This the (expensive) uniform Prince George will wear to his ‘big school’

Well, the school is €20K a year.

He’s about to start ‘big school’ – attending Thomas’s Battersea School in London… where fees cost close-to an eye-watering €20,000 a year.

And Prince George’s parents will have to fork out a pretty penny for his uniform too (presumably they’ll find the cash).

In fact, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge will cough up at least €400 alone for their eldest son’s school attire.

Over the course of the year, little George, aged four, will don the likes of a winter navy jacket, a red polo neck, regulation socks, and even a red art smock.
