Prince George’s first day at school

They grow up so fast! The royal youngster has enjoyed his first taste of the school room as his proud mum captured the milestone moment

Seeing your first child off to school is a special day for any parent, and yesterday, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge were both there to see two-year-old Prince George take his first steps into the classroom.
The royal tot is enrolled at a local Montessori nursery called Westacre, which is located near the family’s home of Anmer Hall in Norfolk.
The Montessori style of education was developed by Italian physician Maria Montessori and is based on accommodating a child's natural physical, social and psychological development. Both William and Catherine attended Montessori schools as children.

The proud parents dropped their adorable son off at the school gates, and the Duchess - who has also snapped official photos of her daughter, Princess Charlotte - made sure to commemorate the big day with her camera in two photos that have been released to the public.
Dressed warmly in a navy quilted jacket and a light blue backpack, George looked ready to tackle his newest challenge. He is believed to have spent just a couple of hours at the school in order to help him transition more easily into the lessons.
“It all went well,” a source told The Daily Mail of the big day.
Earlier this week, William spoke about how the experience of fatherhood had changed his outlook on life, leaving him "more emotional" – and this latest milestone is sure to be another one for the record books!
