PRINCE George has arrived for his first day at school.  George and his dad the Duke of Cambridge were greeted by Helen Haslem, head of lower school, when they arrived at the school gates before being escorted to his reception classroom.

The prince, thought to be one of the youngest in his year, is expected to have a gentle introduction to what is likely to be a tiring first term at school.


Along with his classmates, he will spend the day getting to know teachers, adults and other children as well as completing the important task of finding his classroom peg.

George was dressed in a smart new uniform, comprising a navy v-neck pullover, matching Bermuda-style shorts, long red socks and black shoes.Mum Kate was unable to join him as she is suffering from severe morning sickness during her pregnancy with her third child.  On Tuesday, a day after it was announced they are expecting their third child, William said Kate was well but admitted: "There's not much sleep going on at the moment."
