London — The second in line to the British throne has taken a big step up the educational ladder.

Kensington Palace announced Prince George started nursery school on Wednesday, a milestone for the young future king.

Prince William and his wife Kate marked the occasion by releasing two photographs of the very cute two-and-a-half-year-old outside the school building. Kate took the photos showing George in a blue jacket with a backpack.

The royal couple had earlier announced he would be attending Westacre Montessori School in Norfolk, 110 miles (180 kilometers) north of London.

The school has said he will receive the same treatment as other pupils.
