Can somebody please let me know how Prince George is almost seven years old? On Tuesday evening, Kensington Palace released two new portraits of the not-so-little prince in honor of his seventh birthday tomorrow, July 22. The photos were taken by the Duchess of Cambridge earlier this month.

I mean, can you even handle the camo t-shirt? The teeth! The hair! The smile!

As many royal fans know, it's tradition for Kensington Palace to release new photos of the little royals ahead of their birthdays. Now more than ever, it's a bright spot for the public to receive them. By the look of the photos, you wouldn't be able to tell that Prince George is reportedly grumpy (opens in new tab) about his younger brother, Prince Louis, growing more sunflowers than him in the garden.

There probably won't be a big birthday celebration with friends and family amidst the COVID-19 pandemic, but surely Will and Kate have something planned for the immediate family to celebrate George's big day. A drive-by with the Queen? A walk around the palace? The possibilities are endless!

Happy seventh birthday, Prince George! Stop growing up so fast.
