They grow up so fast! The eldest of the littlest royals, Prince George, arrived to his first day school this morning looking nervous, as every first-timer does. Escorted by his dad Prince William and Head of Lower School Helen Haslem, the 4-year-old prince entered Thomas’s Battersea for his first year of full-time education.

Wearing the Thomas’s uniform — a navy sweater with an embroidered emblem and matching shorts — little George is the epitome of cuteness.

Dad even brought along a matching Thomas’s backpack, which we’re imagining is filled with snacks and love notes from George’s royal parents stuck to a PB&J with the crust cut off.

Prince William took George to school without his wife, Kate Middleton — for good reason. Currently, Princess Kate is struggling with Hyperemesis Gravidarum, an extreme case of morning sickness. The condition only affects 3% of pregnancies and Kate suffered with the same diagnosis during her previous two pregnancies.

But while mom rested, dad did just fine bringing his little one to school. Although, George looked a bit wary. Almost as if he’s thinking, “Dad, are you sure about this whole ‘school thing?'”

“Because we could turn around right now and head back home, no problem,” George is telepathically saying to Prince William.

Hello?!” He yells into the void. “Is there anyone out there who can get me out of this mess?”

Don’t worry, George. The first day of school is scary for everyone. Just remember to play nice and help others, and you’ll be golden. You got this, kid.
