The Duchess of Cambridge missed her son's first day in 2017 due to sickness when she was pregnant with Prince Louis. This time around, both parents walked in holding their babies' hands as the kids got ready to embark on a new adventure. 

Before heading off to school, the brother and sister posed for first-day-of-school pics.

Prince George looked like a real expert.

On his first day of school in 2017, Prince George looked serious and focused. Now that he is a seasoned pro, he walked in confidently but also laid back, and he turned to look at his little sis a few times. 

Of course, the Royal Highness was a bit shy at first.

The dress Kate wore was stunning and fit her so beautifully. The kids looked so dapper themselves in their adorable school outfits. Charlotte wore a navy blue skirt and top with a red trim, Mary Jane-style black shoes, and white socks. The couple are said to pay $23,000 a year per child for the private school, and we have no doubt young Charlotte will make the most out of it.
