Princess Charlotte's cute nicknames revealed as she starts school

George will show her the ropes

A royal expert has revealed the adorable nicknames Princess Charlotte will likely go by as she starts "big school" with her brother Prince George.

On today's (05.09.19) episode of Lorraine, royal correspondent Katie Nicholl chatted with the host from Kensington Palace as footage showed the Cambridges dropping their two eldest children off at Thomas's school in Battersea.

Katie said on the programme: "[Charlotte] will be shown the ropes by Prince George. He's had a really happy two years at Thomas's.

"I think she's quite a big personality. I've watched her in action, I've seen her poke her tongue out at her grandfather the last time we saw her, at the regatta. She rules the roost here at Kensington Palace. It's something the Queen jokes about."

Speaking further, Katie said Charlotte has been "counting down the days" throughout the summer until she starts what she's been calling "big school".

She went on to reveal the nicknames that Charlotte was known by while she was at Willcocks Nursery, and said her new pals will likely take them up too.

Katie continued: "The children don't get any special treatment [at Thomas's]. Maybe they're royal highnesses, but at school, George is known as PG and we'll see what Charlotte is known as.

"Probably Lottie, which is what she was known as at nursery. And also the Warrior Princess, I'm told, was her favourite nickname."

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge accompanied their daughter as she started her school journey today.

William and Kate were pictured as they arrived at Thomas's with Charlotte and George, who is going into Year Two, having started there in 2017.

Charlotte is known for her cheeky antics and isn't normally shy in public, but she appeared so this morning - clinging onto Kate's hand and even hiding behind her mum slightly as they arrived.

In clips shared by Kensington Palace, Sky News and other outlets, the princess looked both nervous and excited as she walked on her tip toes and fidgeted with her hair, which was pulled back into a ponytail.

The family smiled when they neared the building and Prince William was heard saying Charlotte was "very excited" to start.

The head of Thomas' lower school, Helen Haslem, greeted the princess with a handshake.

It's unsurprising that Kate appeared just as excited as her daughter, as she had to miss George's first day at school. At the time, she was carrying her third child, Prince Louis, and was ill with the severe vomiting condition hyperemesis gravidarum.
