Britain's Duchess of Cambridge thought Prince George was very "brave" on his first day of nursery.
The 34-year-old royal told Arthur Coxon, whose father fought in the Gallipoli campaign, that she was incredibly proud of her two-year-old son, who had "thoroughly enjoyed" the day.
He said: "They asked what my connection with the association was and I congratulated Kate on the lovely photos of Prince George.
"She said he went off to school bravely as anything and thoroughly enjoyed it."
Duchess Catherine and her husband Prince William - who also have eight-month-old daughter Charlotte together - met the retired Royal Navy lieutenant commander at a service at St. Mary Magdalene Church in Sandringham over the weekend.
Meanwhile, the young Prince - who was photographed by his mother as they made their way to Westacre Montessori school in King's Lynn, Norfolk on Wednesday (06.01.16) - is reportedly going to be attending the school for a "handful of hours per day".
A source said at the time: "He's going to be attending part time for a handful of hours per day. Both the Duke and Duchess dropped him off today and it seems all went well."
