When Prince William and Kate Middleton's school-age children Prince George and Princess Charlotte headed back to school at Thomas's Battersea, just a 15-minute drive from the Kensington Palace family home, we have always looked forward to seeing what these adorable royal kids will wear for their first day of class.

And so, along with this guide to what George and Charlotte wear for back to school, we've also tracked down where you can shop the looks for your own children as well as kids prepare to head back to class this autumn.

What do Prince George and Princess Charlotte wear to school?

Pupils at George and Charlotte's south London school must wear the compulsory blue and red uniform, with its distinctive logo – a red unicorn reading a book – which is available exclusively to students at Perry Uniform.

However, there are some details of George and Charlotte’s looks that have been very much their own!

For her first day at Thomas's Battersea in 2019, Princess Charlotte arrived with mum Duchess Kate – dressed in a Michael Kors floral dress – dad Prince William and big brother George. 

George and Charlotte's backpacks

Princess Charlotte and Prince George both carried Thomas’s Battersea backpacks in accordance with the school uniform, albeit both were toted by their parents!

While this official school accessory, too, is just for students, a classic navy blue children’s carryall can be found in looks by many different brands from retailers like Amazon.

Meanwhile, eagle-eyed royal watchers had their eyes on a different royal school uniform accessory. Little Princess Charlotte had added another personal, and VERY sparkly, detail to her outfit.

Dangling from her official Thomas’s Battersea backpack was a sparkly pink sequin unicorn keychain. You can shop a sweet sparkly unicorn keychain just like Charlotte’s on Amazon.

Princess Charlotte's school shoes

Little Charlotte looked very smart and ready for class in her uniform: a blue pinafore with a white summer blouse, and navy blue Mary Jane shoes by Spanish brand Amaia in navy.

You can also get a similar pair at another of Kate Middleton’s favourite childrenswear brand also from Spain – La Coqueta – in which the Duchess has dressed youngest child Prince Louis.

Prince George's school uniform

Here's a fun fact – Kate Middleton was once spotted shopping for school shoes for George and Charlotte at Peter Jones, which is part of the John Lewis partnership, in Sloane Square! We wonder if she stocked up on extra loafers and shorts for Prince George...
