Adorable Archie shares his special day with another important royal event on 6 May – his grandfather King Charles’ coronation at Westminster Abbey in London.
However, we know that Archie will spend his birthday with his mother Meghan and sister, Princess Lilibet, in California where they live, while his father attends the coronation.
When does Prince Archie start school?
In England, turning four is a significant moment as it marks the beginning of a child’s school life.
Children begin compulsory full-time education in September after their fourth birthday, so if Archie was living in England as he did previously, he would start in reception class this September.
In California, school starts at a later age for children. From age five, kids may enter kindergarten class at elementary school, although full-time school is not compulsory until they turn six.
We know that Archie currently attends a preschool near his home in Montecito, therefore it’s likely the royal tot will continue going there for the next year until he turns five and is ready for kindergarten.
In August 2022, Meghan spoke with The Cut about her family life, with the writer, Allison P. Davis, accompanying the royal mother to collect Archie from his preschool.
Allison observed how Archie was excited to see his mother at pick-up time, repeating “Momma, Momma, Momma”, then they greeted each other with a big hug. She also revealed that Archie is ready for full days at his preschool, citing an update letter from his teacher.
