Princess Charlotte started Year 1 at her school, Thomas's Battersea, this week. After a difficult Reception year, which saw the five-year-old spending much of 2020 being homeschooled by her mum Kate, Duchess of Cambridge, Charlotte is now to start learning key subjects such as English, History and Geography.

But on top of the core subjects every child needs to master, Thomas's Battersea offers pupil on Year 1 also extra classes ranging from music to dance.

And it also features a fine hall for drama productions, which, if chosen by Charlotte, could see the outgoing princess step onto the stage in the future.

Prince William proudly revealed in March his daughter loves to dance, a preference which will likely see the little Cambridge take part in classes featuring a live pianist.

Speaking to attendees at a Commonwealth reception in March 2018, the Duke of Cambridge said: “My daughter Charlotte loves dancing".

The Duke and Duchess appear to be cultivating Charlotte's love for ballet and dance.

As Christmas 2018 was approaching, Kate took the little Cambridge to a special pre-rehearsal performance of The Nutcracker in London, at the Royal Opera House.

An onlooker who spotted mum and daughter among the crowd told People:
