He is due to start attending before the end of January, Kensington Palace said in a statement.

As the announcement was made, a new photograph of William, Kate, George and his sister Princess Charlotte, born in May, was released.

The picture shows the whole family smiling as Kate cradles Charlotte, George stands next to her and William looks on.

In its statement, Kensington Palace quoted the nursery as saying: "We are looking forward to welcoming George to our nursery, where he will get the same special experience as all of our children."

While the older generation of British royals did not typically attend nursery, George will be following in the footsteps of his father.

William was sent to an exclusive nursery school near Kensington Palace in London by his mother, the late princess Diana, who had herself worked at a nursery before her marriage to Prince Charles.

Montessori schools are known for their liberal approach to education, which can include mixed age classrooms and encouraging children to act independently.
