Two-year-old Prince George started his first day of pre-school on Wednesday. The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge chose to kept the event private unlike during Prince William’s time where the event was greeted with much fanfare.
The heir to the throne started his first day at Westacre Montessori School in Norfolk. The school was close to Prince William and Princess Kate’s home at Anmer Hall. The school only accommodates 29 children at a time and costs £ 5.50 ($55 a day), Daily Mail reported. According to Daily Mail, Prince George was wearing a quilted jacket from John Lewis. Photos of Prince George’s first day in pre-school were released by the Palace, saying that they were snapped by Kate Middleton herself.
The Duke and Duchess did not invite media to chronicle Prince George’s first day in pre-school. Prince William and Princess Kate personally dropped the young prince off to school according to a report from Hello.
Prince William and Princess Kate waited until Prince George finished the day in school and come home before they notify the press, Hello said. This was very different when Prince William was just three years old and had his first day in school.
The Duke of Cambridge started school at Mrs. Mynors’ Nursery School in September 1985. According to Hello there were more than 50 people who were there to witness the milestone. Prince William was instructed to face the reporters and photographers as he made his way to the classroom. The school’s headmistress met him on his way, knelt down to take his hand and led him inside.
According to Palace sources, the Duke and Duchess are aiming at raising their children away from the eyes of the paparazzi. Indeed, Prince George’s first day in school went well and in complete privacy, an aide told the Daily Mail.
