Prince William is relieved his kids are back at school.

On Wednesday, while on a visit in Belfast to mark Emergency Services Day, according to Hello! Magazine, the father of three got candid about Prince George and Princess Charlotte returning to Thomas's Battersea.

"I think every parent is breathing a sigh of relief that school has started again," he said. "Five months – it's been wonderful, but it's been a long five months."

Charlotte has entered Year 1 – essentially grade 1 as she's done with the preschool year – while big brother George starts Year 3 – the middle school years.

Though the school hasn't published the new curriculum as they did last year, both Prince George and Princess Charlotte are expected to take core subjects such as maths, English, science, history and geography studies, reports People. Subjects such as French, religious studies, computing, art/design, technology, music, drama and P.E., are also taught at the prestigious London school.

The future king has also come to love ballet and is expected to continue dancing as the new term gets underway, with opportunities to take up soccer, and various other extra-curricular activities in Year 3.
