The Palace released two photos, which were taken by George's mother, Kate Middleton. "The [photos] show Prince George standing in front of the mural on the outside of the nursery building," the Palace shared.

Westacre cost $8.20 per hour -- or $49 per day to attend -- and is housed in a converted chapel.  Montessori refers to an educational style that emphasizes independent learning, and respect for the child's psychological development.

Prince George's father, 33-year-old Prince William, recently admitted that fatherhood has made him "more emotional" in a new ITV documentary, When Ant and Dec Met the Prince: 40 Years of the Prince's Trust.

"I never used to really kind of sort of get too wound up or worried about things," Prince William, who's also a father to 8-month-old Princess Charlotte, explained. "But now, the smallest little things, I can feel. You well up a little bit more, and you get affected by the sort of things that happen around the world or whatever a lot more, I think -- as a father -- just because you realize how precious life is and it puts it all in perspective, the idea of not being around to see your children grow up."
