Prince George and Princess Charlotte have over 60 after school clubs to choose from | Royal | News
The two royal children have the option to get involved in everything from pottery to hip-hop at St Thomas’s School in Battersea. Touch-typing and inventing are also on the cards for George, 8, and Charlotte, 6.
Prince George will today have his first day in year four, while his younger sibling moves up to start in year two.
St Thomas’s School is known for its exclusivity, with star-studded alumni including model and actress Cara Delevingne, and singer Florence Welch.
A number of the extra-curricular activities on offer to the young royals run throughout the year, such as mindfulness.
Others, are more closely tied to the seasons and will become available to them at different points in the year, like winter sports.
If Prince George and Princess Charlotte relish being active, they have the option to join a number of sports clubs.
These include fencing, judo, hockey, football, table tennis and gymnastics.
The latter may be one which Princess Charlotte picks, after her mother, Kate, revealed that Charlotte has expressed a passion for it.
The Duchess of Cambridge said: “Charlotte is really into gymnastics, she’s doing cartwheels, handstands, everything.”

His father, Prince William, became president of the British Sub-Aqua Club, just as his father, Prince Charles had done.
This was a tradition stretching back even further down the royal line, as Prince Williams’s father, the late Prince Philip also held this position.
For Princess Charlotte’s prospective sporty hobbies, Prince William has previously revealed that she “loves dancing,” according to the Mirror.
If she pursues this, she will have a difficult choice to make at St Thomas’s: they offer ballet, breakdancing and modern dance.
Slightly more obscure extracurricular activities offered at the royals’ school include Mad Scientists experiments, wheel-based pottery and ninja classes.
If none of these piques the interest of the young royals, they may look towards activities such as debating, drama or storytelling to fill their spare time.
Public speaking would certainly be of use to George and Charlotte as they grow up in the public eye.
Whichever activities the Prince and Princess go for, they are sure to be busy outside of school hours.
