Prince George Saves Primary School from Closure

LONDON – Pupils at a primary school in a small English village have Prince George to thank for seeing that their classrooms stayed open despite being threatened with closure over budget issues.

The Daily Telegraph reported on Friday that 11 primary pupils of the Chirton village school in Wiltshire wrote a letter to Prince George, telling him how much they love their school and even invited the 15-month-old royal to enroll there.

The infant son of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, who is third in line to the British throne, did not reply, but royal representatives wrote back to the children on his behalf expressing support.

“Staff and children were shocked to get a letter back saying how impressed the royal couple were with the school,” the newspaper reported.

In 2012, the school was down to 12 pupils, and the following year only four more pupils enrolled, placing it under threat of closure. But after the princely appeal, the school received several more enrollment requests, doubling the number of two years earlier.
