He might be a future king but these adorable snaps show that Prince George has no heirs and graces.
As he approaches his seventh birthday on Wednesday, George shows he’s just like any other kid when it comes to having fun.
From blowing bubbles to building dens, he is full of energy.
A snap of him rolling around in the grass in his England shirt, taken by his mum Kate, Duchess of Cambridge, to celebrate his sixth birthday shows his allegiance to the beautiful game.
From the moment his first baby pictures appeared with his parents and their spaniel Lupo, Prince William and Kate’s eldest has enthralled the world.
Dubbed Curious George, he is not shy of the camera, from his first balcony appearance at 23 months when he waved at a Red Arrows flypast, to the moment he pressed his nose to a plane window on an official trip.
William once dubbed George “a little bit of a rascal” but there was no sign of his boisterous side as he cuddled up to his sister Charlotte after her birth in 2015.
She quickly mastered the royal wave but big brother George refused to play ball when he visited new arrival Prince Louis after his birth in 2018.
And it seems George is clearly boss. When the duchess was asked why he wasn’t on the royal tour of India in 2016, she joked: “He’s too naughty. He would be running all over the place.” Just like any other little boy, then.
Prince George’s godmother recently revealed the heartwarming gift-giving tradition she does for the young royal each birthday.
Julia Samuel borrowed the sweet idea from her pal Princess Diana and has a special surprise in store for George’s seventh birthday on July 22.
Ms Samuel, 60, was a long-time friend of Diana and is godmother to both Prince William and George.
She described how she buys ‘impossible’ toys for the family that William then spends days attempting to put together with cautious assembling.
Ms Samuel said: “I do to George what [Diana] did to us, which is give impossible toys that are really noisy and take a lot of making.
“William then has to spend days putting together. And then put all the machinery together, and it makes awful tooting noises and lights flashing and all of that.”
Seeing William putting the toys together with difficult is an endless source of amusement for the family – especially for “cheeky” George.
Watching William struggle to assemble the toys “makes me laugh, and it makes George laugh”, she added.
Ms Samuel made the comments as she appeared on the podcast How to Fail with Elizabeth Day.
Ms Samuel added that George is “amazing” — “He’s funny and feisty and cheeky and God she [Diana] would have loved him so much,” she said.
“That is heartbreaking for all of them.”
The podcast was released on July 1, on what would have been Princess Diana’s 59th birthday.
Ms Samuel also said her favorite memory of the royal was “her laugh.”
Therapist Ms Samuel was forced to apologise on TV earlier this year as she promoted a new book on ITV’s Lorraine.
She turned the air blue and said a rude word while speaking about how people can cope while having a bad day.
Ms Samuel said: “You would go to your friend, ‘I’m having a s***e week,” I’m not sleeping, I’m furious with so and so I did a terrible show, something, something, something’.
“And then by the time you’ve had a cup of coffee and you’ve had a hug and you’ve roared with laughter maybe you’ve watched something funny on telly, it lessens. Whereas if you keep that in your system it kind go grows and gets bigger.”
She was forced to apologise at the end of the interview, but admitted that most viewers probably didn’t even notice what was said.
Lorraine explained: “I’ve got to say sorry for a wee tiny bad word but I’m sure you didn’t notice.”
