The world may be anxiously awaiting the birth of Kate Middleton’s third child, but we’d like to take a moment and pay tribute to her second child.
Not because there’s anything wrong with Princess Charlotte, of course.
But because there’s so much right with the two-year old.
Namely, she is REALLY cute!
On Monday morning, the toddler started her run at Willcocks Nursery School, which is situated next door to London’s Royal Albert Hall and which is very close to her family’s Kensington Palace home.
In recognition of the life milestone, the Royal Family unveiled two new portraits of Charlotte, who turns three years old on May 2.
And, in a fun little twist, both were snapped by Middleton herself!
“The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are very pleased to share two photographs of Princess Charlotte at Kensington Palace this morning,” said a Palace spokesman along with the snapshots, adding:
“The images were taken by The Duchess shortly before Princess Charlotte left for her first day of nursery at the Willcocks Nursery School.”
Seriously, Kate, it’s not enough for you to be beautiful, fashionable, and, by all accounts, charitable and kind?
You must be an ace photographer as well?!?
Charlotte posed for the very cute photos on the steps outside her Kensington Palace residence, holding on to a railing in the picture immediately above.
The tiny Royal donned a $ 150 burgundy Razorbil wool coat by Amaia and paired itwith stone-colored tights, red shoes and a matching red bow.
She carried a pink backpack by Cath Kidston.
Saying of Charlotte’s famous parents, an insider told People Magazine:
“They chose [this school] because they thought it would be an ideal first step for Charlotte’s education and they were impressed by the team who work there.”
Makes sense. That’s basically why any parents would choose any school.
Charlotte’s older brother, Prince George, started nursery school at the same age as Charlotte, back in in January of 2016.
(He’s now four years old. How crazy is that?!?)
George attended a Montessori school just a short drive from the family’s country house, Anmer Hall.
He began his educational life on a part-time basis, however, while Charlotte will be attending full time. She’s clearly serious about school already.
This is all very exciting, of course. And we wish Charlotte the best.
But the real exciting news for her parents is that they are about to become parents again!
She’s due in April and may be having twins, which, if true, would more or less cause the Internet to explode.
And right after Kate gives birth, Prince Harry will marry Meghan Markle.
Indeed, it’s a very busy time for members of the Royal Family.
