12 of the cutest photos of royals on their first day of school

With Princess Charlotte starting school this week, we take a look back at other royals looking adorable on their first days.

Princess Charlotte is starting her first day of school this week, where she'll be joining her elder brother Prince George at Thomas's Battersea, who has attended since 2017.
The four-year-old is reportedly incredibly excited to join her six-year-old brother, with a close source recently telling People, that she "can't wait to be with George at big school.
"She's so excited about it. They are close in age, and they spend so much time together," the insider reveals.
"Playdates [with outsiders] can be tricky, so they learn to lean on each other."
While the Duchess of Cambridge was unable to attend Prince George's first day at school due to suffering from severe morning sickness, known as hyperemesis gravidarum, while pregnant with Prince Louis, she'll be sure to join her two eldest children as they head to school this year.
In celebration of Princess Charlotte's milestone of starting school, we take a look back at 12 times other members of the royal family have been snapped on their first days at new schools, from her elder brother Prince George, to her father and even grandfather, Charles, Prince of Wales!
