The decision by the Prince and Princess of Wales reportedly follows a precedent set by Prince William’s mother, Princess Diana.
Princess Kate and Prince William have been praised for putting an end to an unusual way of raising royal children.
The pair have reportedly decided to take a different, more hands-on, approach to raising their son and future king, Prince George, as well as their two other children Princess Charlotte, eight, and Prince Louis, five.
In the past, princes and princesses were raised in large part by governesses who educated them whilst their parents were working.
In contrast to Queen Elizabeth II and King Charles, Prince George’s parents will be far more involved.
The reason for this is Prince William and Princess Kate allegedly want to get the foundations of their relationship with their three children right.

Speaking to PEOPLE, a friend said the couple “consciously set out to achieve a sense of normality”.
The friend added: “Royal families over the generations haven’t had the chance to get those foundations right, but they have.”
The decision by the Prince and Princess of Wales reportedly follows a precedent set by Prince William’s mother, Princess Diana who brought him on tour with her when he was just a baby – something that was far from the norm.
Speaking about the visit, author Jane Connors said: “Bringing William was what made it really different. There was a huge amount made of Diana being a breath of fresh air and [so] modern. It was enormous.”
Prince William is following a precedent set by his mother
The move has also been seen as a way to make sure Prince George can have a calmer childhood than his father.
Prince William’s parents famously divorced when he was 14, making him and Prince Harry the subject of a wave of undesired press attention.
What it also meant was that when Prince William broke the mould in 1995 by attending a different school to his father, the press swarmed to where history was being made.
Prince William made royal and educational history when instead of attending Gordonstoun in Scotland, he made his debut at another famous school.
Prince William became the first senior royal to attend Eton
Prince William became the first member of the Royal Family, and the first heir to the throne, to attend Eton College.
Although this was a major change for the Royal Family, Prince William was still following in famous footsteps. Princess Diana’s father and brother had both attended Eton.
Once at Eton, Prince William proved himself both an able athlete and a talented student.
The young prince went on to captain the swimming and house football teams. He also took up water polo and was photographed at work in the kitchen.
Eton was Prince William’s next stop on the educational ladder after studying at Ludgrove School in Berkshire.
Fast-forward a few more years and it is believed that Prince George may also follow his father in attending Eton.
