Duchess of Cambridge shares photo of Prince George on his 8th birthday
LONDON / CNN — Britain’s Prince George Alexander Louis is turning 8 on Thursday. To celebrate the occasion, his parents released a new photograph of their firstborn.
Keeping the tradition, the photo of George was taken by his mother, Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge, who is a keen photographer.
The Cambridges have been sharing family snaps of George each year on his birthday, a practice they have extended to their other children, 6-year-old Charlotte and 3-year-old Louis.
“The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are very pleased to share a new photograph of Prince George ahead of his eighth birthday tomorrow,” Kensington Palace said in a statement.
The photo shows a smiling George posing outside with a field of wildflowers behind him.
Kate took the photograph earlier in July in Norfolk, the family’s residence outside London, Kensington Palace officials said.
Prince George was born on July 22, 2013, at St. Mary’s Hospital in central London. His first public appearance was a day later when his parents presented him to the world on the steps of the hospital.
He is third in line to the British throne behind his father, William, and grandfather, Charles.
