The British royal family announced that Princess Charlotte, daughter of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, began her first day in nursery school.
Sporting a red coat, a light pink scarf and a pink backpack, the two-year-old princess posed for pictures taken by Duchess Catherine (Kate Middleton) outside Willcocks Nursery School.
William and Kate were requested to participate in a “stay and play” session to help settle their daughter into school life, reports Express.
According to BBC, the London school charges £3,000 (US$4,072) and £1,800 per term for morning and afternoon students, respectively.

Westacre Montessori, where Charlotte’s older brother Prince George went to nursery school, cost only £33 a day.
Prince George studied in Norfolk when the family was still based in Anmer Hall in the Queen’s Sandringham Estate. They have since moved to Kensington Palace.
The young prince’s first day was also a more private affair: his first day was only announced the day after he started.
