These are our favourite photos of the royal family’s first days at school! When cute little Prince George stepped out in his quilted jacket and rucksack for his first ever day at nursery, he captured the nation’s hearts. He pointed away and smiled as he entered the at nursery and was just little any other little boy. The Prince, who turns three in July this year, is attending the Westacre Montessori School Nursery in Norfolk, which is near the Cambridge’s family home, Anmer Hall. It’s a small place, somewhere where he can interact with other children normally away from the spotlight.
