“The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are very pleased to share two photographs of Princess Charlotte at Kensington Palace this morning. The images were taken by The Duchess shortly before Princess Charlotte left for her first day of nursery at the Willcocks Nursery School,” Kensington Palace shared on Instagram on Monday.

In the sweet shots, Princess Charlotte is all smiles and looking 0h-so-very-British in her red coat and matching red shoes and bow.

Just last month, the family announced that Charlotte would be starting school in the New Year. Her big brother Prince George also started nursery school at the age of 2 and a half but only went part-time to a Montessori school. He now attends the posh London academy Thomas’s Battersea.

Willcocks Nursery school reportedly goes for approximately £3,050 ($4,073) per term. There are three terms in the year, so that costs families around £9,150, or about $12,200, per year.
