Princess Charlotte, 4, has just started school at the prestigious St. Thomas’s Battersea in south-west London yesterday! The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge took to their official Kensington Palace instagram account ‘kensingtonroyal’ to post a picture of a very excited little Charlotte in school uniform captioned “Princess Charlotte arrives for her first day of school at Thomas’s Battersea, joining her older brother Prince George”, followed by video footage of the royal family being greeted by the head of the lower school, Helen Haslem, and a portrait of Charlotte and George taken before they left for school, captioned “The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are very pleased to share a photograph of Prince George and Princess Charlotte at Kensington Palace this morning.”
The Royals also took to their twitter to share news of the special day

Thomas’s Battersea is a school of around 560 pupils between the ages of four and thirteen. Charlotte has spent the last 18 months at Willcocks Nursery School, and is now thrilled to be joining big brother George at Thomas’s. An insider has told the Daily Mail that “George is excited and proud to be showing her around”. Charlotte will be addressed as Charlotte Cambridge by staff and school friends, as most Royal Family members get their surnames from their parents’ title.
Just in case you were wondering, Charlotte won’t be compromising on the literal royal treatment she is used to in her home, as her new school’s canteen will be serving up posh dinners on the daily including lamb ragout and baked mackerel, as The Sun reports. A source told Fabulous Digital “The Thomas’s school lunches are the envy of the parents, their school chefs are first class. French onion soups, salmon dishes with dauphinoise potatoes plus an array of amazing puddings are the daily fare.Snacks are fruit and vegetables which are sourced daily. No sugar loading is permitted. Pupils from other London schools love eating after matches with Thomas’s in the spacious dining room as their food is so tasty and appetising.” Not too shabby.
