Princess Charlotte arrives for her first day of school

Princess Charlotte began her first day at school with a welcome handshake from staff.

The four-year-old follows in the footsteps of big brother Prince George, who has been attending Thomas's Battersea for the past two years. Charlotte arrived with her family, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, and George by car as other parents dropped off their children at the south London school.
