Doesn’t it feel like Princess Charlotte was an infant on the news literally yesterday?
The second born of Duke William and Duchess Kate of Cambridge is looking all giddy as she started her first day of preschool last Monday, and her parents couldn’t be prouder of the little one.
Momma Kate snapped some photos of the tot as she looked on at them beaming, probably not feeling the first day of school jitters.
She’s soooo excited to probably get out of the house, right?
The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are very pleased to share two photographs of Princess Charlotte at Kensington Palace this morning. pic.twitter.com/dDIOZdA7aM

The photo, shared by Kensington Palace on Twitter, has already garnered more than 70, 000 likes, and was also shared to Instagram.
“The images were taken by The Duchess shortly before Princess Charlotte left for her first day of nursery at the Willcocks Nursery School,” added the Kensington account.
Yahoo Lifestyle notes that the princess isn’t going to school wearing regular old Gap either: the two year old is garbed in a $162 red, Amaia Kids coat with matching Mary Jane shoes, a baby-pink scarf, and brown tights. Her look is finished off with a pink backpack, which just leads me to question: what kind of snacks did the Duchess pack for Princess Charlotte?
Anyway, people were also eager to share in the joy every parent probably feels when their little one is off to their first day of school:
So sweet to see the way she looks at her mum with such excitement and love.

Look how excited she is! I still remember being so excited on my first day of kindergarten 50 years ago! (We didn’t do nursery school in those days.) I hope Charlotte’s educational experience continues to excite her.

Big brother Prince George also had his milestone moment posted by the Kensington Palace account last September as he started his first day of lower school over at Thomas’s Battersea.
