Kensington Palace has announced that Princess Charlotte will be joining her older brother Prince George at Thomas's Battersea school in September 2019.

George has been attending the school since 2017, and it's now time for his young sister to begin full-time education, too. The school, which is based in London, describes itself as a 'busy, thriving, purposeful school' and has lessons including ballet.

Simon O’Malley, Headmaster at Thomas’s Battersea, said: 'We are delighted that The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge have decided that Princess Charlotte will join her elder brother, Prince George, at Thomas’s Battersea. We greatly look forward to welcoming her and all of our new pupils to the school in September.'

No other information has been revealed, but it's likely that Charlotte's start to schooling will be similar to her brother's.

Hopefully we'll also get to see some adorable photos of the princess in her uniform, in a similar fashion to George's first day where the future king was seen nervously holding his dad and new teacher's hand.

Unlike Prince William's first day, where they waved on the steps to a throng of photographers, George's was a lot calmer, with only one cameraman and one photographer accompanying them, so it's likely Charlotte's experience will be similar.

The biggest difference however is that the Duchess of Cambridge may also be on hand for Charlotte's first day. Unfortunately back in 2017 Kate was suffering with hyperemesis gravidarum during her third pregnancy with Prince Louis. This meant that she was too unwell to accompany George, so William ended up taking him solo.

And it looks like Princess Charlotte has an exciting time ahead of her. Thomas's boasts an eclectic curriculum including Art, Ballet, Drama, ICT, French, Music and PE.

The school also prides itself on its 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,' they write on their website.
