Prince George is turning 7-years-old!
George will celebrate his birthday on Wednesday and prior to his big day, his parents, Prince William and Kate Middleton have released two new portraits taken by the Duchess of Cambridge.
“The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are delighted to share two new photographs of Prince George ahead of his seventh birthday tomorrow,” a statement from Kensington Palace read.
In the two shots, George shows off his tan and mop of blonde hair at the family’s country home in Norfolk where they have been quarantining.
Mom Kate, 38, recently joked about George and his younger siblings’ appetites.
“My children have bottomless pits,” Kate told BBC Breakfast about George, Princess Charlotte, 5, and Prince Louis, 2. “I feel like a constant feeding machine.”
The prince was recently seen in pictures climbing all over father William to mark Father’s Day.
And as he reaches one of his latest milestones, George’s godparent gave a little light into his personality.
A close friend of George’s late grandmother Princess Diana, Julia Samuel says he is “amazing.” “He’s funny and feisty and cheeky and God she [Diana] would have loved him so much,” she said in an interview with the podcast, How To Fail With Elizabeth Day. “That is heartbreaking for all of them.”
Samuel said she likes to gift Diana’s sense of humor to the young prince by giving him noisy toys.
“I do to George what [Diana] did to us, which is give impossible toys that are really noisy and take a lot of making,” Samuel said regarding the little royal’s birthdays. “I come in slightly tipped by the size of the present that William then has to spend days putting together. And then put all the machinery together, and it makes awful tooting noises and lights flashing and all of that.”
“That makes me laugh, and it makes George laugh,” she added.
