Britain’s Prince George started school on Thursday, with the Kensington Palace tweeting photos of his father, Prince William, dropping him off to the Thomas’ Battersea school in London.

George, who was wearing dark shorts and a jumper, held his father’s hand as the Head of Lower School, Helen Haslem, accompanied the two to the four-year-old’s classroom.

Reports said George’s mother, Kate, could not join them as she is pregnant and suffering from severe morning sickness.

George, the third in line to the throne, will attend classes at the school that charges £18,000 a year as fee. The school says its student learn to “be kind” and acquire “confidence, leadership and humility”.
