  • Prince George and Princess Charlotte might find a few treats in their backpacks as they start school again in the new year.

    The little royals will both be attending school for the first time this month, as Charlotte starts nursery and George returns to Thomas’ Battersea for the second term.

    Charlotte’s new school, Willcocks, began its Spring term last Thursday, but while it hasn’t been confirmed if the princess has had first day yet, we may have got a glimpse of what William and Kate might pack in her bag thanks to Buckingham Palace shop.

    Charlotte is starting nursery this month

    The palace shop contacted customers to promote their Back to School range, on the same day that Charlotte’s nursery started, and included a special section for children’s ‘first day of nursery’.

    ‘Whether they’re a toddler starting nursery, a little one heading back to school, or a college student, we have luxury stationery essentials for everyone’, the promotional message read, according to The Telegraph.

    ‘Fill their satchel with leather journals, colourful notebooks and other accessories inspired by the royal palaces, to set the benchmark for excellence.’

    The marketing material also specifically targetted children starting nursery: ‘Tuck these charming gifts into backpacks, as you wave off the little ones to their first day at nursery.’

    Some of the suggestions include a ‘dress up crown, gold and shining with red velvet and soft fake fur trim’, which costs £8.95, or a Guardsman teddy bear that can be bought for £17.95, and a corgi pencil set, that alludes to the Queen’s famous pets.

    Kate and William announced Princess Charlotte would be starting nursery in January last month, as they released a new family portrait for Christmas.

    ‘Their Royal Highnesses have also announced this morning that Princess Charlotte will attend the Willcocks Nursery School in London from January 2018’, the announcement read.
