Prince George, royal rascal, is somehow already six years old. Per royal tradition, Kensington Palace released not just one, but three adorable portraits of the future king ahead of his birthday on July 22. In the first photo, George is beaming at the camera in an England soccer jersey. In the second, he looks perfectly tousled and outdoorsy in a green polo. In the third, it's back to the soccer jersey, but this time for a more candid shot of George laughing and rolling in the grass.
All three photos were taken by George's mother, the very talented Kate Middleton, and captioned:
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 seemed to have a very busy weekend celebrating his birthday with all of his schoolmates. According to US Weekly, his parents Prince William and Kate Middleton threw him a "blowout bash" at KP with a bouncy castle and a magician. Kate also apparently requested pizza, pasta, and sliders. I have one very important question: Where was my invite?
Take a look at the new portraits below:
