On social media Thursday there was a lot of love for Princess Charlotte on her first day of school.

"Me sat at work looking at all the pictures/videos of Princess Charlotte's first day #imnotcryingyouare," wrote Jessica Morrey.

Another person couldn't believe that Charlotte is already going to school.

Some people noted a stark resemblance between Princess Charlotte and her great-grandmother, Queen Elizabeth, when she was a child.

"I can really see the resemblance between Princess Charlotte and her great grandmother The Queen in this photo of her first day of school," said Robert Jobson.

"Princess Charlotte has The Queen's eyes. It's remarkable," added Bob Peters.

Prince William told the BBC that Charlotte is "very excited" to begin school.

William, who drove the family to the Battersea school, said: "First day - she's very excited."

Prince George, who joined the school in September 2017, began his first day of Year 2 on Thursday.

Thomas's Battersea caters to children aged between four and 13 and, according to its website, costs £6,429 (around $7,929) per semester for the eldest child in a family, and £6,305 (around $7,776) for a second child, as long as they are aged between four and seven. Fees go up per semester for further education between the ages of seven and 13.

The school has about 560 students.

Simon O'Malley, the school's headteacher, previously said of Charlotte's arrival: "We are delighted that the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge have decided that Princess Charlotte will join her elder brother, Prince George, at Thomas's Battersea. We greatly look forward to welcoming her and all of our new pupils to the school in September."
