George and Charlotte are set to enjoy an extra day off from school on Friday, meaning they will get to spend more time with their parents. According to Hello!, the children’s school, Thomas’s Battersea school in south-west London, has announced on its website that children do not have to attend on Friday November 27.
However, the reason why the young royals will enjoy a long weekend this week is unknown.
The children will also get to play with their younger brother, Louis, with who they crafted a special anniversary card for their grandparents, the Queen and Prince Philip, last week.
A photograph shared on social media showed the Duke of Edinburgh and the Queen beaming over the special gift for their 73rd wedding anniversary.
The snap was published on Thursday night ahead of the anniversary on Friday.
It was taken by Chris Jackson from Getty Images, and also reveals a number of other anniversary cards and letters on a nearby table.
The Queen married Prince Philip Mountbatten at Westminster Abbey on November 20, 1947.
The children’ unexpected holiday comes after eagle-eyed royal fans noticed that Princes Charlotte was missing from a range of family photos visible during the Duchess’ latest video engagement.
Kate’s latest virtual appearance showed a sitting area with a sofa and a selection of family photos featuring behind her.
The clip was to plug the results of Kate’s early years learning survey that she lead earlier this year.
Speaking to the camera, Kate described 2020 as a “hugely challenging year.”
Kate said: “Earlier this year, we asked you give big questions about raising our under-fives.
“We wanted to hear what you think about the importance of the earliest years of our children’s lives. More than half a million of you answered that call.”
