Kate Middleton and Prince William's oldest child, Prince George, is inching closer to one decade old.

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge marked their son's birthday with the release of a smiling portrait of him on holiday in Norfolk. The post read: "George is turning 9!" Kate took the portrait of him, as she typically does of all her children for their birthdays.

A source spoke to Us Weekly earlier this year about what George is like.

“His confidence has grown leaps and bounds over the last couple of years,” the source started. “He is assertive, self-assured and knows what he wants, and doesn’t hold back on speaking his mind. His personality is really starting to shine.”

The source added that George is also “incredibly tidy” and “immaculate,” but still has a “cute, mischievous side.”

“He likes to play pranks on his parents and siblings, and making everyone laugh,” the source explained. “Despite the responsibilities he’ll entail in his future role, Kate and William don’t want to see him grow up too quickly. They’re determined to give him as much of a normal childhood as possible and it’s working wonders. He’s such a lovable, down-to-earth little boy.”

George has a keen interest in art, the source revealed: “He copies the art and photographs that are up in his Kensington Palace and Anmer Hall homes. He’ll spend hours painting and drawing and absolutely loves it. Kate and William are astonished by how good he is and have framed some of his paintings and given them to [Queen Elizabeth] as gifts. His favorite thing to do is draw pictures of his family.”

Happy birthday, Prince George!
