Duchess Kate revealed all during a previous visit to the Natural History Museum in South Kensington. The royal brought along a pot of homemade honey, and explained it was a blend made by the bees at her countryside home.

She told the kids: "Every time you see a bee; say thank you so much because they make delicious honey."

The children are now enrolled at Lambrook School 

Lambrook School is set within 52 acres of stunning grounds and other amazing features at the school include a 9-hole golf course and an on-site chapel.

Duchess Kate even makes her own honey

The children are not only encouraged academically, but also in their vocational subjects such as performing arts and sports. Every Monday afternoon they have time dedicated to these sorts of activities to help them become well rounded pupils.

There are weekly and flexible boarding options available for students, meaning the Cambridge children could stay at their family home and travel to school each day as they did at their school in London.

After the announcement, Jonathan Perry, Headmaster at Lambrook School, said: "We are delighted that Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis will be joining us this coming September and very much look forward to welcoming the family, as well as all of our new pupils, to our school community.”

Princess Charles has a passion for bees too 

The change in schools comes as the family have relocated out of the UK capital and settled at Adelaide Cottage on the Queen's Windsor estate.
