Princess Charlotte enjoys royal sendoff on her first day of school
Princess Charlotte got the ultimate royal sendoff for her first day of school.
The tiny royal, 4, and her older brother George, 6, arrived in uniform for their first day at Thomas’s Battersea in London Thursday, according to People. The siblings were accompanied by their dapper parents, Prince William and Kate Middleton, who looked thrilled despite the private school’s hefty annual price tag of $23,000.
An initially shy Charlotte eventually offered a wave to waiting photographers before disappearing inside with her family and Helen Haslem, head of Lower School.
The tot will spend her “reception year” in a class of 21. The school says this year is meant for students to “play and explore, make choices and learn to have a go and persevere; be creative and solve problems; form good relationships; be safe, secure and happy.”
Thursday was particularly special for the foursome as Middleton was forced to miss George’s first day of school in 2017, due to the severe morning sickness she suffered when carrying her third child, Prince Louis.
Late last month, George’s “Year 2” curriculum, which includes ballet, was the subject of controversy when “Good Morning America” co-anchor Lara Spencer admittedly “screwed up” by mocking George’s reported love of the dance form.
