  • Prince William has commented on Prince George’s first day at his new school, saying ‘it went well’.

    It was a big day for little Prince George yesterday, who started primary school at Thomas’s Battersea.

    And thanks to his dad William, who was there to accompany him on his first day, now we know how the prince found his new school.

    Speaking to England Under-20s’ head coach, Paul Simpson, at an event he hosted at Kensington Palace for the football team, William revealed George’s first day went ‘well’, and that thankfully he didn’t have to deal with any tantrums.

    ‘It went well. There was one other parent who had more of an issue with their children – so I was quite pleased I wasn’t the one. It was really nice actually. It’s a nice school’, he explained.

    To commemorate George’s first day, Kensington Palace released an adorable picture of William and his son at their front door just before they set off for school.

    The cute snap is missing mum Kate, who didn’t accompany William in the school run for George’s first day as previously planned.

    The Duchess, who’s pregnant with their third child, sadly missed her little one’s first day because she’s suffering from severe morning sickness.

    An official statement read: ‘Unfortunately The Duchess of Cambridge remains unwell, and will not be able to accompany Prince George on his first day of school.’

    ‘The Duke of Cambridge will drop off Prince George this morning as planned.’

    George’s grandfather, Prince Charles, also commented on his grandson’s first day at school according to ITV, saying school is ‘good’ for children, and that it builds character.

    Charles also added that he ‘hoped’ George, who, according to The Sun, will go by George Cambridge when he’s in class, would be happy at his new school: ‘At that age you don’t worry quite so much about going to school as you do when you get a bit older, and the business of meeting new people’, the 68-year-old added.
