Today, Prince George began his school life under the watchful eye of his extremely proud parents, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge.
The lively two-year-old’s appeared a bit windswept as he made his way into Westacre Montessori School near the family home, Anmer Hall in Norfolk.
Blonde-haired George, dressed in a navy quilted jacket with a tartan-lined hood and a light blue rucksack, is believed to have spent only a couple of hours at the school today to help ease him into lessons. A source reported, ‘It all went well.’
Kensington Palace shared two special images of Prince George’s first day on their social media accounts.
They were taken by his adoring mother and keen photographer, the Duchess of Cambridge.
One image of him looking at the camera was captioned on Twitter, ‘Prince George arrives for his first day at nursery in Norfolk earlier today.’
While the second, of him pointing at a mural in a stance reminiscent of his grandfather Prince Charles, read, ‘The Duke and Duchess have released 2 photos to mark Prince George’s first day at Westacre Montessori School nursery.’
William and Kate opted to send George to local nursery Westacre as it is so convenient to their country home.
It will cost the couple £5.50 per hour– or £33 per day – to send their son to the school, which is significantly cheaper than similar London establishments.
Of its 27 children, 23 are in receipt of funding to help pay the fees.
The school, in the tiny village of East Walton, is situated on a private road which, the couple hope, will enable their son, who will be two and half next month, to enjoy his time there away from the spotlight.
George will not attend a nursery while in London.
