Princess Charlotte wore this on her first day, just like all the other royal children

I could talk all day about Brexit, but I’m frankly over it, so today I’d rather focus on the news that Princess Charlotte arrived for her first day at school today.

She joined big brother Prince George, and like him, she wore St Thomas’ Battersea’s uniform, a tradition for all royals (and non royals!) attending the school.

The uniform includes a jumper emblazoned with the school’s symbol, the royal unicorn, which is also a symbol of Scotland and appears on the coat of arms of the United Kingdom. It also symbolises purity and innocence.

However, Princess Charlotte added an extra personal touch to her outfit for her first day, whereas Prince George didn’t.

The little girl added a sequin unicorn keyring to her backpack, and it was just adorable. She’s obviously too young to be paying tribute to her family on purpose, but I’d like to think she’s taking a leaf out of her mother Kate Middleton’s sartorial book.

She arrived at the school this AM with her brother and parents, and was reportedly excited to start her education.
