Duchess of Cambridge ‘could miss Prince George’s first day at school due to morning sickness’



The Duchess of Cambridge may miss taking Prince George to his first day at school with the expectant mother still suffering from severe morning sickness, the Standard understands.

Prince William and Kate were both expected to drop off their eldest child George when he starts at Thomas’s school in Battersea on Thursday morning.

But the Duchess, who is pregnant with the couple’s third child, has already cancelled two royal engagements this week while suffering from hyperemesis gravidarum – a severe form of morning sickness.

She cancelled a visit to the Hornsey Road Children’s Centre in London on Monday and was also pulled out of visit to a new Grenfell Tower support centre with William and Harry on Tuesday.

The Standard understands Kate may now miss Prince George’s first school run as she may not be well enough to make the journey.

On Tuesday. William said Kate was well, but admitted: “There’s not much sleep going on at the moment.”

He said: “We need Catherine to get over this first bit and then we can start celebrating. It’s always a bit anxious to start with, but she’s well.”

Prince George and his parents are due to be greeted by Helen Haslem, head of lower school, on their arrival at the school gates.

They will then be escorted to his reception classroom.

The young prince will be dressed in a smart new uniform, comprising a navy v-neck pullover, matching Bermuda-style shorts, long red socks and black shoes.

His new school, where fees cost from £17,604 a year, has been described by the Good Schools Guide as: “A big, busy, slightly chaotic school for cosmopolitan parents who want their children to have the best English education money can buy.

“That is what they want and, to a large degree, that is what they get.”

George and his classmates will be taught a range of subjects and activities from ballet and art to drama, French, music and physical education.

Kate has already said she is not sure her son “has any idea what’s going to hit him” when he starts school.
