Can you believe it's been two years since this little cutie was born? It's been two amazing years of Prince George—who I affectionately call the King of Cheeks!

In celebration of George's big day tomorrow (July 22), Prince William and Kate have released a photo of the little prince, taken at Princess Charlotte's christening by Mario Testino.

He's wearing a Rachel Riley outfit—the designer is quickly becoming one of George's favourite designers. OK, one of Kate's favourite designers.

For his birthday, George will have a private party at his Norfolk home, Anmer Hall. It's expected that the Queen will stop by for tea, but Grandpa Charles won't make it as he's on a royal tour. And neither will Uncle Harry as he's still in Africa working on conservation projects. It will obviously be a low-key affair without Harry there.


Now George has had a pretty great second year. Here are just a few of the highlights.


Starting with the big moment of the year—George became a big brother. You can't really top adding a princess to the family.

George accidentally stole the show at Princess Charlotte's christening! But really, who can resist those cheeks and that grin.

George also showed toddlers everywhere what it means to be a fashion icon. He wore this romper to celebrate the Queen's birthday, but this isn't your average outfit. Dad wore it back in the 80s and Grandpa Charles wore it too, a long time ago. And it's still just as cute in 2015. See classic pieces never go out of style.

He also unfortunately, brought crocs back in style. I forgive you George!

Now George may only be two and many years away from becoming king, but he spent 2015 working on his royal wave. Mastering the wave is a major part of royal 101.

And of course, sitting for a formal portrait. Another royal-must. George has a good mix of serious faces with a little bit of personality. What a king.

Happy birthday Prince George. May the twos not be terrible for mum and dad and be full of adorable pictures for the rest of us.
