Parents of the other children grumbled about armed police
Kate Middleton and Prince William have faced backlash from other parents at the new school that George, Charlotte and Louis will attend over concerns about their children’s safety.
In September, Kate Middleton and Prince William, along with their heirs, moved from London to Berkshire to live near Windsor Castle, the Queen’s current residence.
The children of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge will be starting a new school in the next few days.
Lambrook headteacher Jonathan Perry said they were delighted to welcome the royal children to their ranks and “look forward to welcoming the family”. However, some parents do not share the enthusiasm of the school management and are worried about the introduction of additional security measures that may complicate the lives of ordinary students.
“Parents are imagining armed police in the trees and in the corridors – they don’t want their children to see them,” complained one worried parent.
“There are no electric gates yet, but that may change with the arrival of the royal children at the school. No one else can come and go so easily. This is definitely not the same school and not at all the relaxed atmosphere we enrolled our children in.
Most parents I’ve talked to feel that way,” said another person familiar with the situation.
