Kate has gorgeous hair so maybe she passed all that along.

There is some comfort though in having the balding gene. Its been said that when God creates heads, he covers up those that aren't quite perfect.

No surprise. Sophie Rhys-Jones started Louise and James riding when they were little too. A Windsor tradition.

What a stupid headline. What does one have to do with the other?

None of the British media predicted that George would be headed to school so soon. I guess all their "insiders" let them down.

I just wish they wouldn't have named the school. It makes it much easier for stalkerazzi and people with nefarious plans.

I think the name of the school would have leaked out anyway.

Obviously big news in the UK. Prince George is already trending on Twitter

Peter Hunt @BBCPeterHunt
Prince William was the first senior royal to go to nursery and not start his education in a palace.

Watch out world! Here comes George! I think this is going to be one happy child going off to school and then coming home and telling his sister all about how his day was. I'm also quite pleased to see that the Cambridges have opted out for the Montessori type of school which is quite different from the normal, everyday type of nursery school. If I had a choice back when my kids were small, I would have loved to have sent them to a school like this. It sounds like its going to be perfect with a child that is eager to explore like our Curious George is.

Prince George is continuing a royal tradition, but not one that is long established.

The Queen was educated at home and relied on her nanny, Crawfie, to take her on educational trips - including a journey on the London tube.

Prince Charles did go to school, but his nursery was a palace room containing a blackboard, a desk and a governess.

It was at his mother's insistence that Prince William was exposed to children of his own age when he started at Mrs Mynors' school.

George appears to be a very active and boisterous child and I'm sure he will love his nursery school. It's ideal in terms of location, only ten miles away. I'm not so sure security-wise and it's almost certain there will be photographers hanging around, at least at first.

Posts about the new photo of the Cambridges have been moved to the General News for the Cambridge Family Part 2: January 2015 thread. A few posts in this thread that discussed both the photo and George going to nursery school have been copied over to the other thread, and then edited here to remove that portion.

interesting choice for nursery for george. it´s quite thrifty choice apparently at only 33 pounds per day. the montessori system is apparently quite a reknowned one too.
i guess they will relocate full time to anmer hall now that george is at nursery?

I thought George would have started school later in 2016, probably September/October, so this was a lovely surprise! It certainly is a relief for Nanny Maria too... I don't know much about nursery/kindergartens in Uk, but do the children usually attend a 9 to 5 day at school? Or can they attend only in the morning? I thought 33 pounds per day is way too much, but again, I don't know how much nursery school fare in England. It seems the school is well secluded and I wonder if they'll let the media film at least the first day of school. I think they should, anyway. I read the school is pretty exclusive: why do they allow only 29 children to attend? Is it because it's a small village?

From my own experience Nursery school is usually a half day school. In the UK you can start nursery quite young but Kindergarten if I remember begins at 3 or 4 years. Where they live is quite a village

It looks like a small place, 29 is about all they can hold probably.

I think I used to pay about $500 a month for three days a week for my kids, 8-2 pm, so the price is about right I think.

Thank you! I asked because in italy nurseries, kindergarten etc cost much less and 30 pounds a day made an impact!
