Princess Charlotte is off for her 1st day at nursery school

She'll be attending The Willcocks Nursery School, a program that is very close to Kensington Palace and describes itself as a "traditional nursery school which strives to maintain its ethos for high standards, excellence and good manners".

In the pictures, the fourth in line to the throne is wearing a coat and scarf and what appears to be a rucksack.

At first, Charlotte will be invited with her parents for a short "stay and play" session, the nursery's website suggests.

Prince William and Kate Middleton had announced that Charlotte, 2, would be starting preschool after the new year in their Christmas card in December.

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 past year.

Charlotte's older brother and future King of England, Prince George is reported to be returning to Thomas' Battersea school next week. Pupils are split into four learning groups named after birds: Swifts, Swallows, Cygnets and Swans.

The school, which charges £14,550 ($19,740) per year, was classed as "outstanding" at the last official inspection in 2012.

Daily lessons are themed around topics such as archaeology and the environment.

PRINCESS Charlotte has started nursery school, with her mother Catherine the Duchess of Cambridge photographing her beaming as she headed off to school on a freezing London winter's day.
