Prince William And Kate Middleton Celebrate Prince George's Birthday With Adorable Pictures
Kensington Palace has marked Prince George's sixth birthday by sharing a series of adorable photos of the young royal - and we can't believe how grown-up he looks!
The gorgeous snaps were captured by Kate Middleton, who has taken most of the photos of the royal children that are released to the public, as the youngster played in the garden of their home at Kensington Palace.
In two of the charming photos, the young prince proudly wore his white England football jersey as he cheekily beamed down the camera's lens, while in the third shot Kate captured his strong resemblance to his father, Prince William.
The photos were shared on the official Kensington Palace Instagram, who thanked everybody for their "lovely messages".
The caption read: "Happy Birthday Prince George! The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are very pleased to share new photographs of Prince George to mark His Royal Highness's sixth birthday.
"This photograph was taken recently in the garden of their home at Kensington Palace by The Duchess of Cambridge. Thank you everyone for all your lovely messages!"
George, whose full name is Prince George Alexander Louis, was born at 4.24pm on 22nd July 2013, weighing 8lb 6oz and is the third in line to the throne.
The young prince made his first public appearance shortly afterwards when the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge proudly showed him off on the steps of the Lindo Wing of St Mary's Hospital in Paddington, London, just a few hours after he was born.
Last year, Prince George's fifth birthday was commemorated by The Royal Mint, who unveiled a £5 coin issued in his honour.
"The birth of Prince George altered the course of history in the United Kingdom, and we are pleased to be marking the fifth birthday of our future king," said the director of consumer business for The Royal Mint, Nicola Howell.
The coin features the tale of St. George and the Dragon on one side and his great grandmother, Queen Elizabeth II on the other. The uncirculated coin costs £13 on The Royal Mint's official website.
Happy Birthday to the not-so-little Prince!
