Most children across the UK are getting use to a new way of learning after schools reopened this term.
The same can be said for Prince George and Princess Charlotte who returned to the classroom following months of home schooling with royal parents, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge.
George and Charlotte were said to be "thrilled" to be reunited with their teachers and friends at Thomas's Battersea, but there is one thing that may disappoint them, reports the Mirror Online.
The private London school has introduced a number of coronavirus safety measures to ensure pupils and staff are safe and to reduce the chance of the virus spreading.
This means that a number of normal lessons have been cancelled – including swimming.
Writing for Vanity Fair, royal expert Katie Nicholl said: "While Kensington Palace did not release any images of the children’s first day back, George who has moved into Year 3 and Charlotte who is in Year 1 are said to be thrilled to be back at school with their friends, even though some activities such as swimming have been suspended."
It's believed that the royal children love swimming, and throughout half term last year families saw them playing in the pool at the fancy spar near their Norfolk home.
An onlooker claims the Duchess of Cambridge, Kate, looked glamorous in a maroon swimsuit and a full face of makeup. They also said she wore her long brown hair up with a hairclip.
She was at the pool with the eldest children for around half an hour, according to reports, with the kids practising their diving skills.
But there was a tearful moment when George disappeared under the water and Kate rushed to grab him, but it wasn't long before he was playing and enjoying himself again.
One of the other guests told Mail Online: "The children were very well behaved and both were practising their diving from the side.
"Kate was organising little races for them and they did it around four or five times. She said "ready, steady go" and did a downward chopping action in the water to indicate the start of the race."

Thomas's has implemented a number of measures to keep kids and parents safe, but there is one rule the Cambridge family have been exempt from.
Katie explains: "According to one parent, the school has installed numerous Covid-19 prevention measures and parents now have to drop children at the school gates.
"The Cambridges, however, are still able to drive their children into the school grounds."
This is most likely due to security as the family have personal protection officers with them at all times.
Despite Kate and William having a nanny and other staff, the couple are said to be regulars on the school run and are often seen in the playground by other parents.
Like working parents up and down the country, it's said they have arranged work duties to fit around the school pick up and drop off times.
