Princess Charlotte will arrive at Thomas's Battersea this week as she starts reception school.
Kensington Palace confirmed last week that the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge will join Charlotte and Prince George at the school, on Thursday 5th September, as they drop them off on their first day.
The couple also revealed that photos of the specialmoment will be released on the same day.
Simon O'Malley, the Headmaster at Thomas's Battersea, said they were “delighted” to have the little royal joining their school.
In a statement, he said: "We are delighted that the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge have decided that Princess Charlotte will join her elder brother, Prince George, at Thomas's Battersea.
“We greatly look forward to welcoming her and all of our new pupils to the school in September."
This will be a special moment for Kate Middleton in particular as she was unable to accompany her eldest, George, to his first day in 2017.
At the time, the Duchess was sick with severe morning sickness as she was pregnant with Prince Louis.
