The teacher who greeted Prince George on his first day of school wore Kate Middleton's fave fashion brand

Prince George started his first day of school in London on Thursday morning, accompanied by his father, Prince William. Unfortunately, the Duchess of Cambridge, was not able to attend because she’s still suffering badly from hyperemesis gravidarum, otherwise known as severe morning sickness.

The 4-year-old, however, was greeted by a friendly face: Helen Haslem, who is the head of the Lower School at Thomas’s Battersea.

Haslem shook hands with the new student and then took his hand — William held the other — and escorted George into his classroom.

And while George most likely would have appreciated having his mother in Haslem’s place, the principal seemingly brought a piece of Kate Middleton to the occasion.


Haslem channeled Middleton by choosing a look from one of her most-worn brands, LK Bennett. The piece, a rose-color, long-sleeve dress with flare sleeves and a conservative V-neck, retails for $425.

As for Prince George, he wore his uniform, navy blue trouser shorts paired with high socks and penny loafers.


Prince George resembled his dad, Prince William, on his first day of school. Both George’s father and uncle Prince Harry attended Wetherby Preparatory School in Marylebone London and were accompanied by their parents, Prince Charles and Princess Diana, on their first days.

It has been an exciting week for the little royal after Kensington Palace announced another sibling for George and his little sister, Princess Charlotte, is on the way.
