Princess Charlotte will attend her first day of school at Thomas’s Battersea on Thursday September 5.
She will be accompanied by her parents Prince William and Kate as well as her brother Prince George, Kensington Palace has confirmed.
A palace spokesperson confirmed: “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.”
The day will be definitely very special for mom Kate as she was forced to miss out on her son Prince George’s first day of school. But at the time, she was pregnant with Prince Louis, and suffering from acute morning sickness, known as hyperemesis gravidarum.
Dad took Prince George to school instead, with adorable photos showing William carrying his son’s book bag.
Princess Charlotte’s big day will be marked by the release of a selection of official photographs in her school uniform, just like they did for Prince George.
Charlotte, who has been attending Willcocks Nursery in Kensington since January 2018, will begin her first term in Reception. As for her brother, he will re-join his classmates in Year Two.
Just like for anyone else, the first day is always the most stressful, and it will be the same for the little Princess.
She will be meeting with her new teacher and settling into a new classroom on the big day. In her first year, Charlotte will study French, Computing, Art, Music, Drama and Ballet.
Charlotte will also improve her handwriting throughout the whole year, focusing on multiple things such as drawings, writing scribbles and random letters. The Princess and her classmates will also play and explore as well as making “choices and learn to have a go and persevere; be creative and solve problems; form good relationships; be safe, secure and happy,” according to the school’s official website.
After Princess Charlotte’s school choice was announced earlier this year, Simon O’Malley, Headmaster at Thomas’s Battersea, said: “We are delighted that The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge have decided that Princess Charlotte will join her elder brother, Prince George, at Thomas’s Battersea.
“We greatly look forward to welcoming her and all of our new pupils to the school in September.”
