We have a delightful new photo of Prince George to share on the eve of his eighth birthday.
The photo was taken earlier this month by the Duchess of Cambridge at the family’s country home, Anmer Hall. In a lovely nod to his great-grandfather, Prince Philip, George is seated on a Land Rover Defender, a vehicle Prince Philip was very fond of; his coffin was carried on a modified Defender at his funeral in April.
You can see how much the young Prince has grown since last year’s official photo.
The family will celebrate the future king’s birthday privately.
Prince George will also be preparing for a new chapter in his life, amid claims that he will start a new prep school in September.
Both Prince William and Prince Harry boarded at Ludgrove School in Berkshire from the age of eight before moving to Eton at 13.
Because of the pandemic, we do not have loads of photos from the past year showing Prince George at events like Trooping the Colour. We did see George at two football games with his parents. Most recently, at the Euro 2020 Championship Final on July 11.
And before that, at a match on June 29.

In June, the Prince joined his sister and father at the start of a footrace at Sandringham.
It was several months back when the entire Cambridge family was featured in their annual Christmas card photo.
Earlier in December, we saw George and his siblings at a special pantomime performance at London’s Palladium Theatre.
The event was put on for key workers and their families.
George also joined his brother and sister in quizzing Sir David Attenborough about the natural world in October of last year.
You can hear the children in this quick video.

Those queries followed a Kensington Palace movie screening of Sir David’s film, David Attenborough: A Life On Our Planet.
Here is a look back at the young Prince in all of his official birthday photos.
The shirt is 100% cotton with a classic point collar, short sleeves, and a three-button front placket. It is made with fibers from the “Better Cotton Initiative,” a non-profit that is the largest cotton sustainability program in the world. The shirt comes in other colors like khaki, a blue and yellow stripe, and red.
Here is a recap of birthday photos from the past eight years.
The most recent four years.
Happy Birthday, Prince George!
I wanted to take this opportunity to update what information there is on Prince George’s outfits for the soccer matches. I have searched and searched for the navy blazer he wore, but it remains unidentified, as does his tie. It looks like his trousers could be a pair by Ralph Lauren, with thanks to Bojana for the tip. They appear quite similar to the Polo Ralph Lauren Stretch Chinos.
