Flick through our gallery for all the latest pics of Prince George as we celebrate his birthday.
On 21st July, the day before his fourth birthday, Prince George was treated to an early birthday surprise as he and his family departed for home from their royal tour. At Hamburg Airport, lucky George was shown around a helicopter – and his glee is clear! The young royal raised his hands to his cheeks as he explored, and it looks as though he had a brilliant start to his birthday celebrations.
Recently, all 4 members of the Cambridge family arrived in Poland for a two-day whirlwind tour of the country. They later headed to Germany to complete their royal trip.
As George arrived in Poland, he looked adorable in royal blue clutching onto his Dad's hand. But the young Prince later proved he was a still just a typical four-year-old boy, as he was left a bit bored and tired by the official greetings that took place! Looks like he needed a bit of a talking too from Dad as well...
Lucky, Prince George looked a little happier as the family pitched up in Berlin, Germany during the day.
Little Prince George admired the fly-over alongside his Mum, Dad and sister at this year's Trooping of the Colour. However, the young royal admittedly found himself a little bored at the celebrations after a while, and was pictured with a less than pleased look on his face after a little while!
George played an important role at his Auntie Pippa's wedding as a page boy, and he really couldn't look cuter in his official outfit alongside sister Charlotte.
Showing just how close the father and son pair are, Prince George gives him dad a tender hug whilst in Canada. So sweet!
On one of his very first royal tours, and their first as an entire family, George very sweetly admires some bubbles whilst at a children's garden party.
Arriving in Canada on a royal tour alongside the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, George is clearly curious to see where it is he's about to land!

Buckingham Palace have released four photos of Prince George to mark his 3rd birthday. The images which were shot by photographer Matt Porteous, were taken in mid July at Prince William and Kate's Norfolk home and show him enjoying the summer weather. The four shots depict the young royal feeing ice cream to his beloved dog Lupo, playing on a swing as well as walking around the grounds of the property.
And Lupo is not the only animal beloved by George in
addition to new pet Guinea Pig. Prince William has revealed that his
son also loves to read a certain book.
The Duke of Cambridge met children at a
new library in Oxford and let slip a secret about his two children, Prince

Three stunning new portraits were released to mark the Queen's
90th birthday, including this beautiful shot of her with two
grandchildren and three great-grandchildren.
The image, taken by
renowned photographer Annie Leibovitz at Windsor Castle last month,
shows Queen Elizabeth with two of her grandchildren and three of her
From left to right, the picture features James, Viscount
Severn, Lady Louise Alice Elizabeth Mary Mountbatten-Windsor, Mia
Tindall, The Queen, Princess Charlotte, Savannnah Phillips, Prince
George and Isla Phillips.
In celebration of the Queen's 90th birthday, Royal Mail
released a historic image, featuring Queen Elizabeth, Prince
Charles, Prince William and Prince George. Snapshots of each head will be made into stamps.

subjects need to be roughly the same height, and his signature cheeky
smile is displayed proudly to the camera.
According to royal aides, Prince George was 'good as gold' during the
photoshoot, which lasted around 25 minutes.
The Cambridge's celebrated their first family holiday in the French Alps.

In December 2015, Kensington Palace tweeted the official image on the Duke and Duchess' Christmas cards. Once again, George steals the show in the first photograph of the family as a foursome.
The world collectively sighed 'aaaah' at the very first pics of a newborn Princess Charlotte and her older brother.
Actress Sophie Winkleman, who is otherwise known as Lady Frederick Windsor - her husband is son of The Queen's first cousin Prince Michael of Kent, has revealed that Prince George is (unsuprisingly) quite advanced for his age. Sophie was invited to Kensington Palace for tea, where her daughter Maud and Prince George mingled during a play date. She reported that "Maud and George got on very well." The actress, who has appeared in television comedies such as Two and a Half Men and Peep Show also stated that "He is a very clever, articulate little boy and was speaking long before other toddlers his age."
Considering the little prince has already been thinking about his career path, this information comes as no suprise. He may only be two years old, but during celebrations for the 75th anniversary of the Royal Air Force Cadets The Duchess of Cambridge mentioned that George is hoping to become a cadet himself. Whilst on her first solo engagement as an honorary commandment for the cadets she said that ?He is now obsessed with the air cadets and wants to join.? With Prince William currently working as an air ambulance pilot, maybe Prince George has been inspired to follow in his father's footsteps? The Duchess certainly seemed keen on Prince George's new venture, stating that "We are going to have to push that one when he gets to age 12."
Prince George certainly seemed inquisitive as he was taken to Westacre Montessori School Nursery for the first time in January.
The Queen's annual Christmas lunch took place at Buckingham Palace today, and Prince George arrived with his uncle Harry.
The two year-old Prince showed off his longer hair and cute shirt and cardigan combo. Prince William said earlier this month that his son is just starting to understand and feel excited about Christmas - so we're sure this will be a lunch to remember for the whole family!
The cheeky prince turned two earlier this year and, to celebrate, the Cambridges released this lovely picture taken by Mario Testino on Princess Charlotte's christening day in the gardens of Sandringham House.

There was one notable royal missing this afternoon when Princess Charlotte was christened at Sandringham - Prince Harry.
The prince is currently in Namibia working as a wildlife ranger for the next three months. This means he wasn't able to attend his niece's christening today.
So, in a touching tribute to his uncle, Prince George was dressed in the same outfit his father, Prince William wore when he first met his new brother at the Lindo Wing, St Mary's Hospital in October 1984 - right down to the white socks and buckle shoes. Very sweet!

Like all little boys, Prince George is inherently fond of his father and misses him when he is absent on royal tours. In April it was reported that on hearing his father was visiting China last month, George took himself off to the china cabinet, opened it and searched for a short time before proclaiming 'daddy is not here'.
The delightful story was shared by the Duchess of Cambridge during a party to celebrate the 105th birthday of London's Goring Hotel - the luxury venue she stayed in the night before her wedding to William in 2011.
Over the course of the evening the Duchess joked that the couple would work on his geography.
This isn't the first playful anecdote to reveal George's boundless energy and curious nature. In the months leading up to his first birthday last year, the Duke admitted the young Prince had taken to 'charging around' the palace 'opening and closing doors'.
The young family are undoubtedly gearing up for the imminent arrival of the newest member, due late April. The Duke of Cambridge who is employed as a pilot for East Anglian Air Ambulance across Cambridge, Norwich and Gloucestershire Airport, faces a 2 hour dash down the motorway should the Duchess go into labour with the new prince or princess during one of his shifts.
Little George is said to be particularly thrilled at the prospect of having a sibling to play with. Something tells us Catherine is going to need all the rest she can get.
In December, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge released three official photographs of adorable Prince George just in time for Christmas. Sat on the courtyard steps at Kensington Palace, the young Prince looks relaxed and happy in what is his first solo photoshoot.
Much like the Cambridge family's first portrait - which was taken by Catherine's father Michael Middleton in the garden of his Berkshire home, these official pictures were captured at the young family's London home by Prince Harry's private secretary, Edward Lane Fox.
The informal shots capture George's mischievous character perfectly, which is probably why the Duke and Duchess prefer candid images taken by family members and trusted advisors over professional photographers.
Previously referred to as 'quite the handful' by palace staff and a 'little bit of a rascal' by his father William, Prince George's bare legs (in November) and cheeky grin present him as a hardy little toddler with boundless energy.
George's pinked and slightly puffy cheeks indicate that the third in line to throne is probably teething. This coupled with Catherine's severe morning sickness could mean there have been some rather long nights at the palace of late.
Much like his mother, any item of clothing Prince George is seen in sells out immediately. This navy knitted solider vest by Cath Kidston is currently discontinued but may be put back into production to meet public demand.

An adorable photo released by Clarence House on July 19th, just three days before his first birthday, saw baby George walking unaided as he wandered around the Sensational Butterflies exhibition during a family trip to the Natural History Museum, London. Our future King shows he is more than just a pretty face looking strong and confident in this photo.
Our petite Prince is turning into a perfectly tailored toddler right in front of our eyes, and we can't wait to watch him grow up into a young man.

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and Prince George visited the Nighlife display at Taronga Zoo in Sydney for George's second public apperance of the Royal Tour. Here Prince George met a bilby who'd recently had a name change from Boy to George in honour of our baby Prince. George the bilby was also in the newly named Prince George Bilby Exhibit which was offically opened by William and Kate. Prince George squealed with delight at meeting George the Bilby and wanted nothing more than to squeeze his ears and pull his tail. Kate had decided beforehand that is was best to not let baby George touch for the bilby for the sake of the endangered animal.

Prince George attended his first public playdate at an event for Plunket nurses and parents with young children at Government House in Wellington. Plunket is a national not-for-profit organisation that provides care for children and families in New Zealand. In his first public appearance of the Royal Tour Prince George was in the company of ten other babies and their parents, this was the most babies George had ever been surrounded by at once. The informal playdate saw the royal couple discussing all things baby and jetlag. Prince George dominated the crowd and was described as "bubbly", "feisty" and "quite a bruiser".

Prince George's christening took place at the Chapel Royal, St James' Palace, London. The royal baby, third in line to the throne, was baptised by the Archbishop of Cantebury. The christening was an intimate affair with only 22 guests, including George's seven godparents and their spouses. Prince George's gorgeous gown was a replica of that worn by Queen Victoria's eldest daughter.
Prince George's first official photos were taken by Catherine's father, Michael Middleton, in the garden of the Middleton family home in Bucklebury, Berkshire.

Just over a year ago (we know - where did it go?!) the whole nation was waiting on the arrival of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge's first child - our very own Prince George Alexander Louis. Today news has broken that that the Royal couple are expecting their second child, which is expected to be born mid next year.
As with her first pregnancy, the Duchess is reportedly suffering from severe morning sickness which has caused her to pull out of a royal engagement today and resulted in the big news being announced slightly premature of the usual three month protocol.
We are thrilled for the couple and can't wait for the arrival of the new Prince or Princess. Prince George's life has been a whirlwind of excitement and adventure - from his Royal Tour to his first steps in public - and we've been on board to document those memorable moments. Join us in preparing to go through it all again by taking a look through Prince George's first year in pictures...
