She was taken to the school gates by father Lord Frederick Windsor

Prince George arrives for his first day of school at Thomas's Battersea, a well-regarded private day school in London.

The Duchess of Cambridge was unable to attend because she is still suffering from severe morning sickness due to her third pregnancy.

Ben Thomas, former headmaster of Thomas's Battersea and current principal of Thomas's London Day Schools, insisted George will be treated like everyone else.

Prince George is met by Helen Haslem, head of Thomas's Battersea's lower school.

Kensington Palace confirmed the news to the MailOnline, saying: "Unfortunately The Duchess of Cambridge remains unwell, and will not be able to accompany Prince George on his first day of school".

The palace also shared several throwbacks of Princes William and Harry happily heading off to their first days of school, accompanied by mom Diana in the '80s.

Following in the footsteps of his fashion-influencing family members, Prince George is having an alleged eponymous "effect" on style trends - and is reportedly skyrocketing the sales of shorts for school-aged children in England, according to a new survey.

Then, with William holding one hand and Ms Haslem the other, he walked inside.

George is the eldest child of the royal couple. George's parents have said they want him to have as normal a childhood as possible, and palace officials tried to discourage news organizations from sending photographers to the school Thursday, instead offering pool photos of George's arrival. "We are going to try to make this a really happy, safe and secure time", he said.

He has been placed in a class of 21 pupils - one of three reception groups that are connected by a folding "carousel" door which is opened to allow group play three times a week. The school fees cost from £17,604 a year.

Another commented: "Prince George looks very smart in his school uniform". According to its website, its curriculum includes art, ballet, drama and French.
