Kensington Palace released photos of Britain's young Prince George arriving for his first day at nursery school on Wednesday.
Prince George is pictured wearing a baby blue backpack and pointing at a colorful mural outside the nursery.
The palace announced in December that George would be attending the Westacre Montessori School Nursery in Norfolk, 110 miles north of London.
The prince, who is nearly 2½ years old, has been raised largely out of the public eye.
The nursery said in December it looked forward to welcoming George and said "he will get the same special experience as all of our children."
Last month, the palace released a family photo showing Prince William, his wife Kate, and their children Prince George and Princess Charlotte. The photo was taken in October in the palace gardens.
