PRINCE George looks relaxed and happy in this newly released photo – as the future king celebrates his tenth birthday today.
Wearing a white checked shirt and green trousers, he posed for the picture last week after leaving school for the summer.
George flashed a smile just as cheeky as he did in 2015 when he posed with dad William ahead of his second birthday.
It will seem like yesterday to many when the little prince was first introduced to the world as Kate and William left St Mary’s Hospital in central London.
The birth of a new heir to the throne even prompted The Sun to change the masthead to The Son.
And this new photo clearly shows George taking fashion tips from his dad.
It shows the matching brown suede shoes, which both also wore to a trip to the Royal International Air Tattoo in Fairford, Gloucs, earlier this month.
The portrait was taken in Windsor by photographer Millie Pilkington, who also took the private wedding photos for George’s mother and father, the Prince and Princess of Wales, in April 2011.
She also took official photos of the royal family to mark Father’s Day last month and George’s sister Princess Charlotte’s eighth birthday in May.
