All Grown Up! Princess Charlotte Arrives For Her First Day of Big School

My oh my, where has the time gone? We can’t believe four-year-old Princess Charlotte is starting her first day of school already!

But indeed she is, and we’ve got the adorable photos as our favourite cheeky Royal makes this big transition into big school!

With a perfectly pressed uniform, a neat ponytail and a wide smile, Princess Charlotte is ready to rock her first day! Sure, she may look a little nervous as she plays with her ponytail, but she’s got big bro, Prince George, and both mum and dad, Prince William and Kate Middleton, by her side. What a perfect little family!

Charlotte’s New School (and Name) 

While six-year-old George is returning to school, this is the very first day of big school for Princess Charlotte. She will be attending the same school as her brother – Thomas’s Battersea – and will be known as Charlotte Cambridge. How cute is that??!

With 560 students aged from four to 13-years-old, the ethos at Charlotte’s new school, Thomas’s Battersea is “be kind”. Plus, with a whole host of study options including Ballet, French, Drama and Art, Charlotte is sure to flourish and find her feet in no time.

Smile for the Camera!

Like any other proud parents, The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge took a few photos of Prince George and Princess Charlotte at home in their school uniform before leaving for Thomas’s Battersea.

They even managed to snap a perfect sibling shot of the smiling pair, cuddling one another and not fighting. I didn’t even know these types of sibling shots existed!

Big School, Big Day Nerves 

As the foursome headed off to big school, leaving the littlest royal, Prince Louis, at home – the cameras were ready to capture the action!

Sticking close to mum, Princess Charlotte greets the head of the lower school, Helen Haslem. The Kensington Palace Instagram account marked the occasion by posting a few gorgeous first-day-of-school photos, and a video of her meeting Mrs Haslem.

My, Have You Grown!

It literally seems like only yesterday Charlotte arrived earthside and the world went wild with happiness. But, nope, this was four (five years ago in May!). Have a look at some of our favourite moments in Charlotte’s very exciting life (so far).

A Princess is Born!

Isn’t she such a beautiful little girl! Congratulations to the Princess on her big day. If you love the Royals as much as we do, have a look at some of our previous Royal posts:

A former Sydneysider, she turned her ideas of a sea change into reality and now lives with her family in beautiful South-West WA. A lover of yoga and travel, like most mums, she’s on a quest to create a better work-life balance. When she’s not pulling socks out from behind the sofa or sponging little hand prints off the walls, she’s in the kitchen trying to dream up exciting lunch box ideas for her three cheeky monkeys.
