Prince George and Princess Charlotte will take classes from home, as their school, Thomas's Battersea, is switching to remote learning.
Curriculum "will be taught through online learning platforms" starting this Friday, March 20, due to the coronavirus pandemic.
Prince William and Duchess Kate are said to be following the government's advice during this uncertain time.
Prince George and Princess Charlotte, two of Prince William and Duchess Kate's three children, are among the latest students around the world to switch to home learning amid the coronavirus pandemic. Their school, Thomas's Battersea in London, announced that it will switch its classes to remote learning starting Friday, March 20.
"From this date the curriculum will be taught through online learning platforms and we have asked parents to keep their children at home and to access their lessons through this system," a spokesperson from the school said in a statement. "This will ensure that children have continuity of learning when they are unable to attend school."
Thomas's Battersea will remain physically open until the end of term, March 26, for pupils whose families are unable to keep their kids at home, "such as those who are 'front line staff' in the medical profession, for example," the statement added.
As for the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, they're following the advice of the U.K. government and their children's school during these uncertain times, a source close to the couple told People. They didn't make their annual St. Patrick's Day appearance yesterday, though not because of coronavirus; rather, that was because the Irish Guards' first battalion, which usually hosts the royals during the event, was deployed in Iraq and South Sudan.
Earlier this week, Buckingham Palace announced that the royal family is "studying the implications of the new Government advice and its impact on forthcoming events." The queen has already made changes to her schedule, such as heading out to Windsor Castle a week early and postponing a number of public events expected to draw crowds.
