Prince George started school at St Thomas’ Battersea just a few weeks ago, but according to his dad, the four-year-old is so over it already.
William, who has been taking his son to school each morning while his pregnant wife Kate rests at home after suffering with Hyperemesis Gravidarum – revealed that George is feeling a little fed up of going every day.
Earlier this week, during an official appearance, Prince William told a fellow parent that though George had only been a student for about three weeks, he is no longer excited by the school routine.
Louise Smith told reporters: ‘[William] told me he’d just dropped George off at school and he didn’t want to go. Sounds a bit like mine, really.’
The Duke of Cambridge took the time to say hello to both of Louise’s daughters, Sophia, three and Holly, one, during his visit to her hometown in Bedfordshire to mark its 50th anniversary.
Prince George’s attitude to school was actually predicted by the 35-year-old dad of two himself, after he admitted on George’s first day: ‘We are all seeing how long that lasts before he doesn’t want to go.’
And while a nervous-looking George settled in happily on his first day, it seems that as he expected, the honeymoon period is well and truly over.
George, who is third in line to the throne, will soon see another major change in his life, as he’ll step up again as big brother once Kate gives birth to his new sibling.

However, he’ll have some time to get used to the adjustment, as his mum’s due date is reportedly around March time, after Prince William let slip that his wife reached the 12-week mark in September 2017.
After receiving congratulations from an audience member at the National Mental Health and Policing conference in Oxford, the future king said: ‘Thank you, it’s very good news. There’s not much sleep going on at the moment.’
He then added: ‘It was a bit anxious to start with,’ but that they can ‘start celebrating this week’.
