The private school, which is rated as excellent by Ofsted, is for boys and girls between the ages of three and 13.

Prince Louis' fee is £4,389 per term which totals £13,167 across all three terms. This will remain the same until he hits year three when the costs rise.

The three kids are settling in well

Years three and four are categorised as 'lower school' and come in at £6,448 per term, meaning Princess Charlotte's education will set her parents back £19,344 per year.

Years five to eight are £6,999 per term meaning Prince George will be the most expensive child in school for the Cambridges, totalling £20,997.

It's all change for the family, who have also moved into a new property, Adelaide Cottage, which is near to the children's new school.
