It is a proud moment for any mum and one that is often chronicled for the family archives.

And today the Duchess of Cambridge did just that as she photographed her eldest, Prince George, as he set off for his first day at nursery in neighbouring Norfolk.

William and Kate took their son to the Westacre Montessori School nursery, near the royal couple’s Norfolk home, Anmer Hall today for the first day of his educational career.

Two pictures taken by the Duchess of her two-year-old have been released to mark the occasion and they show the toddler prince near a large, colourful mural, wearing a winter coat with a small rucksack on his back.

George will attend the nursery while the couple are staying at their Norfolk home but not when they are in residence at Kensington Palace in London.
