Prince George turns 6 today!
On Monday (July 22), Kensington Palace took to Instagram to celebrate the little prince’s sixth birthday with a series of images taken for his special day.
"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," reads the caption for the posts. "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!"
In the first of three new photos, Prince William and Kate Middleton’s adorable baby boy can be seen in a white England football shirt with a beaming smile while he plays in the garden of his London home. Another shot shows the youngster in the same top, only this time smiling playfully at the camera while in laying in the grass. The last of the gallery shows George in a different outdoors outfit consisting of a green polo shirt and blue-and-white striped shorts as he poses in front of floral scenery.
The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge’s oldest son was born on July 22, 2013. George is also third in line to the British throne, after his father and grandfather, Prince Charles, which would make him the 43rd monarch since William de Conqueror.
As previously reported, the Cambridge family, including George’s younger siblings Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis, will be celebrating the six-year-old’s birthday on the Caribbean island of Mustique.
Happy birthday, Prince George!
