So Grown Up! Princess Charlotte Heads Off For Her First Day At Nursery - Captured On Camera By Her Proud Mum Kate

Princess Charlotte heads off for first day at nursery
Princess Charlotte's first day at nursery school has been marked by the release of two pictures taken by her proud mother, the Duchess of Cambridge.

The two-year-old, who is fourth in line to the throne, was photographed at Kensington Palace before travelling to nearby Willcocks Nursery School.

Charlotte is pictured sitting down on some outside steps in the grounds of the famous palace, while another photograph shows the little girl standing as she holds onto a rail.

The young princess is wearing a red coat, £120, by Amaia Kids teamed with a pink scarf, and a Cath Kidston pony rucksack, demonstrating perhaps that she already shares her great-grandmother the Queen's love of horses.

Kate, who celebrates her 36th birthday on Tuesday, is a keen and accomplished amateur photographer who last year accepted a lifetime honorary membership of the Royal Photographic Society which recognised her "talent and enthusiasm".

The Duchess bucked tradition when she took the first official photographs of her newborn daughter in 2015.

The photos of Charlotte showed the young princess being cradled by her older brother Prince George at William and Kate's Norfolk home, Anmer Hall.

The 35-year-old, a history of art graduate, has also released pictures to mark other milestones in her children's lives, including George's first day at nursery school and Charlotte's first birthday.

And today was no doubt an important milestone for the pregnant Duchess, who missed accompanying Prince George on his first day of school at Thomas's Battersea due as she was battling severe morning sickness at the time. 

The princess will be a full-time pupil at the nursery, which charges fees of just over £3,000 a term for pupils attending its Monday to Friday morning school, and employs lots of play as children learn.

Charlotte looked much more grown up in the new images released today, appearing to have grown taller, and with longer hair and a more confident smile, than when she was seen back in July during the family's official visit to Poland and Germany.

Although she was briefly spotted in the back of the car as her parents drove to the Queen's Christmas lunch at Buckingham Palace in December, she has not been seen publicly in an official capacity for six months. 

At her nursery school, the little Princess will enjoy pottery and poetry classes at the sought-after nursery, which is rated 'outstanding' by Ofsted and located next to the Royal Albert Hall.

Before starting officially, she would have been invited with her parents for a short 'stay and play'. Kate and William would then have been asked to leave to see if Charlotte was happy to be left alone.
