Prince George Will Be Dropped Off By Prince William and Duchess Kate on His First Day of School

He starts at Thomas's Battersea in early September.

It's hard to believe Prince George is old enough to be heading off to school, but the young royal officially starts classes on September 7, at Thomas's Battersea.

Thomas's was famously described as "the best English education money can buy" by the British Good Schools Guide (it reportedly costs $23,000 a year), but just in case the young royal has any apprehension about his first day, he'll have both his mom and dad right by his side.

"The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, accompanying Prince George, will be met on arrival at the school by the Head of Lower School, Helen Haslem, who will then escort Their Royal Highnesses to Prince George’s reception classroom,” reads a statement released by Kensington Palace about the big day.

Clearly, the Duchess of Cambridge is making good on her promise to the other Thomas's parents. Earlier this year she said, "I may see you at the school gates."

Thomas's requires a uniform, so expect to see the young prince decked out in a button-down shirt, shorts, a navy sweater, and, if he so chooses, a smart-looking white hat, come Thursday.

We're keeping our fingers crossed for an official portrait like the one above taken in January of last year on George's first day at Westacre Montessori School in Norfolk.

Per the Daily Mail, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge will become "full-time working royals" following George's first day of school. (Charlotte will reportedly start nursery in the coming months, possibly at Thomas's.)

Now that Prince Philip has officially retired, William will be attending additional engagements, as will Duchess Kate, once George and Charlotte are both settled.

But People reports that William and Kate hope to drop George off personally "as much as possible."
