Joe Little, the managing editor of Majesty magazine, said that having all three children in the same school made perfect sense for the busy brood,

"With the family in Berkshire, the journey will be considerably shorter and easier than the nightmare that was Kensington Palace to Battersea twice a day," he said. "It also means that the cost of security, always a contentious topic, is much lower than if Louis was at a different school to his siblings."
