Prince George, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge's eldest-child, is nine. The young royal celebrated his ninth birthday on 22 July, with a new portrait taken by his mother Kate for the occasion.
George Alexander Louis of Cambridge was born at 4.24pm on 22 July, 2013, in the Lindo Wing of St Mary’s Hospital, in Paddington, London, and weighed 8lb 6oz.
He was christened by the Archbishop of Canterbury in the Chapel Royal of St James’s Palace in October 2013. He wore a handmade replica of the traditional christening robe worn by royals for generations.
George made his public debut on the hospital steps just one day later, wrapped in a white merino wool shawl, cradled in Kate and Williams arms.
As a great-grandchild to the Queen, he is third in line to the throne, after his father and grandfather Prince Charles.

George went on his first royal tour when he was just nine months old, accompanying the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge on their official three-week tour of New Zealand and Australia.
George spent his early years in Norfolk with his parents, and attended Westacre Montessori School nursery there.
Now he attends Thomas’s Battersea Prep School, though he and his sister, Princess Charlotte will be moving schools when the Cambridge family make the move to Windsor at the end of the summer.
George has been called “funny and feisty and cheeky” by his godmother Julia Samuel, a long-term friend of the late Diana, Princess of Wales.
Joining his parents, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, George has taken on more public appearances this year, along with his sister Charlotte, and appeared on the Buckingham Palace balcony with other members of the Royal Family at the Queen's Platinum Jubilee.
