Prince George’s adoring subjects-to-be have been graced with another two photos of the tiny prince. Captured by his mother, they document George’s first day at nursery school.

The first shot looked like it was lifted straight from a toddler fashion catalogue.

But the second had more action. Prince George had noticed a beautiful mural on the wall beside him, and he pointed so everyone else knew about it.

Of course! George’s grandfather is a grade-A pointer. Send Charles anywhere and he’ll undoubtedly point at something that takes his fancy.

Here he is pointing at a dead fish.

We sincerely hope Prince George sees fit to keep this cherished royal tradition alive for future generations.
