Kate Middleton and William release stunning photos of Prince George to mark his third birthday
Kate Middleton and William have released stunning photos of Prince George to celebrate their son's third birthday.
Kensington Palace released four new photos of the royal toddler on Friday morning.
George, who is third in line to the throne, appears relaxed and playful in the photos like most boys his age.
In one image, he's seen cheekily feeding ice-cream to the family dog Lupo as they both sit on a tartan blanket in the garden of his parents' country home.
With his strawberry blonde hair, cherub face and little button nose, the royal toddler is a picture of innocence as he's photographed roaming through the family's Amner Hall garden in Norfolk.
He's pictured wearing one of Kate's favourite brands for children, a £29.40 (€35) jumper by Pepa & Co and Trotters shoes.
William and Kate thanked well-wishers for messages of support they have received marking their eldest child's milestone on Friday.
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 photos were taken in mid-July by photographer Matt Porteous.
The prince celebrates his third birthday today and he will be joined his grandparents, Michael and Carole Middleton, as well as friends from his nearby Montessori School, Westacre to mark the special occassion.
