The first day of school is a nerve-wracking experience for any child, whether they're an English princess or not.
And Princess Charlotte, who enrolled at Thomas's Battersea earlier this week, had the whole world watching her every step as she arrived at her new school.
The young princess seemed visibly nervous as she approached the school and played anxiously with her hair while holding her mom's hand. However, her mom, Kate Middleton, offered some handy, yet heartwarming, advice for her daughter about how to handle the first-day nerves.
Keep scrolling to read the full story, and to hear the advice that the Duchess of Cambridge had for her daughter.
The Royal Family are the most famous family in the world.

They have long been Royal favorites.Following their lavish, and highly documented royal wedding in 2011, Wills and Kate were thrown into the media spotlight, and we still can't get enough of them.
They met while studying at university.

Though their relationship was on and off for years...
via: GettyThey clearly couldn't stay away from each other, and their engagement was announced in 2010, 9 years after they first met.
And, ever since, we have followed them as their own little family grew.In July 2013, Prince George Alexander Louis of Cambridge was born, becoming the third in line to the throne of Great Britain. Kate emerged from St. Mary's hospital in London in a blue polka dot dress, which many saw as a fitting tribute to Princess Diana, who wore a similar spotty attire herself some thirty-one years earlier.
Princess Charlotte followed shortly after.

The princess has actually made royal history.
via: GettyPrincess Charlotte became the first female royal to retain her claim to the throne, despite having a younger brother. Before the Succession to the Crown Act 2013, the birth of a son meant that he would leap over any older daughters in the line of succession.
Traditionally, Prince Louis would have overtaken Charlotte in the line to the throne.
via: GettyBut, now that Princess Charlotte hasn't been ruled out by gender, Prince Louis remains fifth-in-line to the throne, while Charlotte is fourth-in-line behind her older brother, Prince George.
Yet, despite making history...
via: GettyPrincess Charlotte is best known for her adorable and outgoing personality.
She has never been one to shy away from the camera.
via: GettyAnd often steals the show at royal events by determinedly waving and smiling for the hoards of paparazzi and press.
And she hasn't been afraid to throw tantrums in public...

And, to this day, Charlotte has remained the cheekiest member of the Royal Family.
via: GettyBecause which other member of the Royal family would playfully stick their tongue out at the crowd below them at a charity sailing race?
Prince George, on the other hand, is much more introverted.
via: GettyYet, despite Charlotte being "more outgoing" than her brother, the two still seem to have maintained a strong bond. And, as PEOPLE has previously reported, the young royals are incredibly close to each other. "They are close in age, and they spend so much time together," a source said. "Playdates [with outsiders] can be tricky, so they learn to lean on each other."
And Prince George is incredibly protective over his little sister.
via: GettyWhich, with Charlotte having just enrolled at the same school as him, should help her greatly as she settles in and makes new friends.
George will show his little sister the ropes.
via: GettyA source from Hello! Magazine added that George can be very protective of his younger sister. "Prince George is a very protective and lovely older brother," said royal biographer, Penny Junor. "I'm sure he'll look after his little sister and take great pride in showing her the ropes."
And, to help soothe Charlotte's nerves, Kate reminded her daughter of just that.
