Princess Charlotte is set to join her big brother Prince George at Thomas's Battersea from September 2019 this year, Kensington Palace confirmed on Friday.

“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,” Headmaster at Thomas’s Battersea Simon O’Malley said. “We greatly look forward to welcoming her and all of our new pupils to the school in September.”

The four-year-old currently attends Willcocks Nursery School in South Kensington.

Charlotte will join when the new school year starts, with fees of roughly $8,000 per term, according to the school's admissions information, as she is the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge’s second child.

There are added charges for extracurricular activities, such as ballet, drama and music lessons. Charlotte is said to be a fan of ballet and has reportedly been taking private lessons already.

Thomas’s Battersea teaches around 560 boys and girls between the ages of four and 13. Their website states that their most important school rule is to “Be Kind.”

Kate Middleton missed the occasion because she was not well enough to take him. The duchess was suffering with hypremesis gravidarum, or severe morning sickness, during her third pregnancy with Prince Louis.

George began his education in January 2016, at the Westacre Montessori School Nursery, near the family’s Norfolk home, Anmer Hall.

On Sunday, the palace released photos of the Cambridges as a family of five as they explored Kate’s “Back to Nature” garden at the Chelsea Flower Show.
