The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge have announced that their daughter, Princess Charlotte, will begin attending a London nursery from January.

William and Kate, who is pregnant with her third child, will send the two-year-old to Willcocks Nursery School, located close to their Kensington Palace home.

A school spokesman said: "We are delighted that the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge have chosen the Willcocks Nursery School for Princess Charlotte.

"We look forward to welcoming Charlotte to our nursery in January."

The royal couple have also released a new family photograph of themselves and their children - which will feature on their Christmas card.

The photograph shows the duke with his son, Prince George, standing immediately in front of him, while Charlotte stands with her mother.

The image was taken at Kensington Palace earlier this year by Chris Jackson, royal photographer for Getty Images.
