William and Kate's middle child is due to start in September

Kensington Palace has revealed that Princess Charlotte will join her big brother Prince George at school later this year.

Charlotte, who turned four at the start of May, will attend Thomas's Battersea – a private day school in London, where fees are reported to cost £17k per year.

George started in the school's reception class in 2017, so will no doubt be able to show his little sister the ropes.
