Prince George has a royal classmate at school – and you’ll know her famous mum too

PRINCE George is currently on his summer holidays from school, but when he returns he’ll be studying alongside another royal pupil.

Maud Windsor – who is the daughter of Lord Freddie Windsor and actress Sophie Winkleman – is in the same class as Prince George, eight, at school.

The two youngsters attend the £17k-a-year Thomas’s Battersea in South London, where George’s sister Charlotte has now also joined.

The kids are likely happy about being paired in the same class, as Sophie previously told HELLO! that her daughter and George “got on very well”.

And they aren’t the only famous kids who have been to the school, as singer Florence Welch, model Cara Delevingne, along with her older sister Poppy and Chloe, also counted among the alumni.

The co-educational school is located in the heart of what is dubbed “nappy valley”, given it is a sought-after location for families.

The school has a theatre, a gymnasium, a ballet room, pottery room, along with two libraries, an Astroturf and a rooftop playground.

Good Schools Guide describes it as “competitive” and chosen by parents who want the “best education money can buy”.

Maud’s dad Lord Freddie’s dad is Prince Michael of Kent, the Queen’s cousin, and Maud’s mum Sophie is also famous too.

Actress Sophie is known for playing Big Suze in Peep Show, and has also appeared in the 2005 version of The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe.

If the name Winkleman sounds familiar, this is because Sophie also has a famous sister – Strictly Come Dancing host Claudia Winkleman.

Just like George’s new cousin Lilibet, Maud was also born in the US – and her name also pays tribute to the Queen.

Maud’s middle name is Elizabeth, in honour of Her Majesty, while Lilibet is the Queen’s nickname.

You may remember Maud from when she was a bridesmaid at her godmother Princess Eugenie and Jack Brooksbank’s wedding in 2018.
