Princess Charlotte attends her first day of school

The second child of Kate Middleton and Prince William starts her first day of school with her brother, Prince George in hand.

In a big milestone moment, four-year-old Princess Charlotte walked into her first day of kindergarten at the prestigious St Thomas’s in Battersea in south London. 

Walking hand in hand with her mother, the Duchess of Cambridge, her brother George, and her dad, Prince William, the Princess entered the school gates to be greeted by the head mistress.

In the video the Kensington Royal instragram shared, the young princess is seen hiding behind her mother's hand as walk through the gates, but eagerly moves in front as she extends her hand to greet the head mistresss.

Seemingly shy, but excited in her navy uniform, she also stayed close to her older brother who has been at the school for the past two years already.

To mark the special occasion, the Kensington Royal instagram account also shared a photo of the two young royals, with the post explaining:

"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 photo was taken shortly before Their Royal Highnesses left for Thomas's Battersea."

Although the four-year-old may seem timid at first, she's become quite accustomed to greeting new people and has been described as having an outgoing personality - being dubbed cheeky child of the Cambridge family.

There's no doubt that with the support of her brother, Princess Charlotte will excel at her new school.
