Prince George of Cambridge
The future King of England strikes a pose outside his new nurseryGetty

When Prince George attended his first day at nursery school on 6 January, he was dropped off by his parents the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge sporting a £30 navy quilted coat from John Lewis and a pint-sized sky blue backpack.

But what exactly did the royal toddler take to his first day of school? According to Hello! Magazine, little George's backpack contained a change of clothes, a healthy snack and "perhaps a favourite toy".

Just a short hop from the family's home of Anmer Hall, the two-year-old prince attends Westacre Montessori School in Norfolk, where he will attend for a few hours a day and will join classmates of different ages, of up to five years old.

A royal source revealed to Hello! magazine: "Both the Duke and Duchess dropped him off and it seems all went well."

The course added: "The couple decided that it would just be nice for him to attend a local nursery school. They really liked Westacre. They thought it was very welcoming and the staff were lovely."

Another royal source told PEOPLE: "They looked at a few schools and they thought it was the best for place George. They felt in terms of education, the feeling, the teachers and the location—the whole thing made it the ideal fit for him."

Unlike his father, George attended his first day of school without much fanfare. When Prince William attended the private Mrs Mynors's Nursery School in Kensington aged three, he was surrounded by photographers. George, meanwhile, only had to pose for his mother Kate, who released to the media two photos of her son.
