Prince George at three - the new photos
Here he is. Prince George of Cambridge turns three on July 22nd 2016 and of course there are official photos. On this big birthday, the third in line to the throne is looking as cheeky as ever. Welcome to George's birthday album 2016.
Now we are three, we are very grown up so the official photos show George getting up to all kinds of three year old things albeit with a royal touch. Every parent knows that kids love swings, especially when they can do things on them that they're not meant to like standing on them. And when you are third in line to the throne where else would you stand than on a swing with your mum and dad's names on it.
The pictures were taken by Matt Porteous at the Cambridges' Norfolk home at Anmer Hall and they were shared on Twitter by Kensington Palace on the morning George turned three.
They were accompanied by a thank you message from the Cambridge family for all the messages and wishes they had received for George's birthday. These photos will form part of a royal history yet to be written but for now they are happy snaps of a happy boy marking a happy day with his family. Happy Birthday, George.
