This makes a huge difference to Prince George’s first day at the same school two years ago, as the Duchess of Cambridge was unable to accompany her little one.

At the time, Kate was pregnant with baby Louis and suffering from Hyperemesis Gravidarum (opens in new tab) - an extreme form of morning sickness that forced her to cancel all engagements during her first trimester.

On the day, Prince George looked adorable in his uniform while holding Prince William’s hand, so we’re looking forward to seeing Princess Charlotte on the first day of school too!

It seems the little one is very excited about joining brother George, according to PEOPLE magazine.

An insider told the publication: ‘She can’t wait to be with George at big school. She is so excited about it all.

‘They are close in age, and they spend so much time together. Playdates [with outsiders] can be tricky, so they learn to lean on each other.’
