Kate had planned to accompany them but cancelled. “Unfortunately the Duchess of Cambridge remains unwell,” a Kensington Palace statement said.

George arrived on time for his first day at Thomas’s Battersea school in south London. He was met by Helen Haslem, a senior teacher who introduced him to the other students.
