The Prince and Princess of Wales enrolled their children in the independent school Lambrook in Berkshire following their move to Windsor in September.
Earlier this week, the school – which also allows some students to board – gave parents an update on what their children have been getting up to.
Posting on their Instagram page, Lambrook explained how students have been making the most of the on-site orchard.
After taking students on a guided tour to do some apple picking, classes then put their stash to good use by making their own juice and baking cakes.

The post read: ‘Apple pressing, apple collecting and eating, an “apple tree walk”, apple cake, apple juice and the chance to share expertise with younger Year Groups.
‘It was a wonderful celebration of all things apples in our orchard today.’
Lambrook’s on-site orchard is also home to pigs, chickens and rabbits, which are available to cuddle during wellbeing walks.
The exclusive school – which is set within 52 acres of private land and only a 10 minute drive from the family’s new home – also has lambs on site as well as bee hives to encourage students to learn more about the surrounding natural landscape.

On top of this, George, Charlotte and Louis will be able to enjoy activities such as bee-keeping and scuba diving during their time at the Christian prep school, which has also been to known to host Harry Potter evenings.
Lambrook has a Diamond Jubilee performing arts studio, dance studio and sports hall, and a new £6 million Queen’s Building for ICT and academic learning.
The prospectus quoted one parent as saying: ‘It’s the most magical place for our children to spend time, and they can often be seen rosy-cheeked and perfecting handstands, throwing balls or racing to the tree stumps.’
There is school on Saturday mornings followed by an afternoon of sports fixtures for pupils in Year 5 and above which includes nine-year-old George.
Fees cost £4,389 a term for Reception to Year 2 pupils such as Louis, £6,448 per term for Years 3-4 like Charlotte, and £6,999 per term for George through Years 5-8, with an additional £1,481 per term for boarding for Y3-8.

It means William and Kate will be spending in excess of £50,000 a year on their children’s private education.
The bill amounts to £53,508 worth of fees in 2021-2022, not factoring in any potential sibling discount if available, fee increases or the cost of uniform or trips.
Boarding for the older two Cambridge children would cost an additional £8,886 a year if chosen at a later date.
Lambrook was founded in 1860 and two of Queen Victoria’s grandsons, Prince Christian Victor and Prince Albert of Schleswig-Holstein, attended, with Victoria travelling from Windsor Castle to watch them in plays and at cricket matches.
Other famous alumni include the actor Alex Pettyfer, the sons of wartime Prime Minister Herbert Asquith and entrepreneur Giles Clarke, who founded Majestic Wine.
