Father takes Prince George to his first day of school

Father takes Prince George to his first day of school

Prince William dropped George off for his first day at Thomas's Battersea, a fee-paying independent school in south London.

The heir to the British throne drove his four-year-old through the gates into the auto park of Thomas's Battersea in London, where he then helped him out of the vehicle and carried his bag as the pair strolled hand-in-hand up to the entrance. As Kensington Palace announced earlier this week, she is again suffering from hyperemesis gravidarum, which causes acute morning sickness.

Prince George is met by Helen Haslem, head of Thomas's Battersea's lower school.

The Duke of Cambridge has revealed that Prince George's first day of school "went well" after a "stressful" school run.

Ben Thomas, principal of Thomas's London Day Schools, said there will be no special treatment for the royal, but lots of planning had gone into his attendance to ensure as little disruption as possible to other pupils.

Royal fans across the country will be cooing over photos of Prince George as he begins his first day at primary school.

Sri Lanka skipper Upul Tharanga pleaded the fans to back the team when he was asked about poor crowd attendance on the day. Bhuvneshwar returned figures of 5/42 while fellow medium-pacer Jasprit Bumrah also performed well with figures of 2/45.


Thomas said that the school's hope was that "he will be himself".

His move to London coincides with his parents' decision to move their main residence to Kensington Palace, as Prince William takes on more royal duties. Will we make friends?

A slightly apprehensive-appearing Prince George arrived for his first day of formal education Thursday, wearing his school uniform and holding on to his father's hand.

He is in a class of 21 pupils - one of three reception groups which are connected by a folding "carousel" door which is opened to allow group play three times a week.

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". According to its website, its curriculum includes art, ballet, drama and French.
