- Princess Charlotte is having a big day today, as she joins brother Prince George at Thomas’s Battersea.
- The cute royal duo was photographed before heading to school alongside the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge.
- This follows royal news that revealed what name Princess Charlotte will use at her new school.
The little princess looked adorable as she entered her new school for her first day alongside brother Prince George, and her parents, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge.
Probably slightly nervous – as most kids are on their first day – Charlotte seemed a bit shy and hid behind her mum, who looked flawless in a flowery dress.
Kensington Royal also posted a lovely video of the family entering the school, and it’s impossible not to crack up at Prince George’s funny faces.
Clearly excited to show his little sister around the school, the little Prince showed off his cheeky side by sticking his tongue through his tooth gap.
Despite her shyness, the little royal looked happy to be starting this exciting news chapter, and she’s reportedly been buzzing about it for a while.
An insider told PEOPLE magazine.: ‘She can’t wait to be with George at big school. She is so excited about it all.
‘They are close in age, and they spend so much time together. Playdates [with outsiders] can be tricky, so they learn to lean on each other.’
Princess Charlotte’s first day has been slightly different to how her big brother’s went two years ago, as one very special person couldn’t be present.

Kensington Palace confirmed that Princess Charlotte would be attending Thomas’s Battersea back in May.
Simon O’Malley, Headmaster at Thomas’s Battersea, also released an official statement at the time: ‘We are delighted that The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge have decided that Princess Charlotte will join her elder brother, Prince George, at Thomas’s Battersea.
We greatly look forward to welcoming her and all of our new pupils to the school in September.’
Before joining her big brother, the four-year-old had been attending Willocks Nursery School, which is located near Kensington Palace.
