Prince William accompanied his son Prince George on his first day at Thomas’s Battersea on Thursday, 7 September 2017.
However, the Duchess of Cambridge was unable to attend as she was at home still battling severe morning sickness after cancelling official engagements earlier this week.
The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are very pleased to share a photograph of The Duke and Prince George at Kensington Palace this morning.
The image was taken shortly before Prince George left for his first day of school at Thomas’s Battersea.
Their Royal Highnesses are delighted to share this lovely picture as Prince George starts school, and would like to thank everyone for all of the kind messages they have received.
Prince William drove into the school through a side entrance to avoid the waiting media scrum outside the school.
The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge have broken with tradition by sending Prince George to a coeducational school, instead of boys only ones like Wetherby.
The little prince, who will be known as George Cambridge, looked rather nervous as he met the Head of Lower School, Helen Haslem inside the school grounds before he was shown into his Reception (Kindergarten) classroom.
According to the Evening Standard, Prince William said the day went well and that another parent had trouble with their child rather than him.
He added, “It was really nice actually. It’s a nice school.”

However, he is not the only member of the Royal Family who is attending Thomas’s Battersea.
His cousin, Maud Windsor, accompanied by her father Lord Frederick Windsor, arrived at Thomas’s School in Battersea for her first day of School.
However, there are three Reception classes so it is not known whether the royal cousins will be in the same one.
