The young royal is proving to be a popular pupil at Thomas’s Battersea and a royal insider has said “a few” of his peers have accepted invitations to join him at his home for games. George recently returned to his south west London school after the summer holidays to begin Year 2 and was joined by Princess Charlotte who started Reception. The six-year-old seems to have made at least a handful of close friends during his first two years at the private school, some of whom have been lucky enough to hang out with the Queen’s great-grandson at the royal residence.
An insider told The Sun: “It is wonderful for them – and their parents – to go to such a beautiful and historic palace and have the run of the place.
“But it does involve a bit more planning than a normal play date, as everyone visiting the palace has to be security vetted.”
The source said the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are “delighted” their eldest child has settled in well to school and has forged friendships with his classmates.

Kate 37, said his daughter was “very excited to join her big brother” for her first day of school.
The Queen’s great-granddaughter was joined by her parents and elder brother as she trotted into the building.
