In celebration of Prince George's first birthday, we've rounded up the sweetest baby photographs from the Royal Family.
Gorgeous George strikes again! The cheeky Prince turns two today and, to celebrate, the Cambridges have released this lovely picture taken by Mario Testino on Princess Charlotte's christening day in the gardens of Sandringham House.
The photo shows just how much of a handful the toddler prince is as he wriggles around in his father, Prince William's arms with a great big toothy grin.
Kensington Palace released the picture to its 550,000 Twitter followers yesterday - and the social network site is a flurry of activity as people tweet their birthday wishes.
It's thought the little Prince will be treated to a special party at Catherine and William's home, Amner House in Norfolk, later today.
Happy birthday George!
To mark the occasion we've gone through the archives to compile photographs of the rest of the Royal family aged two. The resemblance is uncanny..

Royal Babies Through The Ages
As the world celebrates George's birthday weeks after the christening of Princess Charlotte, it seems only fitting that we take a look back at the royal babies who came before them. We've delved in to the archives to bring you some of the sweetest baby photographs of our favourite Royals through history. In twenty years time we'll be looking back at pictures of George and Charlotte and wonder where the time went...
Queen Elizabeth II 1926
This portrait was taken of the future Queen of England with the Queen mother just days after she was born in her maternal grandfather's house in Mayfair, London. At the time, nobody suspected Elizabeth would become one of the longest serving British monarchs.
Prince Edward, Duke of Kent 1936
As head of the All England Lawn Tennis and Croquet Club, Prince Edward is perhaps best known for presenting the trophies to the Wimbledon champion and runner-up. He is the paternal cousin of Queen Elizabeth II, and so carries out Royal duties on her behalf. Here he is pictured just one year old in his pram with a toy teddy bear.
Prince Charles 1948
Prince Charles was just one month old when this photo was taken in December 1948. He was the first son of Prince Philip, the Duke of Edinburgh and Queen Elizabeth II before she became a monarch. He is the longest serving heir apparent.
Queen Elizabeth II and Prince Phillip with their young family in 1951
What a lovely picture! 1951 was a busy year for the Queen and Prince Philip. Prince Charles was three and Princess Anne a babe in arms when they took her father, King George VI's place on a royal tour of Canada. By the summer of 1952, he had sadly passed away and Elizabeth was Queen.
Prince Andrew 1960
This photo shows Queen Elizabeth II and her sister Princess Margaret on the way to Sandringham in preparation for 10-month-old Prince Andrew's first Christmas.
Prince William 1982

It's the same location that Prince George made his first public appearance in the arms of the Duchess of Cambridge alongside Prince William himself! Kate even wore a spotty dress like Diana.
Prince William 1983

Prince William 1984
Captured a year later enjoying a stroll around Regent's Park with his nanny.
