Princess Charlotte's first day at nursery school has been marked by the release of two pictures taken by her proud mother, the Duchess of Cambridge.
The two-year-old, who is fourth in line to the throne, was photographed at Kensington Palace before travelling to nearby Willcocks Nursery School.
Charlotte is pictured sitting down on some outside steps in the grounds of the famous palace and another standing as she holds on to a rail.
The young princess is wearing a scarf, coat and appears to have a rucksack on her back as she is photographed by her mother.
The princess will be a full-time pupil at the nursery, which charges fees of just over £3,000 a term for pupils attending its Monday to Friday morning school, and employs lots of play as children learn.
