Kensington Palace releases photo of Prince Louis as he arrives for first day of nursery school

Kensington Palace has released a new photo of Prince Louis to celebrate his third birthday and mark his first day of nursery school.

Duchess of Cambridge and Prince William’s youngest son is celebrating his third birthday on Friday.

The photograph was taken at Kensington Palace by the duchess, shortly before Louis set off for Willcocks Nursery School for the first time on Wednesday.

Smartly dressed in shorts, a shirt and a jumper, he sits on a red Frog bicycle with a rucksack on his back.

Prince William and Catherine were said to be “delighted” to share the update.

According to the BBC, Prince Louis will be attending the Willcocks Nursery School, which his sister Princess Charlotte also attended.

Louis, who is fifth in line to the throne, is the latest member of the Royal Family to attend a private nursery school in a tradition that began with his father.

Prince William went to the Minors Nursery School, minutes from Kensington Palace in Notting Hill Gate, west London, in 1985.

He was the first prospective heir to the throne to attend a private nursery, in a move reported at the time to have been influenced by his mother, Diana, Princess of Wales, who worked at a nursery school before her marriage to the Prince of Wales.
