Princess Charlotte Looks So Big In New Nursery School Photos

Posted January 09, 2018

Kensington Palace has released two images of Princess Charlotte as she begins her first day at nursery school.

Princess Charlotte is all grown up! Despite her young age, Charlotte is already settling into a lifetime of royal duties.

The daughter of Prince William and his wife, the former Kate Middleton, turns 3 in May.

In September, Charlotte's older brother, Prince George, started at Thomas's Battersea, a fee-paying independent school in south London.

It is not the first time that pregnant Kate, 36 on Tuesday, has taken official photographs herself. The youngest royal, and fourth in line to the British throne, has officially started school. Pupils are split into four learning groups named after birds: Swifts, Swallows, Cygnets and Swans.

On its website the school, rated as "outstanding" by government inspectors, describes itself as traditional, saying it "strives to maintain its ethos for high standards, excellence and good manners".

Charlotte will be full-time at Willcocks, at a cost of more than $AUD5000 per week.

Daily lessons are themed around topics such as archaeology and the environment.

But it won't be all clay-pot making for Charlotte: she'll have to tidy away dress ups and put out milk for her classmates.

The little girl looked so cute in her dark red coat, pink scarf and red Mary Janes as she went to the Willcocks Nursery School, a private school in West London.

"We look forward to welcoming Charlotte to our nursery".
