It seems the excitement of a brand new school year has already worn off for four-year-old Prince George, who is said to be tired of having to go to school… every single day.
The royal, who attends Thomas’s Battersea just three miles from his Kensington Palace home, appeared quite content walking through the gates for his first day of term.
At the beginning of September, George had his very first day of school, after being dropped off by dad Prince William. And, while the poor little guy looked slightly nervous, the Duke of Cambridge later told visitors at an event that he had settled in well.
Of his first day, William was heard saying, “It went well. There was one other parent who had more of an issue with their children so I was quite pleased I wasn’t the one.”
However, the future King did voice his apprehension that things might not continue to go so swimmingly, saying, “We are all seeing how long that lasts before he doesn’t want to go.”
At a recent event in Milton Keynes, William was seen chatting to a row of parents about his cheeky little young son.
And he revealed his son actually has a new-found reluctance to head to school, saying, “I just dropped George off and he didn’t want to go.”
Prince William has been dropping off his young son to school every day since his 7th September start date, while pregnant Duchess of Cambridge attempts to fight off her intense morning sickness, Hyperemesis Gravidarum.
He also spoke to mother-of-two Louise Smith, 31, who gave an insight into her brief chat with the Prince.
She said, “It was really exciting meeting William. He told me he’d just dropped Prince George off at school and he didn’t want to go. Sounds a bit like mine really.”
So far, Prince George’s life has been an exciting whirlwind of royal tours, official engagements and exciting visits to fun places like the zoo. So it’s no wonder that perhaps he’s getting a little tired of the monotony of school.
Never fear George – there’s only another 13 years of schooling left!
