How cute does he look?! www.theguardian.com/uk-news/2016/jan/06/prince-george-westacre-montessori-nursery-norfolk-duchess-cambridge

I would have thought they'd want to keep the name of the nursery quiet.

Really cute pictures on Twitter last night. He is a lovely boy- nice and cuddly.

wonder if I will bump into them hmm...

They are probably taking advantage of the free nursery care now available for some 2 year olds. Subject to status of course.

There is no point in trying to keep Prince George's entry to nursery school and the name of the school quiet because it would be found out very quickly and the paparazzi would be hiding in bushes with their telephoto lens to photograph him.

His parents have an agreement with the reputable British press for them to respect the privacy of their children and not buy paparazzi photographs in return for receiving reasonable information about the children and progress photos. The photographs just released, taken by the Duchess of Cambridge, shows just how well the system works. The Prince started nursery just like other children with only his proud parents to photograph him.

It's not the press that worries me but the terrorists - presumably there will be some sort of security when he is there. What a world!

What a lovely looking little chap.

They must be very proud of him.

Good security is essential for all the Royal family. Remember there were several attempts to kill Queen Victoria and a church near me has a tablet on the wall giving thanks for the preservation of the life of King George III when a mentally ill young woman endeavoured to stab him to death.

Gillybob There is only bout 15 hrs free nursery care for three yr olds unless the two yrs olds have special needs or come from a problem family disadvantaged background. grin
I don't think the Cambridges quite fit that group.

Hopefully he'll enjoy himself and make friends.

I think the strategy of giving the press approved photo shoots of the children and then demanding as far as possible restraint from the press is a good idea.
Yes I know they are bound to be in the public eye but not to get a chance to a good bit of privacy is very unfair to anyone who ever it is being harrassed.

(Apart from the likes of arogant gits like Sett Blatter and Donald Trump.)

My neighbours said this morning - so you are having another Prince or Princess then?! They said Kate is pregnant again- any news of that?

jinglbellsfrocks Fri 08-Jan-16 13:23:40

If only all nursery schools were of the quality of Montessori. Lucky little boy.
(He is very sweet)

jinglbellsfrocks Fri 08-Jan-16 13:24:39

That could be the foreign paparazzi again granjura. hmm

gillybob Fri 08-Jan-16 13:31:01

That's why I thought they might qualify Nelliemoser hmm

She would be in hospital again due other sickness I assume.

jinglbellsfrocks Fri 08-Jan-16 14:21:43

Her body might be used to pregnancy now. I suffered horrible sickness with first two. Nothing at all with third.

NotTooOld Fri 08-Jan-16 16:25:25

Nelliemoser - your last sentence made me laugh. grin

I think it is Kate's birthday today, so I hope she has a lovely day with the family.
