Prince George Looks Adorably Nervous On His First Day of School

Prince George will be attending school in Battersea London three-and-a-half miles from home

Thomas's Battersea is an independent school in south-west London where annual fees cost from £17,604 and is a 20 minute drive from the family's Kensington Palace home.

The Duke told head coach Paul Simpson it had been a "good day".

But William said the day "went well" and joked that he was pleased another parent had problems with their children rather than him.

"It was really nice actually".

The youngster was photographed on September 7, holding hands with his father, Prince William, as they walked through the school gates at Thomas's Battersea in south-west London.

The announcement ended long-running speculation that George would follow in his father and uncle Harry's footsteps by attending the prestigious all-boys Wetherby prep school in Notting Hill.


Kate, who missed George's milestone, is suffering from hyperemesis gravidarum, as she did in her previous pregnancies.

Prince William recently ended his job as an ambulance helicopter pilot in order to concentrate on his royal duties as Queen Elizabeth II and Prince Phillip ease out of public life. It was Prince William who took his four-year-old son to school on his first day and escorted him into his reception classroom. He arrived on his first day looking a little apprehensive - but we're sure he'll be making friends in no time!

As expected, he wore a school uniform: navy blue shorts, a navy blue sweater with red stitching, and a light-blue collared shirt underneath.

The 68-year-old conceded that "at that age you don't worry quite so much about going to school as you do when you get a bit older" and the "business of meeting new people". Regarding George and his classmates' first day, Ben revealed, "The emphasis will be on a very, very gentle start". Duchess Kate of Cambridge, 35, has been struggling with acute morning sickness, forcing her to cancel engagements this week. According to its website, its curriculum includes art, ballet, drama and French.

On Tuesday it was announced that the royal couple is expecting a third child.
