Prince George of Cambridge attended his first day at nursery in Norfolk, eastern England.
The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge took two-year-old George to his first day at Westacre Montessori School on Wednesday. The British monarchy released two photographs to mark the little prince’s first day on nursery school. The photos were captured by his mother, Princess Kate. In one of the images, George was seen standing in front of the mural on the outside of the nursery building.
The little prince was clad in a quilted navy blue jacket from John Lewis that sells for around $50, according to People magazine. He also has his blue rucksack on his back.
According to BBC, the school is close to the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge’s home at Anmer Hall.
The Telegraph wrote, citing some royal sources, Prince George’s first day in school “went well” and with no signs of tears or tantrums as he arrived.
The young prince will attend the nursery while the royal couple are staying at their Norfolk home but not when they are in residence at Kensington Palace in London, BBC reported.
The early learning at the Westacre Montessori School was rated good by Ofsted after an inspection in June 2015. It costs £5.50 per hour or £33 a day to attend the nursery.
The school follows the principles of Italian doctor Maria Montessori who developed liberal approach of teaching, in which it encourages children to take responsibility for their own learning and act independently, ABC noted.
The young prince father, Prince William, was the first senior royal to go to nursery and not start his education in a palace.
Prince George’s low-profile first day in school as in contrast to his father’s first day at nursery. When William entered school for the first time, TV cameras and journalists were invited to record the moment and were even allowed inside to film his classroom, The Telegraph noted.
