Royal schoolboys times two!

As Prince George confidently strode into his first day of nursery school at the Westacre Montessori School in Norfolk, memories of dad Prince William‘s very first day of school in 1985 sprang to mind.

Looking back at William’s first day at the private Mrs. Mynors’ Nursery School in London, both princes share golden hair, full, rosy cheeks and the perfect first-day outfit, but there’s no denying that George, 2, appears to be more excited for his big adventure, judging by the tiny frown on young Willam’s face!

But both princes had successful first days. William was said to have settled in and quite “liked it,” according to his teacher Mrs. Mynor. And a palace source tells PEOPLE that George’s day “went well.”

And not to be outdone, Prince Harry made a memorable entrance on his first day of school, smiling and waving to photographers as he excitedly ran down the steps to his classroom. Hours later, he left the school holding a handmade pair of binoculars, which he pointed directly at the crowd of reporters!
