The Cambridges

Duke and Duchess of Cambridge release image of Prince George and Princess Charlotte in honour of the first day of school

This afternoon, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge released a photo of their two older children, Prince George, 6, and Princess Charlotte, 4, taken at Kensington Palace this morning ahead of leaving for Thomas’s Battersea.

The two siblings are seen with their arms around each other posing on the steps of their Kensington Palace home before heading out for Princess Charlotte’s first day at her new school. She joined her big brother at Thomas’s Battersea where he has been attending since September of 2017.

This morning, the Duke and Duchess took their two children to school for the first day. Charlotte, who is usually very outgoing, appeared a bit shy as the cameras flashed away as the family walked up to the school. She was seen hiding behind her mother as they went to greet Helen Haslam, head of the Lower School before going inside the school.

Princess Charlotte had been attending Willcocks Nursery School but like every child in England, she is making the move to primary education in the school year in which she turns five.

No doubt, in just a few years, we will see little brother, Prince Louis join Charlotte and George at the school.
