She’s growing up so fast! It seems like just yesterday that Princess Charlotte stepped out for her first day of nursery school and now, according to a new report, Kate Middleton and Prince William‘s three-year-old daughter is gearing up to join her big brother, Prince George, at grade school next year. 

On Monday, Aug. 20, Australian outlet Now to Love reported that Charlotte will soon graduate from Willcocks Nursery School and will then attend London’s posh Thomas’s Battersea school in 2019. When the little Princess starts her first year at Thomas’s Battersea, her five-year-old brother, George, will be in Year Two. 

Kate and William’s daughter began attending nursery school in January 2018. At the time, the proud parents shared the cutest snapshots of Charlotte on her way to class clad in a bright red wool coat, matching shoes, a pink scarf, and a little backpack.

“The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are very pleased to share two photographs of Princess Charlotte at Kensington Palace this morning. The images were taken by the Duchess shortly before Princess Charlotte left for her first day of nursery at the Willcocks Nursery School,” the two snapshots were captioned on the official Kensington Palace Instagram account. 

Once the photos of Charlotte were released, royal fans couldn’t contain their excitement over the new pics. “Awww! She’s so cute and big!” one person commented with another writing, “The cutest little princess there ever was!” Prior to her first day at school, Kate and William announced last December — along with their 2017 Christmas card! — that their little girl would be attending London’s Willcocks Nursery School starting in January. 

“Their Royal Highnesses have also announced this morning that Princess Charlotte will attend the Willcocks Nursery School in London from January 2018. The Willcocks Nursery School has said: ‘We are delighted that The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge have chosen the Willcocks Nursery School for Princess Charlotte. We look forward to welcoming Charlotte to our nursery in January,'” the couple said in a statement posted to Instagram. 

The school is conveniently located close to the family’s Kensington Palace home, next to London’s Royal Albert Hall. According to In Touch, Charlotte’s tuition is $12,00 per-year. “Kate and William will be by her side during the first few days to help her adjust,” a source told the news outlet. “With her outgoing personality, it probably won’t take long!” 

Before he started at Thomas’s Battersea in September 2017, George attended nursery school at age two-and-a-half at Westacre Montessori School, which is located near William and Kate’s Amner Hall country home.
