As Prince William attends his first day of a 10-week course for agricultural management at the University of Cambridge, he begins his journey by train at Kings Cross Station. This is an unlikely mode of transportation for the Duke of Cambridge.
After ending his service as a Royal Air Force rescue pilot in September, William decided that he wanted to study about agricultural management. This course will consist of lectures, seminars, and meetings, said in a statement by Kensington Palace, according to ABC News.
The palace hopes that the Duke will gain a better understanding of issues affecting agriculture business in the UK, as well as prepare him for when he inherits the Duchy of Cornwall estate.
When the Duke toured school, he was warmly welcomed by vice chancellor Sir Leszek Borysiewicz, along with Master of St John's, Professor Christopher Dobson, and Polly Courtice, director of the Programme for Sustainability Leadership, according to The Telegraph.
The Duchess and their son, Prince George stayed safely behind in Kensington Palace, while the Duke toured the grounds.
