The Prince of Wales will travel alone to Singapore in November for the Earthshot Prize Awards

Prince William is said to be "kicking himself" over his Earthshot Prize Awards clashing with Prince George's exams in November, a royal commentator has claimed.

Princess Kate confirmed she would be staying in the UK to help her eldest son prepare for his exams, leaving the Prince of Wales to travel to Singapore alone.

George's exams will likely decide whether or not he will be accepted into the top ranking Eton College, which is located very near his Windsor home Adelaide Cottage.

A royal commentator has said the Princess of Wales made the "best decision" to remain in the UK.

Jennie Bond said: "I cheered out loud when I learned that Catherine had chosen to stay home with George.

"It’s absolutely the right decision. Official duties will come and go; children need their parents, and they grow up fast.

"There will be more Earthshot events and prizes.

"But this year, George has his own big event going on - exams.

"It is entirely right that his mum should be there to help him through them.

"I expect William is kicking himself that his schedule clashes with George’s exams, but he will be wholly supportive of Catherine staying home to help their son," she told OK!.

Prince George is anticipated to follow in his father's footsteps and enrol at Eton College when he turns 13 in September 2026, however, this has not yet been confirmed.

The young royal was photographed earlier this year with his parents on a tour of the school grounds.

The renowned institution was founded by King Henry VI in 1440 and charges an astounding £48,501 per year.

It includes former members of the Royal Family like Prince William, Prince Harry, the Duke of Kent, Samuel Chatto, and Arthur Chatto.

Eton is renowned for having outstanding facilities, which Prince George will likely enjoy.

There are about 40 football/rugby fields, a two-kilometre rowing lake, 19 cricket fields, and 50 tennis courts.
