The four-year-old will be starting at Thomas’s Battersea on September 5 with her brother Prince George. Charlotte is very excited to be with her brother again at the private school just three miles from their home in Kensington Palace. A royal insider also revealed why the brother and sister are likely to spend a lot of time together.
They told PEOPLE: “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.”
Prince George has previously said he’s “very happy” at the school.
The six-year-old son of Kate, Duchess of Cambridge, and Prince William is to start his third year at the £6,000-a-term institute.
On the other hand, Princess Charlotte will begin her reception year within just days.
The little princess has previously attended Willcocks Nursery in Kensington since last January.
Speaking to Vanity Fair, a royal source said: “Charlotte has got a real character, she is very excited about starting school.”
Kensington Palace confirmed in May that William and Kate had decided to enrol Charlotte at the same school attended by George.
The little Cambridge was welcomed by the school’s headmaster, Simon O’Malley.
He said: We are delighted that the Duke & 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.”
The £19,287-a-year school has an enrolment of 540 girls and boys – aged between four to 13 – and boasts a wide curriculum and after-school activities, including outdoor learning, music, drama and dance.
The latter subject will be taken on by Prince George this year, as his curriculum will involve weekly ballet practice.
News of George’s ballet classes sparked hilarity during a Good Morning America’s segment last week.
TV presenter Lara Spencer poked fun at the young royal as pictures of Prince George were appearing on screen.
