He's only approaching his third birthday, but Prince George is already used to stealing the spotlight from his famous parents.

The adorable prince joined Kate Middleton and Prince William at the Royal International Air Tattoo at RAF Fairford and confidently strolled on the tarmac holding his father's hand.

And proving toddlers are all the same regardless of whether or not they have titles, the future King of England threw a tantrum at the event, prompting the Duchess of Cambridge to carry him.

The trio arrived via helicopter and George kept his earmuffs on for much of the day due to the noise of the engines.

While the Duke and Duchess have been busy with engagements in recent weeks, it marks George's first appearance since celebrating Queen Elizabeth's 90th birthday, where even his one-year-old sister Princess Charlotte joined him.

Meanwhile, at Wimbledon on Thursday, Kate revealed her son's early penchant for tennis.

"He has a racket and he enjoys playing," she told former tennis star Greg Rudeski. "He palsy with William. They obviously enjoy the sport very much. As long as he is enjoying it at his age, that's all that matters."

It looks like she and her husband of five years will have their hands full as they're reportedly keen to have a little sibling for George and Princess Charlotte.

In a profile by Vanity Fair, sources told the publication, “They want at least three kids and for them to be close in age.”

The couple are based in their country estate Amner Hall and travel to their apartment at Kensington Palace for overnight stays and royal business in London, but intend on living there until they are called up to duty.

"It’s no secret that William doesn’t like the media intrusion into his life, and in the country he can escape,” a family friend told the mag.

“The Queen and the Prince of Wales have given their blessing for William to live this life, and William is very grateful. It’s enabling him and Kate to raise their family in a way that’s as close to ordinary as they can get.”
