The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge have chosen to send their two-year-old son to a modestly-priced nursery school in Norfolk where most parents get financial help to pay the fees.

George will attend the nursery, based in King’s Lynn, part-time.

The news is the latest evidence that William and Catherine regard Norfolk as their main home, rather than their London residence at Kensington Palace.

The Duke currently works for the East Anglian Air Ambulance Service and the family already spend most of their time at Anmer.

They have also stayed true to their belief that their children should have as normal an upbringing as possible.

The school costs just £5.50 per hour, or £33 per day, and 23 of its 27 children are in receipt of funding. It also has some children with special needs, meaning George will be alongside normal children who will no doubt treat him as one of them and not the future King.

In contrast, nurseries near Kensington Palace can cost upwards of £15,000 per year.
