Royal thanks from William and Kate on George's first birthday
Prince William and his wife Kate have used their son's first birthday today to issue a heartfelt thanks to everyone who has wished their family well during the past year.
In a short message, the couple said: "We would like to take this opportunity on George's first birthday to thank everyone over the last year, wherever we have met them, both at home and overseas, for their warm and generous good wishes to George and our family."
They will celebrate their son's first birthday with family and friends at Kensing-ton Palace and are expected to hold a birthday party.
Prince Harry has described George as "big chubby cheeks" and said he has the appearance of a "young Winston Churchill".
