"They’ve been doing their research on local schools for the last year," Teddy Wolstenholme, editorial director of Talk Education and a former editor of the Tatler Schools Guide, told The Times. "One pupil at Lambrook was asked by the cheery future king how he’d rate Latin. And when Kate was looking round another school, Papplewick, a pupil told her that she looked just like the Duchess of Cambridge."

Meanwhile, one local predicted "the children [will] go to St Andrew’s, Pangbourne, where Kate went."

"True, it’s half an hour’s drive from Windsor, but they’re used to a long school run in London. It’s leafy, with a big sweeping driveway, a brand new sports hall and beautiful indoor swimming pool. And you have the option of being a day pupil or boarding," they added.

At the moment, Prince George, 8, and Princess Charlotte, 6, attend Thomas's Battersea, and Kate, 40, and William, 39, supposedly want to keep them together.

It's been rumored that Prince William would send his eldest son to his alma mater Eton, but it seems like the royal doesn't want his kid away from home.

"It's my understanding for some time, possibly even before George was even born, that William was quite keen that any child he had wouldn't be packed off to boarding school," royal author Duncan Larcombe said. "Eton for William and Harry wasn't an unhappy time, apart from the fact it was when their mother died, which means William doesn't blame the school or the experience of boarding."

Meanwhile, it's also possible the pair may move to Windsor.

"It might be several reasons they'd want to move. One to help the Queen. Two, to be near Kate's parents and three, If Prince George goes to Eton, they'll be close to the school," Susan Logue said on Us Weekly's "Royally Us" podcast. "I can actually see them moving to Windsor or onto the property somewhere close to the Castle."

"There’s a whole school-run yummy mummy scene round here. They all wear Sweaty Betty or Lululemon and drive navy Volvo XC90s with personalized number plates," a local in Pangbourne said. "If the kids went to St Andrew’s, Kate could go to the Pantry in Yattendon after school drop-off, where they do the best toasties and amazing cakes, or the Blackbird Cafe in Chapel Row, where the quinoa salads and cappuccinos are great."
