You know it's officially back-to-school season when the world is #blessed with pictures of Prince George and Princess Charlotte heading to their first day of school. This year, the royal siblings are both attending Thomas's Battersea in London, where George, 6, has been attending since September 2017. Charlotte, 4, will join her brother for the first time after attending Willcocks Nursery School.
This is a big moment for the entire Cambridge family—Kate had to miss George's first day at Thomas Battersea in 2017 due to morning sickness while she was pregnant with Prince Louis. Instead, we saw pics of Will, George, and his school teacher walking together into the school. George didn't look too thrilled back then.
This year he proudly led the way, ready to help his little sister with the school's tough curriculum and show her the ropes.
Charlotte, usually affably waving to the cameras, looked a bit shy, as any 4-year-old would on her first day of school, holding tightly to her mom's hand, and even hiding behind Kate's arm at one point.
The little princess brightened right up upon meeting the school's lovely staff, happily shaking the hand of Helen Haslem, head of the lower school.
Pretty soon both of the eldest Cambridge children were gamely hamming it up for the cameras, as they so often do.
Kensington Palace even posted an adorable video of the important morning. Both parents were beaming as they escorted their children hand-in-hand.
And there's also this delightful photo of the family (minus Prince Louis!):
So cute! Happy first day of school, George and Charlotte.
