Once again, Prince George's style has caused a frenzy online. The toddler arrived to his first day of preschool on Jan. 6 wearing an adorable navy quilted jacket, sparking many to ask where his new duds came from. It soon emerged that the garment is from one of Kate's favourite stores – John Lewis.
It was the Prince George Pieces Twitter account who got to the bottom of the fashion query. "George wears a navy @johnlewisretail jacket in the new images taken by Kate!," a tweet from the account read.
The $60 quilted jacket, which is sold out due to it being from the department store's AW13 collection, features a hood and trendy elbow patches. The future King wore the classic design with a light blue backpack, now just leaving fans to speculate where the bag is from.
A royal source told HELLO! magazine: "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."
The $70-a-day preschool in King's Lynn is housed in a former chapel and 85 per cent of children there receive financial help to cover the fees. It accommodates pupils aged two to five and was rated "good" in an Ofsted report last June.
When William and Kate's choice was announced last month, a spokesman for the school said: "We are looking forward to welcoming George to our nursery where he will get the same special experience as all of our children."
The Prince, who turns two-and-a-half this month, started school rather discreetly compared to how his father spent his first day of preschool in September 1985.
More than 100 pairs of eyes were on William when he arrived at Mrs. Mynors' Nursery School, dressed in a stripy jumper, red shorts and red shoes.
Two hours after the morning session, William was picked up and brought back home to his parents. Head teacher Mrs Mynor said her new student "liked it" and it seems the little Prince did. As he left, he showed photographers a finger puppet of a mouse he had made all by himself.
