Prince George melted hearts two years ago when he was pictured arriving at Thomas’s Battersea for his first day at school.
This week, Princess Charlotte followed in Prince George’s steps as she started her first day at Thomas's Battersea School.
Kate Middleton and Prince William joined the little royal for her first day, dropping her off with Prince George – who started year two.
Charlotte looked shy as she arrived at the school, wearing her navy and red school uniform and holding tightly onto Kate's hand.
As Princess Charlotte starts school, we take a look back at Prince George's first dat at Thomas's Battersea:
On 7th September 2017, Prince George arrived at Thomas’s Battersea for his first day of reception.
Prince William accompanied his son, while Kate Middleton was forced to stay at home due to severe morning sickness during her pregnancy with Prince Louis.
The Duke of Cambridge carried George’s school bag as the approached the school, with a very shy looking George appearing nervous.
The pair were met by Helen Haslem, the head of lower school at Thomas’s Battersea.
Prince George – dressed in the school uniform – shook Helen’s hand as William stood close-by before the three of them headed into the school together.
Before entering the school, Prince William and George posed together on the stairs for the cameras.
The pictures became huge news at the time as people gushed over how sweet the little Prince looked.
This week, Prince George looked a lot more confident as he entered year two at the school, while Princess Charlotte looked just as nervous as he did.
The little Princess, like her older brother, will ditch her royal title when at school, and instead will take up the more modest name Charlotte Cambridge.
