The members of the royal family are seriously considering distance learning for Prince George and Princess Charlotte amid the pandemic.
Prince George and Princess Charlotte’s school, Thomas’s Battersea, is taking measures to stop the spread of the novel coronavirus.
Efforts are made to keep the students and staff members safe. Shortly after the British government announced that schools across the country will be closing as a precautionary measure, a spokesperson for Thomas’s openly proclaimed that their curriculum will be taught remotely starting on Monday.
“There has been an increase in the numbers of children and staff being absent from school due to the Coronavirus. So we, Thomas’s London Day Schools, have decided to move to remote learning from Monday, 23 March”. This statement was made by a spokesperson from the school according to People. Just so that you know, the Queen of the United Kingdom, Elizabeth was also home schooled, but time was different back then, wasn’t it?
“From 23rd March, the curriculum will be taught online. Lessons will be possible with the help of online learning platforms. We have asked parents to keep their children at home and to access their lessons through this system”. This will ensure that children will continue to learn when they are unable to attend school.

The school will continue to be physically open until March 26, when the term officially ends. It will be to account for “cases where families are not in a position to keep their children at home (like ‘front staff’ in the medical profession)”.
Earlier, many students of the school were reportedly tested for COVID-19. Luckily, the results of those tests were never made public. In totality, there have been 2,626 confirmed positive tests in the UK as of last Wednesday.
Prince George joined Thomas’s Battersea in 2017. His sister Princess Charlotte started school just last September. Duke of Cambridge, Prince William, spoke out about the deadly coronavirus sharing a message of support for all.
“Whenever and wherever adversity strikes, the people of the UK have a fantastic ability to pull together. The way that communities support those affected shows the very best of our values and human nature,” Prince William said.
