I'ma let you finish, but Prince George gave the best Father's Day gift this year.
The tiny royal attended a charity polo match on Sunday with mom Kate Middleton and he was photographed taking his first steps in public. We're not sure how Prince William maintained his focus with all this action happening on the sidelines, as he played for the Jerudong Park Trophy against a team led by his brother, Prince Harry.
Dressed to the nines in a white polo shirt, red seersucker overalls and his trusty navy pre-walker shoes, Prince George hobbled along the field while holding his mother's hand. Once he found his footing, he was...
Prince George even managed to play a little football under Kate's watchful eye. With his first birthday coming up on July 22, the royal baby sure is growing up fast!
He's grown up in front of our eyes, his every milestone captured by the cameras around the world and now, just days before Prince George Alexander Louis will celebrate his first birthday, Kensington Palace released a new snap of the growing prince walking.It was taken by Press Association Staff photographer John Stillwell at the Sensational Butterflies exhibit at the Natural History Museum in early July.
The young prince was born July 22, 2013, at 4:24 p.m. in the Lindo Wing at St Mary's Hospital, with thousands of screaming fans and journalists outside. In what they called it the Great Kate Wait, the media camped out for nearly three weeks outside the hospital, awaiting the arrival of the 8-pound, 6-ounce heir to the throne.
Finally Kate stepped out in a pale blue polka dot Jenny Packham dress reminiscent of the green Catherine Walker polka dot dress Princess Diana wore more than 30 years earlier when she debuted a baby Prince William. "He's got a good pair of lungs on him that's for sure," William joked to the crowd, perhaps a sign of what a boisterous boy little Baby Cambridge would become.
His dad, Prince William, joked that he would soon be outrunning him. And here is the evidence of little Prince George's rapid progress. Just before his first birthday on July 22, his proud parents have released a picture showing George walking toward the camera. William and Kate, both 32, chose a butterfly exhibit at London's Natural History Museum as the location for this photo, released in honor of their son's big milestone.
Although the Duke and Duchess have been at pains to maintain George’s privacy since he was born on July 22 last year, they are acknowledging the intense global interest in their son’s first year by releasing three pictures of him. This is the first, issued yesterday by Kensington Palace. He is seen wearing his signature dungarees (this pair is by cult French yummy mummy label Petit Bateau), a smart navy polo shirt and navy blue Alex cruiser shoes designed to protect infant feet.
Happy holidays, Prince George fans! Prince William and Princess Kate are offering their season's greetings with three new photos of their rosy-cheeked son. The pictures offer a glimpse at three new faces of the little royal.
There's the knowing smirk, as if he's about to set off on a new mission; there's the inquisitive sideways glance, perhaps at one of his parents standing behind the photographer; and there's the cheeky grin. The shots were taken in late November by Ed Lane Fox, Prince Harry's private secretary, and show George, who will be 17 months old on Dec. 22, seated on some stone steps in a courtyard at London's Kensington Palace.
George watchers will notice his longer, thicker hair is neatly combed and parted from the right, and that he's still blond like his dad. The toddler is wearing a navy vest decorated with soldiers over a white, long-sleeve top, and shorts with knee-high socks and navy leather Start-Rite buckle shoes.
His parents acknowledge that there haven't been any new, sanctioned images of the future king since his first birthday in July, and "are well aware of the interest in him and are keen to share some special moment in his life," a palace source tells PEOPLE. The royal couple saw Christmas and the end of the year as the perfect time to update people on the prince's progress with the new shots.
And those close to the couple say there is a "grateful acknowledgment" from the royals of the fact that "their request for Prince George to grow up without intrusion from photography has been, and continues to be, honored." George, who dad William revealed earlier this week loves playing on his iPad, spent time in Bucklebury with his grandmother, Carole Middleton, while William and Kate were on their successful royal visit to New York and Washington earlier this week.
Prince George looked super cute in his official Christmas pictures, but we know the tot is too young to pick out his own clothes. Leave that task to his equally fashionable mom, Kate Middleton. Kate personally selects the 17-month-old’s outfits and for this, she enlisted the help from the Amaia Kids boutique in London. HELLO! Fashion spoke exclusively with Amaia Perso, co-owner of the shop where Kate visited and picked up the navy corduroy shorts and socks for the pictures.
"She is really lovely and a pleasure to help," explains Amaia. "She knows exactly what she likes and wants for her son and tends to pick out the items herself." Amaia is thrilled and “truly honored” that Kate picked items from her store. She didn’t realize until she found them in HELLO! US’ sister publication in the UK. She first saw the pictures while running errands. She says, "While I was out food shopping on Sunday (and) I caught sight of the front cover of HELLO! magazine!"
Amaia Kids has tons of celeb fans including Victoria Beckham, Kate Hudson and Claudia Schiffer, and will be celebrating its 10th anniversary next year. "We are a small London-based brand and out of all the brands she could have chosen, she came to us,” the co-owner stated. “We are really grateful to her for supporting small businesses like ours and most of all, we are delighted that she likes our pieces."
Now that the world has seen George looking adorable in his outfit – which also featured a cute blue London Guards sweater vest by Cath Kidston and Start-Rite Jo First Walking Shoes – all items are naturally in high demand. So much so, that Amaia Kids is replenishing its stock of the navy corduroy shorts, which will be available again soon. Even George has the magic touch when it comes to clothes selling out.
The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge stunned parents at a winter festival when they turned up unannounced and forked out £15 for Prince George to meet Father Christmas. Ordinary families were shocked to see the 16-month-old Royal toddler touring the Santa's Magical Journey attraction with William and Kate. The young prince gazed in awe as an animated reindeer, penguins, polar bears and elves set among twinkling lights, tinsel and fake snow during his hour-long visit.
He also got to see real life elves hard at work making toys in Santa's workshop and met giant-sized teddy bears preparing to load presents into his sleigh. The highlight of the treat was when he walked through a magical forest and go into Santa's house so he could meet the great man himself. With William and Kate stood beside him, the little Royal had a chat with Father Christmas before being given a gift-wrapped wooden train as a present. He and his parents joined members of the public to visit the grotto at the Thursford event centre, around 20 miles from their Norfolk home at Anmer.
They secretly booked tickets for the attraction in advance, paying the standard entrance fee of £9.50 each and £15.50 for George. William and Kate, who is pregnant with her second child, first visited the centre for a Christmas Spectacular stage show in aid of the Teenage Cancer Trust in 2010. Staff were only told that they were getting a second unofficial Royal visit shortly before their arrival with a group of friends on Saturday morning.
The couple were given a 15-minute slot when they had to arrive to ensure a smooth flow of visitors and happily mingled with other parents. Geraldine Rye, the general manager at Thursford, said: "George seemed to have a lovely time. When I saw him, he was walking around.
"It was a private visit and they were not given any special treatment. We only knew shortly beforehand that they were coming. "They went around the winding path in our exhibition centre and would have seen animated animals like polar bears, penguins and reindeers as well as elves and snowmen. "It is a fantasy land and the animated elves tell stories which you can listen to as you go round. It is all very traditional and is designed for families with young children.
