Kate was too ill with morning sickness to accompany George on his first day.

She wore a stunning pink dress to attended St Thomas’ in Battersea today.

Princess Charlotte clung onto her mother’s hand, looking confident on her first day.

She shook hands with the headmistress of the school, smiling and standing on her tip toes. The little princess had a unicorn tag attached to her backpack.

Kensington Palace tweeted: “Princess Charlotte arrives for her first day of school at Thomas’s Battersea, joining her older brother Prince George.”

A video of the two children and their parents walking into school was posted alongside the video.

Kate Middleton’s style changed when she married into the Royal Family, according to Anthony McGrath, celebrity stylist and lecturer at the Fashion Retail Academy in London.

He told Express.co.uk: “As Kate transitioned to her role as the Duchess of Cambridge, her style inevitably evolved.

“Since Kate has been in the limelight she has always been somewhat of a conservative dresser, whether that was because she wanted to prove herself to the Royal Family or was her own personal style, who knows, but she was rarely seen in anything too risqué.”
