Throwback: Let’s take a look back at Prince Harry’s first day in school


The pictures of Prince Harry’s first day in school have been resurfaced online recently.

The picture shows sweet similarities between Charlotte’s first day in school and her uncle’s.

When Princess Charlotte kicked off her academic years with big bro Prince George walking her in at prestigious Thomas’s Battersea, we all recalled another royal family moment — a throwback photo of Prince Harry’s first day at school.

Now, let’s zip back in time to the late ’80s when Harry took his first official stroll into Wetherby School. In the throwback photo of that day, Harry is also wearing a sharp uniform with red piping. And just like Charlotte, Harry had a built-in support system in his big brother. Even better, that big brother was obviously Charlotte’s dad, Prince William. This feels very full circle, no?

Meanwhile, Prince Harry appeared in good spirits as he arrived for his own first day in 1989. The experience was no doubt made a little less daunting as he had his big brother on hand for support, with the brothers looking adorable as they posed in their matching uniforms outside their preparatory school.
