Morning-sick Kate Middleton missed her little Prince George's first day at school on Thursday, and the future king of England had to be escorted to class just by his father Prince William.

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are expecting their third child.

George, 4, the eldest child of the royal couple, held his father's hand as he entered Thomas's Battersea, an independent private school that cost $23,000 annually to attend, CNN noted.

Wearing a Navy-colored uniform, Prince George didn’t seem bothered by his new surroundings and the youngster shook hands with the head of the lower school, Helen Haslem, before walking into the building.

Middleton was described as "devastated" to miss her son's first day at school, but is battling with hyperemesis gravidarum, which includes nausea and vomiting more severe than the typical morning sickness many women suffer during early pregnancy, The Sun noted.

"She would have done anything to be here," one source told CNN. "It's a big day in her son's life but she really has been very sick."

Prince William and Prince George posed for a photo before school that was shared by Kensington Palace.

"It went well," Prince William said later about his son's first day in school, according to The Sun. "There was one other parent who had more of an issue with their children so I was quite pleased I wasn't the one."

The website The Good Schools Guide called Thomas's Bettersea a "… big, busy, slightly chaotic school for cosmopolitan parents who want their children to have the best English education money can buy. That is what they want and, to a large degree, that is what they get. Plenty of opportunities for pupils to excel but withdrawn types might find it all somewhat overwhelming."
