Prince George is to begin attending a local nursery in Norfolk in January.
The two-year-old will be enrolled for a few days a week at the Westacre Montessori School nursery near the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge's Norfolk home, Anmer Hall.
A picture of the Cambridges with their children George and Princess Charlotte has also been released.
It shows the family in the garden at Kensington Palace and was taken in late October by photographer Chris Jelf.
George was spotted with his mother at the royal family's annual Buckingham Palace lunch earlier this week.
The nursery said in a statement: "We are looking forward to welcoming George to our nursery where he will get the same special experience as all our children."
George is expected to attend his first class before the end of January.
