Prince George Clutches His Father's Hand As He Arrives For His First Day At School

Nervous little Prince George arrived for his first day at school this morning with only his father, Prince William, after his pregnant mother, the Duchess of Cambridge, found herself bed-bound due to acute morning sickness.

The four-year-old future king looked very smart in his new uniform, which included a blue official school jumper with red logo, blue Bermuda shorts and blue socks with laceless shoes.

He was driven to £20,000-a-year Thomas's Battersea, in south west London, from Kensington Palace strapped into a child seat in the rear of the family Range Rover.

William held his son's hand tightly as they approached the door - 30 years after his mother Diana did the same for him on his first day.

George shook hands with Helen Haslem, head of the lower school, before the third in line to the throne, clutching his daddy's hand and her's, was shown to his new reception year classroom.

His proud mother Kate, 35, had hoped to be there but was simply too poorly, as she is suffering from Hyperemesis Gravidarum, which can cause sufferers to vomit up to 50 times a day.

The prince will be known as George Cambridge to his classmates and while he is attending one of London's top schools it is less formal than Wetherby prep in Notting Hill, which was attended by his father and uncle Harry.
