Prince William was ‘spoilt and difficult’ as a kid prompting Diana to send him to nursery, claims royal author

It even prompted the couple to break from tradition and send William to nursery, claims one royal author

In her 2010 book, William and Harry, Katie Nicholl provided a rare glimpse into the lives of the young royals.

She explained that although Prince Charles and Diana's marriage was in "serious trouble" at the time, they both agreed William should be sent to nursery, as he had become "quite a handful".

“The Queen had expected William to be educated at home, in keeping with tradition, but Diana wanted both her sons to mix with children their own age," said Katie.

“On this occasion Charles was in agreement that William, who could be spoilt and difficult, would benefit from mixing with his peers.”


Apparently, Her Maj had also "noticed that William had become quite a handful".

“It was all part of [Diana's] plan to raise the princes as ordinary boys and show the House of Windsor that it could be done successfully," Katie added.

A three-year-old Prince William started at Mrs Mynors' nursery in Notting Hill on September 24 1985, followed by Harry who was enrolled at the same school two years later.


The Duke of Cambridge's own children have followed suit – Prince George, now aged five, attended Westacre Montessori in Norfolk while three-year-old sister Princess Charlotte, is currently at Willcocks Nursery in Kensington.

According to the Mail On Sunday, Charlotte will follow in George's footsteps and start at Thomas' Battersea primary school in September.

We also revealed how William "riled" Harry after he voiced "concerns" about how quickly his relationship with Meghan Markle progressed.

And we told you how Charles was an "unhappy child" who "lost confidence" and couldn’t "choose his own friends".
