Britain's Prince William accompanies his son Prince George on his first day of school at Thomas's school in Battersea, London, September 7, 2017. 

Britain’s Prince George, the great-grandson of Queen Elizabeth and third-in-line to the throne, started school today but without his pregnant mother Kate to support him because she is suffering from severe morning sickness.

George, 4, was taken by his father, Prince William, from their Kensington Palace home to Thomas’s Battersea school in southwest London, which states its most important rule is to “Be Kind” and charges almost 18,000 pounds (US$23,580) per pupil per year.

“We expect our pupils to make impressive progress as a result of their own hard work, the best efforts of their teachers, the judicious support of their parents and the encouragement of their peers,” the school’s website states.

A nervous-looking George, wearing a school uniform of dark shorts and a navy jumper with red trim, held his father’s hand as the Head of Lower School, Helen Haslem, escorted the royal duo to his classroom.

The palace announced on Monday his mother Kate missed the occasion due to acute morning sickness and that she was expecting her third child.
