Prince George started his first day of school at Thomas’s Battersea school in London on Thursday.
The 4-year-old arrived at school with his uniform, school bag along with father Prince William.
The Duchess of Cambridge missed the happiest moment in her eldest son’s life after being struck down by severe morning sickness in the early stages of her third pregnancy.
The two were greeted by Helen Haslem, head of the lower school.
With the help of his new teacher, the Prince then made his way into school to find his class and seat.
The Duke later said, “Prince George had a good day . It was really nice actually. It’s a nice school.”
When asked if he gave the four-year-old any advice, he said, “Of course not, he wouldn’t take it from me, I don’t think, at that age.
“No, but I shall be interested to hear how he got on. At that age you don’t worry quite so much about going to school as you do when you get a bit older. It’s that business of meeting new people and wondering, you know”, he added.
Ben Thomas, Principal of Thomas’s London Day Schools, insisted that George would be treated like any other pupil.
He said ,”There won’t be any special treatment at all. In fact what his parents would like for him, as any parent would like for their child, is they have a wonderful, fulfilling and private childhood in a place which is secure.”
The Duke stayed with his son for around 40 minutes before leaving in the care of his new teacher.
