We all love Prince William and Kate Middleton’s children and their firstborn never fails to put smiles on our faces. Every royal occasion usually means more adorable snaps of the 5-year-old and we’re always impatiently waiting for a new dose of cuteness.


Kensington Palace didn’t disappoint and released a beautiful portrait of Prince George to mark his birthday.

The brightest smile

On Sunday, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge shared a new portrait of their firstborn wearing perhaps the biggest smile we’ve seen on his face yet.

Happy Prince George was captured smiling from ear to ear and we can’t help but smile every time we look at the adorable royal. The portrait was posted along with the caption:

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are very pleased to share a new photograph of Prince George to mark his fifth birthday – thank you everyone for your lovely messages.

Note that Prince George is wearing the same outfit he was seen in during his little brother’s christening two weeks ago, which leads us to believe that’s when the portrait was taken.

Special gift

Although we’re sure that George received many toys and other fun presents, there was one special gift only someone with a royal title is worthy of getting. The Royal Mint made a stunning coin for the 5-year-old’s birthday. It features the legend of Saint George and the Dragon and is fittingly titled The Progress of Prince.

Royal fans will be able to purchase the coin for their collection on The Royal Mint’s website.
