The Royal family may seem out of reach, but let’s not forget that they have to do many of the same things we do—like drop our kids off to school, for instance. Princess Charlotte went to her first day of nursery school yesterday at the Willocks Nursery School in London, England. And, just like us, her proud mama couldn’t resist taking a few photos to remember the sweet moment.
Kensington Royal, the official Instagram account that shares photos and videos about The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge as well as Prince Harry, posted two adorable photos of the youngest family member.
“The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are very pleased to share two photographs of Princess Charlotte at Kensington Palace this morning,” the royal spokesperson says in the captions for the pictures. “The images were taken by The Duchess shortly before Princess Charlotte left for her first day of nursery at the WIlcokcs Nursery School.”
Her first day outfit is perfect, too. Princess Charlotte is wearing a red peacoat (and matching shoes!) with a pastel pink scarf to keep warm—and, no we won’t judge if you’re tempted to recreate this look with your little one on their first day of school. ?
Last year, Kate Middleton shared just how hard it was to send Prince George off to school when he started kindergarten at Thomas’s Battersea School—but it did teach her the importance of community.
“As a mother, just getting used to leaving my own child at the school gates, it is clear to me that it takes a whole community to help raise a child,” she said during the opening of the School Leaders Forum.
Charlotte’s first day of school won’t be the only milestone for the family this year. Kate and William are set to have baby number three in April and Prince Harry and Meghan Markle will wed soon after on May 19. We simply can’t wait to see more royal babies in the future.
Good luck in school, Charlotte. And for mama Kate, remember: You’ve got this.
