Prince George’s First Day of School Pictures Are Royally Adorable

Well, one good thing about being a royal parent: you know there will be plenty of first day of school pictures for your little one!

Prince George started school full-time today, guided by his dad, Prince William. Poor Kate had to stay home, of course, because she is still suffering from acute morning sickness from her third pregnancy. The four-year-old is going to Thomas’s school in Battersea.

They were met by the Head of Lower School, before William took Prince George inside to his reception classroom.

That outfit, though! Be still my preppy-loving heart.

Naturally, the press is reflecting on the day Princess Diana took her little boy to his first day of school at Wetherby School in west London in January 1987….

So sweet that young man has grown up to be a hands-on father.
