Prince George to learn impressive new skill as he returns to school

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge's eldest children, Prince George and Princess Charlotte, returned to their classrooms at Thomas's Battersea School earlier this month.

Like any other children, George and Charlotte will be getting used to a new curriculum as they're now both in Year 4 and Year 2 – and it looks like the eight-year-old Prince will be learning new language skills.

Thomas's website states: "In the Lower School, pupils have Language and Culture lessons, in which they encounter a range of different languages. Older pupils receive specific language lessons focusing on French and/or Spanish as well as Classics."

And it seems that the royals got a head start from a young age as proud mum Kate previously revealed during an engagement at a farm in Gloucestershire in 2017 that she was trying to teach Charlotte Spanish and said that George can count up to ten in Spanish already.

George, Charlotte, six, and their younger brother, Prince Louis, three, also have their nanny, Maria Teresa Turrion Borrallo, who is from Spain and has no doubt helped the children with their language skills.

Louis started at Willcocks Nursery School in April, following in his sister Charlotte's footsteps. He is expected to join his older siblings at Thomas's in September 2022 after his fourth birthday.

The royal family are quite the linguists, with the Queen able to speak French, having been taught the language from a young age. Meanwhile, the Prince of Wales has spoken a number of languages publicly, including French, German and Welsh. The Duke of Cambridge also impressed his guests when he spoke Swahili during an engagement at Kensington Palace in 2019.
