Prince George and Princess Charlotte will now officially be homeschooled as the coronavirus pandemic continues.
The royal children, who usually attend Thomas's Battersea in London, are no longer attending the school amid health and safety concerns in this high time of virus outbreak.
But that doesn't mean they won't be able to interact with their fellow students and teachers.

Confirmed by a spokesperson from the school, it is understood the children will begin remote learning alongside their other classmates.
"Due to the increasing number of children and staff absent from school because of the coronavirus pandemic, Thomas's London Day Schools have decided to move to remote learning from Friday 20 March," the statement read.
The spokesperson explained that parents could access the online learning platforms and ensure their children can undertake lessons via the system.
"This will ensure that children have continuity of learning when they are unable to attend school."

Prince George, six, is currently in year two at the school, while Princess Charlotte, four, began her first year there in September 2019.
The pair enjoy attending the school immensely, as per various reports - Prince George is reportedly known as P.G. in an affectionate nickname paying tribute to his regal initials - George Cambridge.
According to a report from Vanity Fair, the young royal is "very popular and has lots of friends, and there's very little fuss made about who he is."

It is likely the Cambridge family are currently laying low at their country residence of Anmer Hall, which is based in Norfolk, north-east of London.
Over the weekend, one surprised grocery shopper bumped into the royal children and mum Duchess Catherine as she visited a Sainsbury's to stock up.
Musing about the run-in on Twitter, the shopper wrote: "They asked me not to take photos. I almost died. And I also told the security that It was me who made the doll [presented to Charlotte at Christmas]. I understand your scepticism but I promise you it happened. Xx".

The Duke and Duchess have no immediate royal events on the calendar for the foreseeable future as the world reacts to COVID-19.
With their children now confirmed to be safely staying in too, it's likely they'll continue to keep a low profile while the pandemic continues.
And rightly so, we hope they continue to stay well!
