All eyes were on the future king to be, as he began his journey at Thomas Battersea, a fee-paying independent school in South London.


Besides his big day, the other question everyone wanted answered was if Kate would be able to make it given her severe morning sickness she has been having.

The woman in question was teacher Ms. Helen Haslem, who is the head of the lower school at Thomas Battersea.

Maybe she was there to make sure he was all smiles for the day ahead and to not worry that his mom couldn’t be there!

George looked dapper and handsome in his school uniform in between Ms. Haslem and his very proud father.

Ms. Haslem’s role with George is to see him through the early years of his schooling at Thomas's Battersea up until year two. Then the royal will transition into the middle school.
