Prince William has shared the adorable news that Prince George hasn’t yet realised that he has to go to school every day.
Looking shy and a little nervous, George started school at Thomas’s Battersea on Thursday 7th September.
Holding hands with his dad, Prince William, the little prince was dressed smartly in the school’s uniform of navy shorts and a v-neck jumper, ankle socks and black shoes as he shook hands with the head of lower school in front of the word’s media.
After exchanging a few words with Prince William the teacher then showed them inside and – taking George’s hand – led him to his new reception classroom.
Speaking of his son’s first steps in to the world of schooling, HELLO! magazine reports that during a visit to Aintree University Hospital in Liverpool, William spoke to patient Teresa Jones from Kirkby and said: ‘He hasn’t said, “Have I got to do this for the rest of my life?” yet.’
George’s mum Kate – who missed his first day after suffering with debilitating Hyperemesis Gravidarum – predicted in March that George ‘won’t know what hit him’ when he starts school.
However, William went on to say that the four-year-old, who is third in line to the throne, hasn’t started making a fuss – yet. But then the mini royal has been slowly eased in with half days, leaving each day at noon.
‘George has been really easy,’ admitted William. ‘He rules the roost at home, but Charlotte’s not far behind him.’

On another bedside visit he confided in patient Edna Dagnall: ‘George started school – we are all seeing how long that lasts before he doesn’t want to go!’
Ever the proud dad, Prince William was openly chatting to patients on his visit, he told Pagan Tordengrave: ‘George started school – and it’s been an interesting week.’
And, talking about his two-year-old daughter, Princess Charlotte, he joked: ‘she’s going to be trouble when she’s older’.
