Proud father alert! Prince William recently revealed that Princess Charlotte is happy to be starting school. "First day! Very excited," the Duke of Cambridge told headteacher Helen Haslem of Thomas`s Battersea while walking his 4-year-old daughter and Prince George (6).

The royal siblings, who wore navy and red uniforms, posed for an adorable picture together. The sweet picture features the brother-sister duo smiling together in their uniforms. Kensington Palace shared the happy picture on its handle, writing, "The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are very pleased to share a photograph of Prince George and Princess Charlotte at Kensington Palace this morning.

The photo was taken shortly before Their Royal Highnesses left for Thomas`s Battersea. "A number of other pictures and videos showed their parents carrying their matching backpacks. Last month, Kensington Palace told Us Weekly in a statement about the little munchkin`s school plans."

Princess Charlotte will be attending Thomas`s Battersea starting next Thursday, September 5.

Kate and William will be by her side for her first day of school. There will be unofficial school portraits from Charlotte and George`s first day," the statement read.

News broke in May that she would join George at Thomas`s Battersea, which is about three miles from the royal family`s home.

"We are delighted that The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge have decided that Princess Charlotte will join her elder brother, Prince George, at Thomas`s Battersea," Simon O`Malley, headmaster at the school, said in a statement at that time.

William and Kate are also proud parents to 16-month-old Prince Louis.
