Before Prince George can rule his country, he’s got to conquer his ABC’s! The son of Prince William and Duchess Catherine of Cambridge, who is third in line for the throne, attended his first day of nursery school in Norfolk, England, Wednesday.
The proud parents of 2-year-old George captured a few images of their eldest child arriving for his first day at Westacre Montessori School, which they shared through the official Kensington Palace Twitter account.

The pictures show how excited little George is as he begins a new chapter in his life as a student. But a smile wasn’t the only thing that the sweet tot was sporting on his first day! Prince George took a tip from his fashionable mom, dressing to the nines as he marked the beginning of his educational career.
Prince George wore a dark blue quilted jacket with a red flannel lining and suede elbow patches as well as a powder blue backpack.
It was first revealed that Prince George would be attending the Norfolk nursery – a chapel that was converted into a school – when Kensington Palace issued a press release confirming the news in December. The Westacre Montessori School responded to the exciting announcement stating: “We are looking forward to welcoming George to our nursery where he will get the same special experience as all of our children.”
CNN reported that Prince George is following in the footsteps of his father who also attended a Montessori nursery when he was a child. However, Prince William's former school, the private Mrs. Mynors’ Nursery, was located in London.
