PRINCE GEORGE and Princess Charlotte attend one of the most expensive primary schools in the country. So what are their school lunches like? Prince George, eight, and Princess Charlotte, six, attend Thomas’s School in Battersea. Their school is understandably a cut above many other schools in the country. With fees coming to a whopping £18,915 a year, it is clear their experience is not the same as any normal school.
This extends to everything from the huge number of extracurricular clubs on offer to the school lunch menu. Many school-age pupils in the UK are served things like pizza, fish fingers, rice pudding, and sponge and custard. But the same cannot be said for Prince George and Princess Charlotte’s school.
The eldest children of Prince William and Kate Middleton are in Years Four and Two.The royal children study the usual school subjects like literacy, numeracy, science, history and geography, according to the school website.
After all that hard work, the children will then have worked up an appetite and be ready for lunch. The three-week menu provided at Thomas’s by catering company Radish is very extensive for a primary school menu.
In week one, George and Charlotte will get a chance to sample a cheddar and caramelized red onion quiche served with new potatoes. Or, they could choose a beef keema, accompanied by some wholemeal pitta bread.
For dessert, they will be treated to a tasty chocolate cookie. Week two offers a Spanish omelette or a Mexican rice wrap. Charlotte and George can then enjoy an indulgent cocoa and date brownie for a sweet treat.
The three-week rota will provide the royal children with vegetable and bean jambalaya, as well as roast chicken served with stuffing, roast potatoes and gravy, and then vanilla sponge with custard.
What do the young children enjoy eating the most? Prince William revealed while he was working with celebrity chef Aldo Zilli at the youth homelessness charity Centrepoint that Prince George’s favourite dish is spaghetti carbonara.
The revelation led chef Aldo to later tell Express.co.uk: “I’m waiting for the call because apparently, his little boy’s favourite is spaghetti carbonara! “So I’m waiting for the call to go and cook for him.”
The Duchess of Cambridge also spoke about her children’s breakfast preferences when she visited the London Early Years Foundation in Stockwell Gardens Nursery last year.
School manager Michelle Samuels explained: “[Kate] mentioned to three of the children that her own children enjoy apples and cereal in the morning. “This sparked a conversation with the children about their own preference of fruits.”
