First Day of School: Princess Charlotte Playfully Pulls Her Ponytail Arriving with Prince George

Princess Charlotte is back to school! The little girl pulled at her ponytail playfully on her arrival with her parents to begin her first day of elementary school.

Princess Charlotte is no longer in nursery school; she began her first day of elementary school, on September 5, at Thomas's Battersea, in South London.


The little Princess arrived at the school in the company of Kate Middleton, Prince William, and older brother, Prince George. In a video shared by Kensington Royal on Instagram, the Cambridges' walked across the playground hand-in-hand.

Princess Charlotte held onto Middleton, who carried her backpack, and shyly shook the hand of Helen Haylem, the lady in charge of the lower school. As they walked towards the main entrance, the little girl used her hand to shake her ponytail severally, in a playful manner. 

Prince William, said, "First Day, she's very excited," and Middleton smiled in consent beside her daughter. Kensington Royal wrote alongside the video,

"Princess Charlotte arrives for her first day of school at Thomas's Battersea, joining her older brother Prince George."


Followers of the Royals' account took to the comment section to gush on how beautiful and down-to-earth the family looked, and one person wrote,

"So cute, she loves her ponytail. Have a fun day, Charlotte."

The Princess's school costs about $23,000, and it's located three miles from Kensington Palace. The curriculum includes Math, English, History, Sciences, Ballet, French, Computer, and Drama. 

A source close to the Royals told People that the little girl is excited to be in the same school as Prince George, as they always lean on each other. The young Prince started at Thomas's in 2017, and on his first day, he went in the company of his father.


At the time, Middleton was pregnant with Prince Louis, and could not make it to the school. Prince George settled in comfortably, and he is expected to act as a buffer for his sister as she begins her next level of education.

At school, the little girl, whose given name is Charlotte Elizabeth Diana, and title is, Her Royal Highness, Princess Charlotte of Cambridge, will not be addressed with any of the names. Her schoolmates will know her as "Charlotte Cambridge."

The Royals have a history of using their titles as their last name, and the Princess and her brother are following that tradition. All things being equal, the 4-year-old Royal will have a great first year, just like Prince George did.
