13 Sweet Photos of Little Royals Overcoming Their First-Day-of-School Jitters


A lot of fuss is made about the perks of being a British royal, but those perks don’t include not having to go to school. Even the royal children need to get an education, which means their parents sometimes have to handle school drop-offs — just like the rest of us. 

It’s sweet to see old photos of Queen Elizabeth or Princess Diana accompanying their little ones to school because it’s a reminder of how much each one loved her family. Just because they’re royalty doesn’t mean the things they want for their children are that much different from our own wishes. In the end, we all just want our kids to learn in a safe environment, one that fosters their curiosity and encourages them to pursue the things that interest them. 

Though there were no photos of Prince George and Princess Charlotte‘s first day of school in 2018, we found plenty of photos of the rest of the royal family starting school that are equally adorable! (And don’t worry, we’ll most likely see the Cambridge kids at Princess Eugenie’s upcoming wedding.) Take a trip down memory lane and see not only Prince William and Prince Harry’s first days of school, but also their teeny-tiny matching uniforms.
