    The Cambridges are one of the most talked-about families in the world, but while the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge spend the most time in front of the cameras, it’s their children that really steal the limelight.

    From Prince George’s cheeky grin to Prince Louis’ royal wave, these toddlers never fail to make news. But it was the public favourite, Princess Charlotte, who got everyone talking as she showed up for her first day at Thomas’s Battersea last week.

    It was announced that the four-year-old would be known simply as ‘Charlotte Cambridge’ within the school walls, following in the footsteps of her brother, Prince George, who is known as ‘George Cambridge’.

    It shouldn’t be long before Princess Charlotte has a school nickname of her own however, with it emerging this week that the miniature royal was known as ‘the warrior princess’ at her nursery.

    Why? Because of her ‘tomboy’ nature.

    ‘I’m wondering if that might be a nickname that will stick with her,’ royal expert Katie Nicholl told Entertainment Tonight. ‘Apparently she earned that nickname because obviously she is a Princess, but she’s quite a tomboy.’

    She continued: ‘She loves climbing trees and she’s very much an adventurer, she was quite known for her feisty personality.’

    Will the Warrior Princess nickname stick for Thomas’s Battersea? Only time will tell!
