Adorable new photo of Prince George released to mark first birthday

A new photograph of Prince George of Cambridge has been released to mark the 3rd-in-line to the throne’s first birthday, which he celebrates this Tuesday.

Prince George's first birthday

The picture was taken by Press Association photographer John Stillwell when Prince George visited the “Sensational Butterflies” exhibition at the Natural History Museum earlier this month with his parents the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge. It shows the young prince walking whilst touring the exhibition in London.

Released ahead of the Prince’s first birthday by Kensington Palace, this latest photo is one of several occasions for photos the world have already enjoyed, with the first photos being released by the Palace just months after he was born taken by Michael Middleton in the Middleton family back garden.

Prince George, who will one day reign as king, has already travelled to two of the countries he will one day potentially reign over on his the tour of New Zealand and Australia last year with parents William and Kate.

Kensington Palace announced the new photos on Friday with this single photo being released today for the Sunday papers. Two more images of the Prince at the museum will be released on Monday evening, ahead of the Tuesday editions of the national papers.
