Kensington Palace shares photos of Princess Charlotte as she starts nursery school

Princess Charlotte is a big girl now - she started nursery school on Monday afternoon.

Princess Charlotte is going to be a middle child soon as the royal family is expecting a new addition to their family this spring, but she doesn't seem to be lacking for any attention from her family or the public.

The nursery school, founded in 1964, is housed in a church hall just a short walk from Kensington Palace.

Unlike previous senior royals, Prince William attended nursery school as a child and son George made the step up from nursery to primary school in September when he began at Thomas's Battersea, a private school in southwest London.

She had a little backpack on her back, and was beaming with excitement, showing none of the nerves that her older brother, Princes George, 4, displayed when he arrived for his first day of primary school previous year. Pupils are split into four learning groups named after birds: Swifts, Swallows, Cygnets and Swans.

It has an unflinching ethos according to its website: "High standards, excellence and good manners". Though Charlotte looks a little more excited, the resemblance is evident.

But it won't be all clay-pot making for Charlotte: she'll have to tidy away dress ups and put out milk for her classmates.

The images were taken by her mother, the Duchess of Cambridge, before Charlotte went Monday to the nearby Willcocks Nursery School in London. "We look forward to welcoming Charlotte to our nursery in January".
