Like most little kids, George seems so happy to be going off to school as to them it is a grand adventure. Its a big day in a child's life and I'm happy both William and Kate both went with him for the first day.

What I am also liking is the lack of media surrounding the event as William's first day was widely publicized. I think Kate is onto something here with releasing her own photographs. Not only does she get to practice and develop her talent (her two pictures of George at school rival any of the professionals in the article), but this way it is also putting a bit of control on what photos of her children are released to the public.

I would imagine also that Charlotte and Lupo and anyone else with ears was regaled by wondrous stories about school when George returned home.

Plus it makes George's going to school like any other kids- just mum taking a few photos.

A big day for Prince George and delightful pictures! He's growing up fast and his wave hair is cute.

He has only a passing resemblance to Will, IMO. The entire shape of his face is completely different, and his features are heavier. I am still convinced he favors Granddad Mike.

Still the Prince of Cheeks!

I do wish we would have gotten a picture of William & Catherine taking him to school.

In addition it protects the privacy of George's classmates and their families along with the school staff's too. To be honest if my child was attending the same school, I'd like to know how the media's presence would be regulated so that children and families can go about their day in peace. ( Speaking as a parent and an educator, I've never liked how some members of the press station themselves outside of school gates trying to snap a photo of public figures children. Living in Southern California, this is an issue for the children and families of film, tv and music industry figures.)

That was my reaction too. He's looking more and more like his Papa.

As much as I would have loved to see a snapshot of all three, it would have turned the attention to Catherine's appearance. Today was about George, so it's natural that the focus was on him.

The Mail's side by side comparison of Prince George pointing w/ his grandfather Prince Charles doing the same caused me to chuckle - exactly the same gesture, even down to the left hand in coat pocket!

Side by Side of William and George. Upper part of the face (eye sockets/nose) very similar to Williams..lower part of the face is Michael, he has a wider more square face like Michael's too.

I think Catherine was very wise to take and release these pictures .... one-upmanship done very well. Recently Anne Hathaway did the same by posting pictures of herself in a bikini (pregnant) after seeing someone taking her picture. George is certainly adorable, very handsome little boy.

I actually think George still looks more like the Middleton side of the family, with the exception of his blonde hair. His little nose might resemble his grandfather Mike Middleton's or become more like William's as he grows, however. I'm sure he had a wonderful time in those few hours and is looking forward to more!

Our little Prince Charming made it onto many of tomorrow's of front pages.

The Telegraph, The Sun, The Times, The Daily Mail, Metro and The Daily Express all have a fp with George.

I reckon George looks more like American comedian Louie Anderson than any member of his family. http://vignette2.wikia.nocookie.net/...20130521030411

Prince George is too cute! I love that we get to see his naturally wavy hair in this picture. I feel like his hair is often "tamed" for other more formal pictures or in his rare official events.
