendance, they have now become one among the Thomas's. The kids are second and third in line to the throne but as the bell rings they are just students of their school.


Besides, the kids also have a strict schedule at home which not only ensures that they become well-groomed prince and princess but it also makes sure they are in touch with their natural surroundings.


Considering how kind the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are, George and Charlotte could indeed grow up to be the people's prince and princess.
