It’s back-to-school season everywhere, and Kensington Palace is no exception. Last year, Kate Middleton and Prince William sent their eldest son, Prince George, off to primary school for the first time. This year, he’s off to what’s called “year one” in England. They grow up so fast!
While George’s first year at Thomas’s Battersea was focused on settling the children into routine, this year he’ll try his hand at all sorts of activities — including one in particular that challenges gender stereotypes.
This school year, the 5-year-old royal will begin ballet lessons, Elle reports. He’ll learn ballet as well as other dance styles, accompanied by a live pianist.
Ballet students “follow the Royal Academy of Dance syllabus and undertake annual examinations,” the school’s website says. “All Extra Ballet pupils dance in our biannual performances.”
Meanwhile, Prince Charlotte will continue on with a favorite hobby of her own.
