July 22nd marks the birthday of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge’s eldest child Prince George, and as has become a tradition, Kensington Palace have just shared three gorgeous images ahead of the young royal’s sixth birthday.

Getting behind the camera once more, the Duchess of Cambridge captured the three gorgeous portraits of George, two of them taken in the grounds of their home at Kensington Palace and the third, taken during a family holiday.

The first image, shared to the Kensington Palace Instagram page shows Prince George sporting the England football team’s home jersey, as he beams up at the camera.

Beginning the Instagram caption with a balloon and football emoji, the Palace wrote: ” Happy Birthday Prince George!

“The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are very pleased to share new photographs of Prince George to mark His Royal Highness’s sixth birthday. This photograph was taken recently in the garden of their home at Kensington Palace by The Duchess of Cambridge.”

Adding: “Thank you everyone for all your lovely messages!”

The second image shows Prince George in green polo and blue and white stripey shorts which were taken by Kate while the family were on holiday.

George sported a similar coloured polo during a family outing to the royal charity polo match recently, where he was seen playing with his younger siblings, Princess Charlotte, 4, and Prince Louis, 1, and newborn cousin, Archie.

The final photograph is another playful image of the young prince, lying on the grass as he cracks a toothy grin for the camera.

According to The Sun, the Cambridge clan are currently on holiday on the tropical Caribbean island of Mustique, a destination that the family have visited numerous times – what a fun way to spend your sixth birthday!

The images shared today marks the third time the Duchess of Cambridge has shared images of her children this year.

In April she shared three equally as adorable photos of the youngest Cambridge, Prince Louis, to mark his first birthday, which gave us a rare glimpse of how much the young prince has grown.

Similarly for Princess Charlotte’s birthday in May, Kensington Palace shared three absolutely adorable images of the four-year-old also taken by Kate.

With a love for photography Kate has shown her obvious skill over the years, particularly when it comes to images of her children and it’s always a treat when she does.

It also has us wondering whether the Duke and Duchess of Sussex will ask her for expert eye when it comes to snapping some photos of Archie in the future?
