Prince George Turns 8! See New Birthday Portraits Of The Young Royal!


Prince George celebrates his eighth birthday!

Kensington Palace began the young royal's birthday celebrations on Wednesday by continuing its custom of releasing birthday portraits one day early; the third in line to the throne will officially celebrate on Thursday.

The Duchess of Cambridge has released new photos of Prince George, who is wearing a navy and orange collared shirt and matching navy shorts and is beaming at the camera.

According to a Kensington Palace statement shared with Stardia, the photo was taken in Norfolk earlier this month.

George, the eldest child of Prince William and Kate Middleton, was born on July 22, 2013, at 4:24 p.m. at St Mary's Hospital in London.

Given that George wore an England jersey in his beaming birthday portraits last year, many assumed that the portraits would feature him in one as well:

It was also assumed that the young royal would wear something England-related, as George did not wear a soccer jersey while accompanying his parents to two Euro 2020 matches in recent weeks.

Instead, the prince dressed up for the games in a suit and tie and cheered on the Three Lions with all his might during the finals:

The England games were just another glimpse of the Cambridge children, whose presence at royal engagements and appearances on social media have increased in the last two years, particularly during the pandemic, and is part of a new shift in Kate and William's social media presence, which includes them becoming YouTubers.

Because of the increased appearances, royal supporters heard the Cambridge children speak for the first time in a video posted on the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge's Instagram last October.

In the video, George, Princess Charlotte, and Prince Louis all pose questions to naturalist and broadcaster Sir David Attenborough:

Something tells us that there will be even more for the Cambridge children in the future, including possibly some YouTube appearances, especially as the Queen celebrates her Platinum Jubilee.
