Prince William's pregnant wife Kate was too ill with morning sickness on Thursday to take young Prince George to his first day of school.

The 4-year-old prince arrived at school holding the hand of his father.

Kate had planned to accompany them but canceled. "Unfortunately the Duchess of Cambridge remains unwell," a Kensington Palace statement said.

George arrived on time for his first day at Thomas's Battersea school in south London. He was met by Helen Haslem, a senior teacher who introduced him to the other students.

The palace said earlier this week that Kate is pregnant with her third child and is suffering from acute morning sickness, as in her earlier pregnancies.

She has canceled several public appearances since the announcement.
