These just-released photos from Princess Charlotte's first day at school are adorable

Princess Charlotte had her first day of 'big school' today - and the photos are too cute.

The four-year-old started at Thomas' Battersea in South London this morning and was joined by her mum, Kate Middleton, and dad, Prince William.

The young royal held her mum's hand as they walked through the school's gates this morning. The Duchess of Cambridge held onto the daughter's schoolbag as they walked into the classroom, with Prince George walking alongside his father.

 

The Sun report the Cambridge family were greeted by the head of the lower school, Helen Haslem, with William telling her how Charlotte was "very excited" to be started school.

Thomas’s Battersea is described as "a busy, thriving, purposeful school", which has 560 students between the ages of four and 13.

They offer a broad curriculum, with Art, Ballet, Drama, ICT, French, Music and PE all taught by specialist teachers from a child’s first day in school.

 

The school's website says:

"As you would expect of any Thomas’s school, the most important school rule is to 'Be Kind'. The school is structured in three, three-year stages (the Lower, Middle and Upper Schools) within a framework of 'Enjoyment, Learning and Achievement', which informs a child’s journey through the school.

"Children join at the age of four and leave at 11 or 13. Whilst we are proud of our record of senior school entrance and scholarship successes, we place a greater emphasis on a set of core values, which include kindness, courtesy, confidence, humility and learning to be givers, not takers.

"We hope that our pupils will leave this school with a strong sense of social responsibility, set on a path to become net contributors to society and to flourish as conscientious and caring citizens of the world."
