I agree, it was a lovely surprise and to be honest we as royal watchers didn't really miss out too much. In fact, I think it's much better to have photos taken by the Duchess of Cambridge and released in the way they did because it sort of makes things more personal as if we are part of it - without the media acting as middleman.

The media did the usual George vs William picture.

Now if they can tell me if George had on red shoes and red shorts.

Too bad no pictures of the shoes nor the clothes underneath the coat.

According to earlier stories, the parents remain with the child on the first day.

Now that he has started schools, a few photographers will be stationed near the school so expect papped pictures.

The BBC said last night that William and Kate would be pleased George's nursery was sited in a private road, not a public one.

Paps would stand out like a sore thumb outside Westacre Montessori School Nursery in Norfolk

I think the only way to get photos would be 'long lens' and that's just not kosher with the public.

I can't imagine any British newspaper publishing long lens photos of Prince George coming or going to school.

Its one thing to photograph Kate shopping on the high street and another to publish photos of a toddler going to school.

British papers may not publish the long lens photos of George, but papers outside of Britain certainly have. They've been posted in this thread.

Kindly note, 'private road/s' have a very distinct meaning in English law. I hope that this toddler, who may be King one day, is allowed to be a toddler. I hope he enjoys his time at pre-school and that he and the other children there are left alone to be children.

What does private road mean? Does it mean private property in which people not invited are trespassing?

I don't see the problem. The school has had a private road before George enrolled. I guess it was done so to protect any child attending that school.

Alot of English country farms have private roads. Private roads have different levels of protection when it comes to Trespass law, it is my understanding.

Editors' Code of Practice

6. *Children

i) All pupils should be free to complete their time at school without unnecessary intrusion.

ii) They must not be approached or photographed at school without permission of the school authorities.

iii) Children under 16 must not be interviewed or photographed on issues involving their own or another child’s welfare unless a custodial parent or similarly responsible adult consents.

iv) Children under 16 must not be paid for material involving their welfare, nor parents or guardians for material about their children or wards, unless it is clearly in the child's interest.

v) Editors must not use the fame, notoriety or position of a parent or guardian as sole justification for publishing details of a child's private life.

Richard Palmer basically confirmed on Twitter George won't be harassed by British papers while at school because it violates editors' code of conduct

Dear Marty91charmed, yes I suspect that the pre-school did have a private road prior to PG enrolling. It would no doubt be attractive to his parents as it should, my understanding is up the levels of protection from uninvited visitors with or without camera's.

I have no doubt that George's parent have chosen this isolated school for that reason! I also hope that the security will be there to protect George but also that they will do is as discreetely as they can in order to not distress other children, who need as much quiet as George.

I would guess the security detail is not actually in the classroom but outside it and really kids of this age don't pay much attention to a couple other adults standing around.

I was pleasantly surprised to see these new photos of little George. I also agree that they were a wise move from the Cambridges, it's better for them that we got official photos of him going to nursery rather than paparazzi ones.

George is adorable and I love his outfit. I hope he had a fun first day!
I think he looks more like Catherine than William, particularly around the eyes, but I can sort of understand why some think he looks like William.

When Lady Diana Spencer became engaged to HRH The Prince of Wales...or was the antics of the now Duke of York ("Randy Andy" - remember him)...or the antics of Princess Margaret (Group Capt. Peter Townsend ring a bell?)...many of Prince Philip's choices of words (informing the Chinese they have slitty eyes) or...........

It went farther back than Diana; Diana's celebrity status just brought it all into overdrive

It happened post-WWI.

The Queen Mother did it knowingly, marketing out her daughters and the Prince of Wales' many affairs delighted the press.

Then Margaret herself assumed celebrity status in the 50's and 60's, followed for a short period by Andrew.

After 1981 it was all Diana and her descendants.

This is not to say that the royals embraced the idea that they were celebrities, but some of the above did more than others.

They're royals, but they live in a celebrity culture. Royals have always been famous though.
