William & Kate’s royal kids have added some personal details to their school uniforms

Whenever Prince William and Kate Middleton's school-age children Prince George and Princess Charlotte head back to school at Thomas's Battersea, which is 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!
