Prince George’s new school breaks a historic royal tradition! 9/09/2017 Claire Murrihy

© Provided by Associated News Millions of children undertook their first day at school this week but it’s fair to say that one little boy was the centre of the media’s attention.

Images of Prince George’s first day at Thomas’s Battersea School in London this week were caught on camera on Thursday and beamed across the world within in minutes.

However, what some people may not be aware of is that the prince’s new primary school is a co-ed school.

This break in royal tradition means Princess Charlotte will hopefully join her brother at the same school.

Handy for the Duke and Duchess when they’re doing the school run!

Unfortunately, Kate was unable to join her son on his first day at school as she is pregnant with her third child and suffering from severe morning sickness.
