Happy Birthday Prince George! 21 Of His Best Pictures As He Turns 8

We’re marking the occasion by taking a look back through some of his funniest (and cutest) moments.

Prince George turns eight on Thursday – and we sincerely hope he’s celebrating with presents and cake.

To mark his birthday, we’ve looked back through some of his funniest (and cutest) moments. The young prince was first photographed in the Duchess of Cambridge’s arms on the steps of the Lindo Wing of St Mary’s Hospital, Paddington back in 2013. Since then, he’s given us some brilliant looks – from seriously unimpressed to absolute joy.

Here are just a few of our favourites throughout the years.

2013

Prince George – the first of Kate and Wills’ now three children – was born on 22 July 2013.

He wasn’t a big fan of photos in the early years, that’s for sure.

2014

But George soon learned how to pose.

And pose he did.

He took his first steps in 2014.

2015

And was pleased with the arrival of his sister Princess Charlotte a year later – as seen here, peering into her pushchair. Curious George, indeed.

He was still ready for the cameras, though.

In his early years, Trooping of the Colour was a highlight of the year.

2016

In 2016, he rocked winter chic while on a family skiing holiday.

And sucked a straw...

2017

At four years old, the whole being-papped-by-the-cameras started to get tiring.

So he peered out of plane windows, instead.

He also started school at Thomas’s Battersea in London – looking nervous.

But he looked happier when posing with his dad.

2018

By 2018, Prince George showed he was tiring of flyovers and parades.

And wasn’t a big fan of waving at the crowds – unlike his sister, Charlotte.

But he still showed his cheeky side, this time at Meghan and Harry’s wedding.

2019

He loves playing with his sister Charlotte, and being a big brother to Prince Louis.

2020

Here, he is before his seventh birthday, looking all grown up.

But those events he has to attend? Yeah, still boring.

2021

Unless it’s the football, in which case, he’son the edge of his seat with the rest of us.
