Prince George pictures mark royal baby’s first birthday

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge have thanked well-wishers as Prince George celebrates his first birthday.

Two new pictures of the third in line to the throne have been released to mark the occasion on Tuesday.

One shows Prince George transfixed by a butterfly, while a second shows him with his mother and father, staring at an object above their heads.

In a statement the duke and duchess thanked people for their “warm and generous good wishes”.

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.”

The duke and duchess are expected to hold a birthday party for the young prince on Tuesday at their Kensington Palace apartment.

Warm wishes

Prince George was first revealed to the public on the steps of St Mary’s hospital in London on 23 July 2013.


The couple and their son were also warmly welcomed when they travelled to New Zealand and Australia on a royal visit.

An image of Prince George was released on Sunday and the new pictures published on Monday night complete the set.

One shows the young royal fascinated by a blue morpho butterfly, which has landed on his father’s hand.

The other image shows the two future kings and the Duchess of Cambridge looking at an object above their heads.

The pictures were taken a few weeks ago at London’s Natural History Museum by the Press Association’s John Stillwell.
