Princess Charlotte news: Princess Charlotte and George pose for school picture | Royal | News

Princess Charlotte was said to be “very excited” about her first day of school, her proud father Prince William said as he dropped her off for her first day at school this morning. It was noted she displayed a strong resemblance to her great-grandmother the Queen as she held her mother Kate, the Duchess of Cambridge’s hand. The four-year-old looked a little scared at first as she was led into the grounds of Thomas’s Battersea.

Her father, the Duke of Cambridge, walked next to his wife and daughter while holding Prince George’s hand.

William had driven his family to the school in south London and parked the family Land Rover Discovery in an internal car park.

They headed to a side entrance where Helen Haslem, head of the lower school, was waiting to greet them.

The duchess smiled and asked: “How are you? Did you have a nice summer?”, and Ms Haslem bent down to shake George’s hand and then Charlotte’s.

William beamed and said: “First day – she’s very excited.”

Charlotte wore the school’s transitional uniform, which is a dark dress and cardigan with a blouse, white socks and shoes.

She had her hair in a practical ponytail, which she kept adjusting, fixed with a bow.

Her mother carried her satchel which had a key-ring in the shape of a pony’s head attached to it.

William and Kate get a slight reduction in fees for Charlotte’s education this school year as George is already a pupil at Thomas’s Battersea.

The school charges £19,287 for the first child and £18,915 for the second.

George has been a student for two years at the school.

Kate missed George’s first day in September 2017 as she was suffering with extreme morning sickness while pregnant with Prince Louis.

But today Kate looked relaxed, wearing a summer dress, while her husband wore a jacket, trousers and shirt.

Charlotte joined her other new 21 classmates and then waved her off for the start of her first day.

In his welcome message on the school website, headmaster Simon O’Malley says: “Thomas’s Battersea is a busy, thriving, purposeful school, educating 560 boys and girls between the ages of four and 13.

“As you would expect of any Thomas’s school, the most important school rule is to ‘Be Kind’.

We offer a rich and broad curriculum, with art, ballet, drama, ICT, French, music and PE all taught by specialist teachers from a child’s first day in school.

“We hope that our pupils will leave this school with a strong sense of social responsibility, set on a path to become net contributors to society and to flourish as conscientious and caring citizens of the world.”
