Happy birthday Prince George!
We are back with some quick updates and then a look at clothing items worn by Princess Charlotte and Prince George that have been identified.
- Update #1 involves Prince George’s fifth birthday on Sunday. I’ve been getting some questions about the likelihood of a new photo being released to mark the occasion. I would say chances are 50-50. It’s possible the position will be that the christening pictures were just released and we have also seen plenty of the children recently. The other side of the coin is that Matt Porteous, who took George’s third birthday photos, was at the christening and may have done a new photo. We’ll have to wait and see.
- Update #2 is simply that it looks like the Cambridges are taking their first vacation as a family of five. If rumors are true (and there is no confirmation from Kensington Palace, they do not confirm or deny questions about private occasions and events like vacations), the family is on Mustique. This is where the Middletons and the Cambridges generally go in January; this year they did not get away.
- Update #3 offers a look at a previously unseen photo of Prince Charles, Prince William, and Prince George.

Now for the updated IDs. We begin with a look at the dress Charlotte wore while watching the flypast at Buckingham Palace marking the RAF’s 100th anniversary. (This was back on July 10th; our What Kate Wore post on the event is here.)
Official images from Prince Louis’s christening were released tonight, providing our first look at the Cambridges as a family of five.
George, Charlotte, and Louis all look darling; Prince George with his hand in his pocket, Charlotte with a spunky smile, and Louis gazing up (I think) at Kate, while his parents appear utterly delighted.
Here is how the family looked as a family of four in the official portrait from Charlotte’s christening in July 2015. Both children seem to be growing up so quickly!
