Despite Princess Charlotte appearing shy on her first day of school, it was reported the four-year-old was eager to start, with a source quoted by People claiming the princess was “so excited” to be in “big school” with her brother George.

They told the publication: “She can’t wait to be with George at big school. She is so excited about it all.

“They are close in age, and they spend so much time together. Playdates [with outsiders] can be tricky, so they learn to lean on each other.”
