Prince George and Princess Charlotte’s school is understandably a cut above the rest. With fees coming to a whopping £18,915 a year, it is clear that their experience can’t be the same as any normal school.
And those ideas extend to everything from the huge number of extracurricular clubs on offer to the school lunch menu.
While many school-age pupils in the UK are served everything from square pizza to fish fingers and from rice pudding to sponge and custard, the same cannot be said for Prince George and Princess Charlotte’s school.
The eldest children of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge attend Thomas’s School in Battersea and are in Years Four and Two.
The royal children study a dizzying number of subjects at school but they are largely the same as any other child their age including literacy, numeracy, science, history and geography, the School website said.
So after all that hard work, the children will surely have worked up an appetite and be ready for lunch.
Just taking a glance at the three-week menu provided at Thomas’s by catering company Radish will send your taste buds into meltdown- and make you regret your sad-looking cheese sarnie.
In week one, the lucky children will get a chance to sample everything from a cheddar and caramelized red onion quiche served with new potatoes to a beef keema which is accompanied by wholemeal pitta- before their sweet tooth is satisfied with a tasty chocolate cookie.
Week two offers up the likes of a Spanish omelette and a Mexican rice wrap, as well as an indulgent cocoa and date brownie for a sweet Friday afternoon treat.
Bringing the three-week rota to a close, the royal children will get to try a vegetable and bean jambalaya, roast chicken served with stuffing, roast potatoes and gravy and the less exciting sounding vanilla sponge with custard.
In terms of what the little royals 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 tell The Express : “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, London 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, which sparked a conversation with the children about their own preference of fruits.”
