Princess Charlotte Was Shy & Sweet on First Day of School Hiding behind Mom Kate Middleton
A first for Princess Charlotte! The little girl who is usually outgoing hid behind her mother as she had a moment of shyness on her first day at Thomas's Battersea.
Princess Charlotte is usually the brave and outspoken one among Prince William and Kate Middleton's children, but on September 5, she suffered a moment of shyness as she arrived with her parents to Thomas's Battersea for her first day of elementary school.
THE SHY AND SWEET PRINCESS
In a video shared by the Royals' Twitter account, "Kensington Royal," little Charlotte walked slightly behind her mother as they approached the gates of her new school. The shy moment was equally sweet, as the Princess held onto her mom with one hand.
However, true to her nature, the little girl soon recovered from her moment of shyness, and gracefully shook hands with Helen Haslem, the head of the lower school.
Prince George, who has been attending Thomas's since 2017, stood beside his father, and as the family walked towards the entrance, Prince William said,
"First Day, she's very excited."

The Cambridges" want their children to have a normal life as much as possible before taking on their royal obligations fully. In the meantime, the young Prince and Princess area settling in school, and a Royal source said that the siblings would lean on each other as their life restricts them from leaning on others.
THE DYNAMIC BETWEEN THE PRINCE AND PRINCESS
The restrictions equally created a dynamic between the siblings, making George the somewhat shy and reserved one, and Charlotte the friendly and outgoing one.
A body language expert, Judi Jones, told Express UK that the dynamic is similar to that of Prince Charles and Princess Anne. It's equally identical to what exists between Prince William and Harry.
The Royals in line to the throne are usually more laid back because they stand to rule one day, while their siblings have more freedom to express themselves, and are more sociable. With uneasy being the head that wears the crown, it's fortunate that the little Royals have each other.
