As every year, this year, on the birthday of Prince George, the Dukes of Cambridge, Catherine Middleton and Prince William shared a new photo of their offspring.
“It’s eight!” It is the new birthday photo of the culprit, traditionally taken annually by Duchess Catherine herself, who loves to photograph her children.
This time, George is captured with a wide smile sitting in the Land Rover Defender SUV in honor of Prince Philip, the boy’s great-grandfather, who left Anapil in April.
The Land Rover Defender is considered part of the image of the Duke of Edinburgh, as Philip regularly drove such a car. Even the coffin with the remains of Philip was transported by this car brand on the day of the funeral.

Doubts about posting photos
A few days before the prince’s birthday, reports appeared in British media that Prince William and Kate Middleton were considering not posting a photo of Prince George on the occasion of his birthday.
Royal family biographer Angela Levin was said to have suggested to the couple that this tradition not be continued this year, as Prince George’s latest public appearance had been ridiculed on social media.
This time, the style of Prince George, who watched the European Football Championship with his parents at the stadium, caught the netizens. The boy supported the English national football players who competed with the Italians in a suit and not a sports shirt. Netizens laughed that the boy’s clothes were not suitable for watching sports competitions.
Prince William came with the Duchess of Cambridge, Catherine, and her son, George, to support the English / Scanpix team.
Levin told British reporters that the ridiculous statements about the seven-year-old son’s style had hurt the Dukes of Cambridge.
“They’re considering not sharing the photos this year because they’re really upset by the rudeness of people talking about the seven-year-old. But maybe they can still ignore it,” Levin said.
The biographer of the royal family said that Prince George’s official style for the football match was not chosen by chance; in this way, the parents try to get to know the boy from an early age in the protocol requirements.
“It is Prince George’s duty to learn this,” he explained.
People.lt He recalls that Prince William’s eldest daughter and the Duchess of Cambridge, Catherine, was born on July 22, 2013 at A Mary’s Hospital, the same place where the boy’s father was born three decades ago.
Prince George is the third in line to the throne of the United Kingdom, after his grandfather, Prince Charles, and his father.
