Prince George is officially a student, as the little boy started his first day at school on Thursday. Naturally, his grandfather, Prince Charles, was curious to know how his first day was. When an editor for ITV News told Prince Charles that his grandson looked, “a bit anxious,” Charles brushed it off.
He said, “Poor old thing, he’s being left there without his parents, so he has to get used to them being away.”
With that said, Charles said the experience is good for the youngster, as it’s character building.
Charles said it was good for him.
“It’s character building, I suppose.”
The editor asked Charles if he had any words of wisdom for the four-year-old boy, and the 68-year-old Prince cheekily responded, “of course not. He wouldn’t have taken it from me at that age.”
According to the Duke Of Cornwall, when a child is four-years-old, they don’t worry so much about going to school, it’s merely a different experience to which they grow accustomed.
They only start to become anxious as they grow older and more cognizant of their surroundings.
Lucky for the four-year-old, Prince William – his father – was there to walk him up to the school on his first day.
However, Kate Middleton – George’s mother, who is pregnant with their third baby – had to miss out on her son’s first day due to Hyperemesis Gravidarum, a condition often attributed to pregnant women which is characterized by severe nausea.
As for Prince William, he wasn’t so worried about George when he saw another parent dealing with a troublesome child. He claimed, “so, there was one other parent who had more of an issue with their kids, so I was quite pleased I wasn’t the one!” We’re happy George’s day went well!
