In what comes as a reminder of how time flies, England’s Prince George, whose arrival as the royal baby was celebrated globally, attended his first day at pre-school, and it was adorable.

Just like any other family, the royal family was excited about the little prince stepping out to explore the world, as the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge shared two pictures of George on his first day at a nursery.

The elder child of the Duke of Cambridge is attending the Westacre Montessori School Nursery in Norfolk, and while most of the royal family did not attend Nursery, George’s father William was the first to be sent to a Nursery by his mother Diana.
