The cake shows two-year-old George wearing the iconic red-and-white outfit he donned for the christening of his baby sister Princess Charlotte in July. The Prince's side swept blonde hair and wide-eyed expression are perfectly defined, as are his little arms and legs.
Lara spent 30 hours making the cake, which stands at just under 3ft tall and is built on a skeleton of steel, wood and PVC tubing. The star baker from the West Midlands, who has previously won awards for her Jennifer Lawrence and Johnny Depp-inspired cakes, entered her Prince George piece at the Cake International competition.
Like children across the world, Prince George will be bouncing around like a "rabbit" on Christmas Eve, his dad Prince William said. In a new interview, William, 33, says that his 2-year-old son now knows about the holidays and is as excited as any other child.
"George will be bouncing around like a rabbit," William told The Big Issue magazine in a new interview, out in the UK on Monday. "I think George will be extremely bouncy this year because he's suddenly worked out what Christmas is all about ... If I get any sleep on Christmas Eve it'll be good."
And William, whose daughter Princess Charlotte will be marking her first Christmas, adds, "So that will be two children, one who suddenly appreciates Christmas, which could be quite challenging. But I'm looking forward to it."
Prince George lends a helping hand! The 2-year-old joined his parents to trim a 9-foot, locally sourced pine at their 10-bedroom Anmer Hall in Norfolk, England, on Dec. 5. The brother of Charlotte, 7 months, “had a blast putting up decorations,” a family source reveals in the new issue of Us Weekly.
Eleven days earlier, the toddler accompanied his mom, Duchess Kate Middleton, 33, to nearby Fakenham Garden Centre, where she picked up a battery-lit star, a roll of gold gauze, and a mini pre-strung tree. “George wanted everything he saw,” says a staffer. “Kate let him choose a couple of ornaments, including a felt penguin.”
Members of the extended royal family enjoyed an afternoon at Buckingham Palace today for the Queen's annual Christmas lunch. Two-year-old Prince George, with a mop of curls and a cute white shirt with blue trim and navy cardigan, stole the show when he arrived at the palace for the festive feast at around 12:30pm this afternoon.
The young prince was seated in the back seat of a royal car with the Duchess of Cambridge, who looked suitably festive in a red coat. In the front passenger seat of the car sat Prince Harry, 31, who looked dapper in a navy suit with light blue tie. The afternoon was a relatively succinct affair with Kate re-emerging at around 4pm, this time sitting in the front seat of the royal car.
Where does the time go – Britain’s Prince George is already starting school. The 2-year-old attended his first day of nursery school today, and proud mum Kate Middleton was there to take some adorable pictures.
Now third in line to the throne, he wore a blue backpack and a quilted navy coat. The school says its approach to learning is based on a child’s ‘natural development’, rather than by rigid developmental standards.
