Britain's young Prince George started his first day of nursery school on Wednesday. 

On his big day, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge shared two adorable photos of their son to mark the occasion. The pictures were released on Facebook and Twitter. 

Prince George now attends the Westacre Montessori School Nursery in Norfolk, which is 110 miles north of London. The prince is nearly 2½ years old and has been raised largely out of the public eye although he has on occasion traveled with his parents, Prince William and his wife Kate Middleton.

The nursery said last month it looked forward to welcoming the young prince.

"He will get the same special experience as all of our children," the nursery said. 

The two new pictures show Prince George standing in front of a mural on the outside of the nursery. Too cute!
