The school charges fees of £3,050 per term for children attending what it calls morning school for 32 youngsters, aged almost three to five years old, who are in class five days a week for three hours.

Charlotte may be enrolled in the afternoon school, which has fees of £1,800 per term and is less structured than the morning session but provides a similar wide range of activities including art and music.

The royal couple have also released a new family photograph of themselves and their children - which will feature on their Christmas card.

The photograph shows the duke with his son, Prince George, standing immediately in front of him, while Charlotte stands with her mother.
