The royal couple’s 16-month-old son — third in line to the British throne — shows off his adorably chubby cheeks in the Christmas photos while wearing an equally cute Polarn O. Pyret jumpsuit with a Cath Kinston sweater vest clad with, naturally, royal guards.
The seriously sweet toddler photos were taken by a member of the Duchess and Duke of Cambridge’s staff in late November 2014 in a courtyard at their Kensington Palace home. Little George, who is going to be a big brother come April, was also snapped while on his first royal tour in New Zealand.
In April 1983, a 10-month-old Prince William displayed a similar pout and chubby cheeks while on a royal tour of New Zealand with his mom Princess Diana. See more adorable pics of Prince George.
According to a statement released by the palace, the royal couple released the photos in “grateful acknowledgment of the fact that their request for Prince George to grow up without intrusion from photography has been, and continues to be, honored.”
Prince George is set to celebrate Christmas with his parents at Anmer Hall in Norfolk, where they are currently living. On Christmas Day, the heir will join his mom and dad and visit Queen Elizabeth, Prince Philip, and other royal family members including Prince Charles and Duchess Camilla for lunch with the queen at nearby Sandringham house.
And with that, we give you the cutest prince ever!
