Looks who’s three! Prince George is celebrating his big day today, July 22. He is having a private birthday party (I am slightly offended I wasn’t invited), but William and Kate shared some sweet new photos of their little guy. And of course in all the photos he’s wearing his signature shorts—this outfit is from Pepa & Co and the shoes are Trotters.
The photos were taken at their Norfolk home, Anmer Hall, in mid-July and show George enjoying the great outdoors. Look how daring he is. And also check out the names on the swing. Wonder if it was a wedding gift for William and Kate?
Kensington Palace released the four photos that were taken by photographer Matt Porteous. The Palace says “The Duke and Duchess hope that people will enjoy seeing these new photographs. They would like to thank everyone for all the lovely messages they have received as Prince George celebrates his third birthday.”
This one may be my favourite—George and the family dog Lupo. Hey, Lupo, want some ice cream? This reminds me of this photo.
Kensington Palace captured the photo, “Can’t believe it’s been three years already!” I couldn’t agree more.
Can we just talk about how big George has gotten? And how blonde! Remember him as a baby?
He was so wee and bald. But those cheeks were already chubby and adorable.
It’s been a pretty busy year for George. He started nursery school, he went on a ski holiday with the fam…oh, and he met Barack Obama while wearing a monogrammed robe. You know, average life events for a toddler.
George is quite an adventurous little guy—he loves trucks, helicopters and motorbikes. He’s already playing tennis—he must have inherited his skills on the court from mom. And he’s a big fan of dinosaurs.
But he’s also the future king and he’s already preparing for the role.
On Saturday, Prince George attended his second royal engagement in as many weeks, this time celebrating the 75th anniversary of the Special Air Services. At the event near Hereford, George along with Will and Kate unveiled a statue and met retired members of the regiment. So far there have been no photos released of the event.
His two recent engagements in the UK are just the first of many. In June, both George and Princess Charlotte were added to the Royal Diary and Court Circular, which list any engagement the royals attend. Clearly, both George and Charlotte will be attending more royal events in the future—which means more photos of the cuties. But, it’s also a sign that they’re not normal kids, they are little royals with responsibilities. Kind of crazy, right?
But I for one am very excited to see more of George. And his amazing facial expressions. Happy birthday George! I hope you have a magical day.
The cheery birthday boy
Prince George might be the happiest birthday boy around. On his fifth birthday, William and Kate released this cheery photo of their son taken in the Clarence House gardens during Prince Louis’s christening two weeks earlier. It’s rumoured the family spent George’s actual big day on holiday in Mustique with the Middletons. Hopefully George enjoyed a big ice cream sundae on the beach!
