Happy Birthday, Prince George!
In advance of George’s seventh birthday tomorrow, Kensington Palace released two new photos of the Prince.
The images were taken earlier this month by his mother, the Duchess of Cambridge. Below, a refresher with a couple of the images Kate shot last July for George’s sixth birthday.
Let’s take a look back at what the Prince has been up to since his last birthday. In August he joined the rest of the family for the King’s Cup Regatta. Below, with his grandmother, Carole Middleton.
Two more photos from that event.
September brought the first day of the school year.
Kate and William accompanied the children to school as it was Princess Charlotte’s first day at her new school.
In October Prince George and Princess Charlotte joined their parents at a football match.
The Prince really seemed to have a terrific time at the match.
You may remember the fun video of George celebrating during the match.

We saw George in the black and white photo used for the Cambridge family Christmas card, another picture taken by the Duchess. (Note the camo shorts.)
December also brought photos of the family attending the Queen’s annual Christmas luncheon. Prince George arrived separately with his father.
That was because the Duke and Prince were at a photo shoot for a campaign supporting an initiative from the Royal British Legion, “Together at Christmas.”
We saw the Prince join HM, and three heirs to the throne as they made Christmas puddings.
Last year we also saw George and Charlotte make their debut for the traditional Christmas Day walk to church with other members of the Royal Family.
The young royals also spent time chatting with some of the people gathered to see members of the family.
In mid-March, we had a glimpse of George in a photo released as part of a special Mother’s day message Kate and William shared on social media.
We saw the Prince again in March when the family took part in Clap for our Carers, showing support for NHS and other essential workers.
The children also took part in a May Clap for our Carers event.
We did not see the traditional family photos from Trooping the Colour, as the event was canceled because of the pandemic. We did have another peek at Prince George in a photo from mid-April that was released in June for Volunteers Week.
And later in the month, the family released some lovely Father’s Day photos of the children with Prince William.
The photos were all taken by the Duchess.
Here is a look back at the Prince as he’s grown over the years.
Here is a look back at birthday pictures from years one through three.
And from four through seven.
The piece is a classic polo style in 100% cotton with button front, ribbed collar, and side vents and it comes in additional colors. With thanks to Freddy for commenting, it looks like this could well be the same polo worn in the Father’s Day outfit. Our thanks to Kate’s Royal Closet for this ID. The blue trousers we just have a glimpse of in the one photo look similar to those worn for the March Clap for Our Carers video; Freddy suggests they could also be the cargo shorts worn in the Father’s Day pictures.
I am still looking for the camo tee George wears in the other photo. I did stumble upon two repli-George options. On the left, the Kids Short-Sleeve Tee ($11.89)as shown at Gap Factory; on the right, the Old Navy Softest Crewneck Tee ($6.40 with promo code SWEET).
UPDATE JULY 22: It looks like the Prince’s tee is by Little Hero London.
The niche retailer posted on Instagram about the shirt, available for £10 via direct message. Little Hero London specializes in camouflage designs for children. I have emailed to check on the exact style name and to see if George’s is a past-season style (the collar on his shirt is different from those currently on the site). Below, a sampling of Little Hero styles. Thank you to Natasha for the comment alerting me to the Instagram post!
UPDATE July 23: The folks at Little Hero London have gotten back to me and shared this link for those interested in buying George’s shirt. The piece is made in England and while not identical to George’s, it is similar. Here is a photo from the site.
Here is a birthday video from the Royal Family Channel.
