George is adjusting 'very well' to nursery school – and he knows what he wants to be when he grows up!

At his village school in Norfolk, the little prince is simply known as “George”. He's also decided what he wants to be when he grows up  –  and it's not king.

He’s third in line to the throne of England, and probably the world’s best-known two-year-old.

 But at his village school in Norfolk, the little prince is simply known as “George”. He's also decided what he wants to be when he grows up  –  and it's not king. Now in his sixth week at Westacre Montessori near his family home, Anmer Hall, George "leaves his title at the classroom door" when he hangs up his coat each day, Time reports. A royal insider confirmed that no one stands on ceremony for the blue blood at the little school -- his classmates, teachers and all the school staff are just to call him by his first name.

"It has been a very happy time for them as a family," the source told US magazine People. "Prince George is settling in the nursery school very well. And the family is very grateful for the widespread goodwill they have received from around the world.”

Settling in is important at any nursery schools, but in a Montessori environment it is particularly so, Louise Livingston, director of training at the Maria Montessori Institute, where many of the teachers at George’s school have studied, said. "Children need to be helped to adjust to the freedom of choice that will be offered to them," she explained. "They will be encouraging him – right from the minute he walks across the doorstep – to do things for himself."

Clearly George's education is already going well -- in fact, the toddler has already chosen a future career, his mom the Duchess of Cambridge revealed.

At a recent royal appearance to mark the 75th anniversary of the Royal Air Force Air Cadets, she told nineteen-year-old cadet Lucinda Conder that she had shown her son pictures of Spitfire fighter planes, and he's "obsessed." George now considers himself a future air cadet, Conder told reporters after chatting with Kate. Of course, it's good news for both Kate (34) and William (33) that their first-born is settling in well.

There's still 8-month-old Princess Charlotte at home who needs taking care of,  not to mention the very busy schedules both the duke and duchess have to contend with at the moment. William is reportedly focusing on his job as a pilot at the East Anglian Air Ambulance, while Kate has had a string of appearances lined up for the UK's Children's Mental Health Week.

Royal appearances have taken a backseat for William, as he juggles official duties with his job, something he has found "very rewarding," the royal source said.

"He was able to strike a balance between official work and in particular, supporting the Queen, with his job as a pilot." Royal watchers can expect to see the second-in-line to the throne on more royal appearances in the UK's spring. In the mean time, Kate has stepped up to fill the gap in a big way. The mom-of-two stole the headlines at her first engagement as Honorary Air Commandant of the Air Cadets to mark the 75th anniversary year of the Air Training Corps.

It as here she revealed George's newfound love of planes.

The relentless pace won't be letting up soon for George and Charlotte's parents, as they plan their upcoming tour of India and Bhutan and the various duties and apappearances that will be required of them  in the run-up to Queen Elizabeth's 90th birthday celebration.
