The official images of the adorable young royal were released by Kensington Palace today. No details were released by palace officials on what happened, however, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge have been asked to attend a “stay and play” session with the youngster to ensure she is settling in on her first day at Willcocks Nursery School in Kensington today. They were due to join Princess Charlotte for the first part of the day, then leave for a short period when she appears to have settled in, in order to check that she is happy to be left on her own.

The idea behind the move is that Charlotte will become gradually more relaxed at school, before becoming happy to attend by herself. The nursery, near her family home at Kensington Palace, is owned and run by headmistress Lavinia Taylor, with an all-women staff, and emphasizes “good manners” in its founding principles – perfect for a princess in training. It was once featured in Tatler’s guide to top nurseries.

However, excellence comes at a price, and school fees at the nursery are £3,050 per term for morning sessions, as well as an extra £1,800 for afternoons. But her first day at nursery was a far cry from the experience of Prince William, who had dozens of reporters and photographers watching him as he arrived for his first day at nursery in September 1985. The Prince wore a stripy jumper, red shorts, and red shoes as he arrived at Mrs. Mynors’ Nursery School in Notting Hill in London, which was also a Montessori.

He shares an undeniable resemblance to Prince George as he is pictured on his first day. Kensington Palace arranged their own formal photocall for the day as Princess Diana and Prince Charles dropped their son off at the London nursery. The headmistress of the school knelt down to take William’s hand – who was three-years-old at the time. It was the first time a member of the royal family had attended a nursery outside the confines of Buckingham Palace.

It is understood that Diana had some control over the choice of nursery for her son. Diana herself went to a nursery in Pimlico that used the Montessori Method and she wanted William to be schooled in the same way. The Montessori Method of nursery education places an emphasis on independence, freedom and social development and children are encouraged to develop at their own rate. It is a method of education which was passed on down through the generations as the nursery George attended was also a Montessori.

The fees of Mrs. Mynors’ Nursery School at the time were £780 a year, which is equivalent to £2,200 now.
