Prince William has admitted George is already sick of school and does not want to go any more.
The doting Duke of Cambridge was back at the gates of Thomas’, in Battersea, a district of south west London, seeing the four-year-old to his lessons this morning.
But while the youngster was raring to go on his first day, the honeymoon period appears to be over as he longed to stay home with mom Kate, who is battling morning sickness.
Wills told a fellow parent on a visit to Milton Keynes, a town in southern England: “I just dropped George off and he didn’t want to go.”
Mom-of-two Louise Smith, 31, chatted to the duke as her Bedfordshire home town, a county in the East of England, marked its 50th anniversary.
He stopped to say hello to her daughters Sophia Thomas, three, and Holly Thomas, one.
Louise said: “It was really exciting meeting William.
“He told me he’d just dropped Prince George off at school and he didn’t want to go.
“Sounds a bit like mine really.”
After George’s first day on September 7, Wills revealed the new starters had all taken the anxious moment in their stride while it was the parents who were full of nerves.
But even then he hinted it might not always be plain sailing, saying: “We are all seeing how long that lasts before he doesn’t want to go.”
George seems finally to have had his fill of learning at the exclusive $24,000-a-year day school after kicking up a protest.
Wills admitted things were no longer quite so easy on a visit to Campbell Park in Milton Keynes, where he met proud residents celebrating the town’s 50th birthday.
The prince stopped for a game of table football with users of a mental health service attached to footy club MK Dons’ Sports and Education Trust.
They set up a grudge match for the duke to take part in — MK Dons versus his club Aston Villa.
They cut out little claret and blue paper kits to stick on the players so Will could take the field for his side.
The duke said “fantastic” and joined in, trouncing the opposition 2-0.
He even got mini MK Dons shirts for George and Charlotte — although he warned he is a die hard Villa fan, saying: “There is one rule in my house but that’s it.”
Amy Humphreys, health and fitness leader for the service, said: “We gave him shirts with George and Charlotte written on the back but we didn’t have a blank one yet for the bun.
“He said he’s got one rule in the house which is that Aston Villa is his main team.”
Luke Smith, 18, from Milton Keynes, who played with the prince said: “He noticed the shirts we put on the players and he’s quite good — I scored both of his goals.”
Describing how sport helps tackle mental health problems, he added: “You get a good high from chemicals running through your brain and playing in a team you get a good sense of unity.”
Prince William also stepped foot inside a driverless car and had a ride on Harminder — a life-size mechanical model elephant.
He compared the beast to the mechanical puppet in the stage production of War Horse, which focuses on a cavalry mare fighting in World War One.
Wills said: “It’s very cool. Have you seen War Horse? It’s a very similar sort of thing. Well done guys.”
Less than a week after Prince George started at Thomas, a woman was arrested by royal protection cops for allegedly intruding at the school.
