The littlest princess, adorable Charlotte, is just a few days away from a very big milestone and we can’t wait to see the photos!
Charlotte’s big day
Charlotte’s due to begin classes at the same school as her big brother, Thomas’s Battersea, on September 5th!
We are keeping our fingers crossed that we’ll see some cute ‘ big school’ snaps pop up on the Kensington Royal social media accounts.
You probably remember the adorable video and photos of Prince George starting school, accompanied by his dad Prince William? George’s mum Duchess Kate was pregnant with Prince Louis at the time and was so unwell with hyperemesis gravidarum that she couldn’t be there for his big day.
There’s hopefully no chance of that with Princess Charlotte’s first day! As far as we know, Kate is not currently pregnant and is feeling in optimal health. We’re guessing that she and William will both be on hand for Charlotte’s big day.
“She can’t wait to be with George at big school,” People magazine reports a royal insider as saying.
“She is so excited about it all.”
George is apparently very keen to show his sister around with the siblings – who are very close in age – firm friends and about to become schoolmates too.
Kate opened up about Charlotte’s first day as she chatted to folks during a tour of Cumbria in June. She told local Helen Jones, that “Charlotte was looking forward to school,” and was “very friendly”, Harper’s Bazaar reports.

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are very pleased to share some new photographs of their family as they visited the RHS Back to Nature Garden at the #ChelseaFlowerShow on Sunday afternoon. The photographs were taken by @mattporteous. The #RHSChelsea Back to Nature Garden, designed by The Duchess and award-winning landscape architects Andrée Davies and Adam White of Davies White Landscape Architects, is a woodland setting for families and communities to come together and connect with nature. Her Royal Highness is a strong advocate for the proven benefits the outdoors has on physical and mental health, and the positive impact that nature and the environment can have on childhood development in particular. Over the past months, Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis have helped The Duchess gather moss, leaves and twigs to help decorate @The_RHS Back to Nature Garden. Hazel sticks collected by the family were also used to make the garden’s den. The Duchess told Monty Don in an interview for the BBC: “I really feel that nature and being interactive outdoors has huge benefits on our physical and mental wellbeing, particularly for young children. I really hope that this woodland that we have created really inspires families, kids and communities to get outside, enjoy nature and the outdoors, and spend quality time together.”
The little princess – who was previously enrolled at Willcocks Nursery School – will be on the class roll as Charlotte Cambridge.
It’s thought that Charlotte and George will head to school feeling very refreshed.
They recently had a holiday on the Caribbean island of Mustique where George celebrated his birthday. They then popped up to the Queen’s Balmoral estate in Scotland to spend some time with their baby cousin Archie and other relatives.
