I cheered that Kate will stay home to help George – its the right decision

It was revealed last week that the Princess of Wales will not travel with Prince William to Singapore in November for the third annual Earthshot Prize Awards ceremony.

Instead, the devoted mother-of-three will stay at home in Windsor and support Prince George, 10, through his school exams – those of which will decide if he enters a top-ranking school such as Eton College.

Despite some initial sadness that the Princess will not be in attendance at the awards ceremony, after she showed her support during the first year in London and the second in Boston, a leading royal expert has heralded the move as the "best decision".

Speaking exclusively to OK!, former BBC royal correspondent Jennie Bond said of the news: "I cheered out loud when I learned that Catherine had chosen to stay home with George. It’s absolutely the right decision.

"Official duties will come and go; children need their parents, and they grow up fast. There will be more Earthshot events and prizes. But this year, George has his own big event going on – exams.

"It is entirely right that his mum should be there to help him through them. I expect William is kicking himself that his schedule clashes with George’s exams, but he will be wholly supportive of Catherine staying home to help their son."

While nothing is confirmed, Prince George is expected to follow in his father's footsteps and attend Eton College in September 2026 when he has turned 13. The young royal was pictured touring the grounds with his parents earlier this year.

The famous school charges an incredible £48,501 a year and was set up by King Henry VI in 1440. It counts royal alumni such as Prince William, Prince Harry, the Duke of Kent, as well as Samuel and Arthur Chatto.

Eton is famous for their incredible facilities as it has anything their students could possibly want. In terms of sports, there are approximately 40 football/rugby pitches, a 2km rowing lake, 19 cricket pitches and 50 tennis courts.

Another possible option for the young royal's schooling after he leaves Lambrook would be to tread in his mum's path and study at Marlborough College in Wiltshire.

This may be a desirable option for Kate and William as it is a co-educational school which would allow Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis to all be educated together.

Marlborough college charges their students £39,930 a year and is widely considered one of the UK’s top boarding schools with their state-of-the-art sports facilities and grounds.

The historic school has produced many notable alumni, from Princess Eugenie to comedian Jack Whitehall and even Emerald Fennell – the Academy Award Winning screenwriter and actress who portrayed Queen Camilla in seasons three and four of Netflix's The Crown.
