Prince George reportedly headed back to school today, but this time, there are no adorable photos to commemorate the occasion. Kensington Palace did not release any portraits of the five-year-old starting classes at St. Thomas’s Battersea like they did last year.
The reason has to do with the young royal’s privacy, Town & Country reports. As royal correspondent Emily Nash told Hello!, “Prince George’s time at school is private and although the Duke and Duchess shared an image from his first day at primary school last year, they won’t do it every year.”
Sources told People a similar story. The site reports that Prince William and Kate Middleton have “always made a point of treating school as a private area, so that George and Charlotte can grow up in as pressure-free an atmosphere as possible.”
The Palace has released back-to-school portraits of Prince George for the past two years. In 2017, his first time attending St. Thomas’s Battersea, the royal tot and his dad posed for a photo in front of Kensington Palace before heading out for the big day.
Photographers were also present to capture George’s entrance with his father. (Kate was home sick with acute morning sickness, as she was still pregnant with Prince Louis at the time.)
And in 2016, the Palace released an image of Prince George’s first day at nursery school.
Princess Charlotte also got a mini photo shoot for her first day at nursery school in January this year. The fourth in line for the throne flashed the cutest poses in her little red coat and pink backpack.

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are very pleased to share two photographs of Princess Charlotte at Kensington Palace this morning. The images were taken by The Duchess shortly before Princess Charlotte left for her first day of nursery at the Willcocks Nursery School.
