Prince George turns 7: Queen shares adorable picture of great-grandson in t-shirt to wish him happy birthday
The Queen has wished her great-grandson Prince George a very happy birthday on Twitter by sharing a sweet picture of him. On Wednesday, July 23, George turned seven. With the picture of the young prince, the official twitter account of Queen Elizabeth wrote a message that read: “Wishing Prince George a very happy birthday today!” along with a celebratory cake emoji.

After the Queen's birthday wish, Prince Charles and Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall also wished their grandson by writing: “Wishing Prince George a very happy seventh birthday today!” To mark the special occasion, the official social media account of Kate and Prince William released two photographs of their eldest son. Both the pictures were reportedly taken by Kate earlier in July at the family’s Norfolk home, Anmer Hall, where George and his siblings, five-year-old Princess Charlotte, and two-year-old Prince Louis, spent their lockdown. Reports claimed that the doting parents have planned to host a home birthday party for their son.
The pictures showed Geroge wearing t-shirt, and not the frilled Peter Pan-collar shirts that the Duchess of Cambridge earlier loved to dress him in. In one of the pictures, he was seen in camouflage green t-shirt — an apt choice given the fact that one day he will inherit his great-grandmother’s mantle as Head of the Armed Forces. The second picture showed Geroge donning an olive green polo shirt and shorts. A Kensington Palace spokesman said, “The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are delighted to share two new photographs of Prince George ahead of his seventh birthday tomorrow. The photographs were taken earlier this month by The Duchess.”
In the snaps, George resembled his maternal uncle James Middleton. Like him, George also loves sports and outdoor activities. His grandfather Prince Charles reportedly loves his eldest grandson’s interests and is proud that he has inherited his love for the countryside. According to reports, the lockdown period has been kind of a boon for George and his two siblings as they got to spend much of their time outside in the fresh air at the family's Norfolk home. Their parents, Kate and William, have also been doing their best to homeschool them. However, the Cambridges have admitted that homeschooling is not easy at all.
Earlier, Kate shared that George has been jealous of his younger sister Charlotte because her homework from their school, Thomas's Battersea, is more fun and less challenging than his. “George gets very upset because he wants to do Charlotte's projects. Because making things like spider sandwiches is far cooler than doing literacy work!” Kate revealed.
Geroge, whose official name is Prince George Alexander Louis of Cambridge, was born on July 23, 2017, in the private Lindo Wing of St Mary's Hospital, Paddington. At around 4.24 pm, he arrived in this world weighing 8lb 6oz (3.7 Kg). The little one made his first public appearance on July 24 on the steps of the hospital, wrapped in a white merino wool shawl, cradled in the arms of his parents.
