"There's a policy that if your child is having a party unless every child in the class is invited you don’t give out the invites in class, which I think is quite a good thing as you don’t feel excluded. There are signs everywhere saying be kind, that’s the ethos of the school. They don’t encourage you to have best friends."

Fans react

Internet users have varied opinions about Princess Charlotte banned from having a best friend. Some agree while others don’t.

“My daughters’ school actually tells them not to call someone their best friend. They want everyone to all to be friends, so they try not to encourage "best" friends, so no one is left out.”

@Sue Garnett disagreed:

“It's part of your childhood to have a best friend...I'm still friends with mine after 50 years.”

@Danny Bear Tebbutt commented:

“That just wrong stopping a kid having best friends I know she royalty but as kid good have friends.”

@Beverley Joy wrote:

“Poor kid ..that's why one of the reasons the Royals are like they are due to not allowed best friends ..grow up to be aloof and snobs! Who in their right mind would do this..the Parents do have a choice don't have to live this life ..just give up title job done.😥”

@Selina Howl urged:

“Can't ban someone from having a best friend, your best friend is a best friend for a reason 🤷‍♀️”
