Prince George is the Cutest Nursery School Student There Ever Was

Prince George may be only two, but the itty-bitty heir has already completed a number of tasks that will look impressive on his Eton College application. He traveled to both Australia and New Zealand on a state visit, posed for a portrait by Mario Testino and became the unofficial spokesman for children's knee socks. Now, he's checked off another studious accomplishment — starting nursery school. 

On Wednesday, George arrived for his first day at the Westacre Montessori School in Norfolk. He dressed for the part with a cozy, quilted jacket and pint-sized backpack — a dapper look, but one that won't make him stand out too much from his less royal classmates. He's here to learn just like any other two-year-old in the United Kingdom, okay? And rather than hire someone like Testino to capture this milestone moment, the Duchess of Cambridge took these photographs herself. They're just a regular family who, as it turns out, will one day govern the country that has the world's fifth-highest GDP.

They grow up so fast.
