The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, Prince William and wife Kate Middleton, both 32, are highly guarded of their little royal, Prince George, 17 months, and earlier this year William and Kate were ready to take legal action after paparazzi were interfering with George’s life.
However a palace source told People magazine, “[we] are well aware of the interest in him and are keen to share some special moments in his life,” and the palace chose the holidays as a perfect time to update the world on George growing up with three new pictures.
The pictures were taken in November and show little George looking adorable on the steps of a courtyard at London’s Kensington Palace.
With dad’s blonde hair, mom’s gorgeous smile and rosy chubby cheeks, the prince, who is third in line to the British throne, looks perfectly happy.
His holiday attire included a navy blue sweater vest donning none other than royal guards over top of a long-sleeve white shirt and knee-high socks with black shorts.
George better appreciate the single spotlight now, as he will be a big brother come next spring and will have to make room on those steps for his sibling.
The holiday season will be a busy one for the royal family as they will head to the newly renovated Sandringham estate in Norfolk and spend Christmas day with George’s great-grandmother Queen Elizabeth at her Sandringham House.
