There wasn’t a tear in sight when four-year-old Prince George was dropped off for his first day of school.

Accompanied by father, Prince William, George arrived at the gates of the prestigious co-educational Thomas’s at Battersea, south of the Thames.

Dressed in a navy school uniform, George appeared a little apprehensive while his dad carried his backpack.


Sadly George’s mother, Kate Middleton, was too sick to join him, having recently revealed she is suffering from Hyperemesis Gravidarum while pregnant with her third chid. 

“Unfortunately The Duchess of Cambridge remains unwell, and will not be able to accompany Prince George on his first day of school,’’ a Palace spokesman said, reports.

George was greeted at the gate by the Head of Lower School Helen Haslem.

“TRH were met by the Head of Lower School, before The Duke took Prince George inside to his reception classroom,” Kensington Palace tweeted.

The palace also released an adorable video of George arriving at the school gates.
