Happy Birthday Prince George!23-07-2016
The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge have released a set of adorable photographs of Prince George to celebrate his third birthday.
Third in line to the throne and a future king, George is likely to mark the milestone with a party with proud parents the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge hosting the event.
The prince is known for his boundless energy and inquisitive mind, with Kate describing her eldest child as "a really lovely little boy".
George marked his second birthday at home, Anmer Hall, close to the Queen's private Norfolk property Sandringham House.
Four striking images have been issued by the royal couple showing the young prince in the grounds of their Norfolk home Anmer Hall.
A Kensington Palace spokesman said: "The Duke and Duchess hope that people will enjoy seeing these new photographs.
"They would like to thank everyone for all the lovely messages they have received as Prince George celebrates his third birthday."
The first of the pictures, taken in mid-July by photographer Matt Porteous, show George standing barefoot on a swing engraved with his parent's names, Wiliam and Catherine.
It is believed to have been a wedding gift to his parents.
In another, he shares a touching moment with the family dog as he cheekily shares an ice cream with spaniel Lupo as the pair sit together on a tartan blanket.
The fourth shows the cheeky prince walking through the grounds of Anmer wearing a Trotters jumper and shoes.
Mr Porteous said: "I really enjoyed the opportunity to take these photographs of Prince George. It was a very relaxed and enjoyable atmosphere. I'm honoured that they have decided to share these images with the public to mark his third birthday."
To celebrate his birthday, the cute prince was joined by friends and family, including his parents, younger sister Princess Charlotte, grandmother Carole Middleton, nanny Maria Teresa Turrion Borrallo, and great-grandfather the Duke of Edinburgh.
The prince, who started nursery at the beginning of the year, might even invite some of his new friends from the Westacre Montessori nursery school to this year's birthday celebrations.
