Little Prince George has taken after his grandfather Prince Charles. This was evident during his first day of nursery school at Westacre Montessori nursery in Norfolk, near his parents’ home Anmer Hall. The little royal was pictured pointing out at something which was exactly like his grandfather’s royal point.
When George made his way to his nursery school on Jan 6 with his navy quilted John Lewis jacket and a pale blue backpack strapped on his shoulders, mom Kate Middleton clicked a few pictures of him. She captured her two-year-old son outside the school. The tot looked confident as he headed inside and his finger pointing at a mural that had caught his attention.
George’s point is identical to that of his grandfather Charles. The 67-year-old royal is a seasoned pointer and has been pictured with his forefinger on display countless times over the years. Little George seems to be quickly following in his royal footsteps. He is also following another very senior royal in pointing – his great grandmother Queen Elizabeth II.
On his first day of school, his parents Kate and Prince William drove him to Westacre, which is a short drive from the family’s country mansion, Anmer Hall. The prince is expected to attend school a few days a week. “It went well,” a palace source told about the tot’s first day.
Meanwhile, inside his backpack the little prince carried a change of clothes, a healthy snack and perhaps a favorite toy. George looked like any pre-schooler eager to meet his new classmates. His parents made sure he was well-equipped for the morning session.
Once inside the school, George was introduced to his teachers and soon-to-be playmates, before exploring the classroom for the first time. He will learn how to play and interact with children his age and those a few years older. The Montessori has classes consisting of children of mixed age groups of up to five years old.
George already enjoys plenty of playtime at local parks and on trips to petting zoos, and is often pictured bonding with his mother Kate and grandmother Carole Middleton. Speaking about why the royals chose Westacre nursery -- and not a London-based pre-school near Kensington Palace, a royal aide said that the couple really liked Westacre and thought it was very welcoming and the staff was lovely.
