4-year-oldPrinceGeorge who has been described as the probable future King of England has officially started school at the age of four.
Britain’s Prince George, the great-grandson of Queen Elizabeth and unarguably the third-in-line to the throne, started school last Thursday, but without his pregnant mother Kate to support him because she is suffering from morning sickness.
George, 4, was taken by his father, Prince William, from their Kensington Palace home to Thomas’s Battersea School in southwest London, which says its most important rule is to “Be Kind.’’
The school charges almost 18,000 pounds (23,490 dollars) per pupil annually.
“We expect our pupils to make impressive progress as a result of their own hard work, the best efforts of their teachers, the judicious support of their parents and the encouragement of their peers,” the school says on its website.
A nervous-looking Prince, wearing a school uniform of dark shorts and a navy jumper with red trim, held his father’s hand as the Head of Lower School, Helen Haslem, escorted the royal duo to his classroom.
His mother Kate missed the occasion due to acute morning sickness and has cancelled other engagements this week after the palace announced on Monday that she was expecting her third child.
Like his parents, George and his younger sister Charlotte, have already appeared on the front covers of magazines around the world and this summer they travelled on official royal tours of Poland and Germany where crowds cheered them.
