To commemorate Prince George’s sixth birthday tomorrow, Kensington Palace has released three new photos of the prince.
How many remember this scene six years ago?!?
All of the new photos were taken by the Duchess of Cambridge.
Two were shot in the garden at Kensington Palace, and the third was taken on holiday. The family is said to be vacationing on Mustique, and Emily Andrews reports that is where the picture of George in the green polo shirt was taken.
In one of the images – all taken by his mother the Duchess of Cambridge – George is laughing, his eyes screwed up in joy. A gap in his bottom row of teeth, where he has lost a milk tooth, emphasises the sense that at heart this is just a normal little lad having a jolly fun time in front of the camera.
UPDATE JULY 22: Here is an additional photo from the polo July 10, shared in honor of George’s birthday today on Twitter. Posted by the Army in London, in the lower left corner, you see Domhnall, the mascot of The Irish Guards.
George has been busy since last July. He was a page boy at two weddings. Below you see him at the August wedding of Sophie Carter; the bride is one of Kate’s close friends.
And here you see both Charlotte and George at Princess Eugenie’s October 2018 wedding.
The next time we saw an official picture of George was when images marking Prince Charles’s 70th birthday were released. We saw another family photo in December, this one used for the Cambridge’s Christmas card.
We had just a glimpse of the Prince as the family arrived for the Queen’s annual Christmas luncheon at Buckingham Palace. This spring we were all delighted by wonderful photos of all three Cambridge children as they explored the Back to Nature Garden at the Chelsea Flower Show, a project the Duchess worked on for months.
A little more than a month ago we saw the trio again at Trooping the Colour.

And just ten days ago we saw Prince George at a charity polo match, along with Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis.
And goodness, how he has grown.
It is a delight to see Prince George growing up!
