Revealed: Details of Princess Charlotte’s first day of big school

Princess Charlotte is gearing up to start “big school” next week and we are sure she could not be more excited. 

However, there will be a few key differences from Prince George’s, 6, big day in 2017 to little Charlotte’s. 

When the four-year-old’s big brother first started at Thomas;s Battersea, he walked in with his hand wrapped around his dad’s, Prince William. 

At the time, Duchess Kate was sick with hyperemesis gravidarum while in the early stages of her pregnancy with 16-month-old Prince Louis. At this stage though, it has been announced Princess Charlotte will be dropped off by her mum as well for her very first stay. 

Kensington Palace shared the exciting new details of the little royal’s big day, including that both the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge will be there to comfort their only daughter’s first day jitters. 

"Princess Charlotte, accompanied by The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and Prince George, will attend her first day of school at Thomas's Battersea on Thursday 5th September," they said in a statement.

It was noted only one photographer and one camera person would be permitted to capture snaps of the royal’s big day, just as it was allowed for Prince George. 

Reports suggest we may get a few portraits of the royal in a happy, cheeky mood - unlike her brother was on her first day as she is “so excited” to follow in his footsteps. 

"She can't wait to be with George at big school," a royal insider told People Magazine. 

"They are close in age, and they spend so much time together."

Princess Charlotte started Willcocks nursery School in January 2018.
