Britain's Prince George heads off for first day of school

Maude, four, was accompanied by her father to the gates of the school on Thursday morning for the first day of term. "It's a nice school".

Father and son, arriving hand in hand, and were greeted by the director of the nursery school, Helen Haslem, and George, obviously intimidated but courageous, did not fail to shake the hand held out by the latter before being escorted to the classroom.

Clarence House posted a picture of George with a throwback picture of Prince Charles, his grandfather.

However, the Duchess of Cambridge was absent on his big day due to hyperemesis gravidarum, which is nothing but morning sickness suffered by many women during early pregnancy.

Just as the world is heading back to school and posting photos of it on social media, so is Prince George - and thankfully, Kensington Palace is posting photos (and videos!) of the big day on Instagram.

George's smart new uniform consists of navy Bermuda shorts, a v-neck jumper with a red stripe, and light blue shirt underneath, finished off with a pair of black loafers.


Like any 4-year-old, George looked a little unsure as he walked up to greet the head of the school.

BATTERSEA, ENGLAND - AUGUST 01: A general view of Thomas's Battersea school on August 1, 2017 in Battersea, England. "We are going to try to make this a really happy, safe and secure time".

Previously, Prince George attended nursery at the Westacre Montessori School, in Norfolk.

"Then they will be here eventually for full days and then we will start to introduce them to the breadth of the curriculum". It's not just for boys, either: The study found that sales for girls' shorts have risen 17 percent since previous year. George's class will have 20 students, and will be taught ballet, French, art, drama, and music-apart from regular school subjects.

Thomas's Battersea was chosen by the Duke and Duchess so they can give George as normal a life as possible.
