The youngster is due to start reception, joining Prince George, six, who is beginning his third term at the fee-paying school.

A palace spokesperson confirmed: “Princess Charlotte, accompanied by The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and Prince George, will attend her first day of school at Thomas’s Battersea on Thursday 5th September.”

Mum-of-three Kate missed out on Prince George’s big day in 2017, as she was pregnant with Prince Louis at the time, and suffering from acute morning sickness, known as hyperemesis gravidarum.

Prince William took Prince George to school while Kate stayed at home, with adorable photos showing the 37-year-old carrying his son’s book bag.

Kate and William are said to be hands-on parents, both regularly spotted doing the school run.

And it will be a big day for Charlotte, who is expected to start learning French once a week at her new school.

The school charges usually charges £6,429 a term – or £19,287 a year – but Princess Charlotte will only be charged £6,305 a term, or £18,915 a year, as she gets a sibling discount.

Thomas’s Battersea, which describes itself as a Christian school and is open to children of all faiths, believes in “praise as the greatest motivator”.

It is also taught that kindness is as important as academic success.

Art, ballet, drama, ICT, French, music and physical education are all taught by specialist teachers from a child’s first day.

It comes after we revealed adorable photos of Prince Harry and Princess Beatrice for their first day of school.

We recently revealed Prince George will reportedly be showing Princess Charlotte the ropes when she joins him at school.

And the royal siblings reportedly “lean” on each other as play dates with outsiders can be tricky, a royal source has claimed.
