Prince William Says Prince George Was ‘Far Too Spoilt’ for His Third Birthday

Royal parents, they’re just like Us! Prince William told a curious 10-year-old at a sailing event on Sunday, July 24, that Prince George received more than his share of gifts for his third birthday on Friday, July 22.

When Zak Kay, from St. Paul’s Catholic Primary School in Portsmouth, asked William what presents little George got on his big day, William replied, “I am not telling. He got too many things, he’s far too spoilt, [and] he’s not into boats yet.”

William, 34, and Kate, the Duchess of Cambridge, also 34, released new photos of their adorable tot on his birthday looking dapper and quite grown up. (They similarly released cute photos of their daughter, Princess Charlotte, in May in honor of her first birthday.)

In one of the images, George looks off into the distance while balancing on an oversize rope swing while clad in a blue-and-white striped T-shirt and matching blue shorts. In another, he shows off his royal good looks in a blue-and-tan striped sweater and sharp khaki shorts.

The portraits were taken by Matt Porteous at the Duke and Duchess’ home in Norfolk, England, in mid-July.

At the sailing event on Sunday, Will and Kate cheered on Sir Ben’s Land Rover BAR team as they competed on the Solent River in the America’s Cup World Series. They met with a group of kids who had been out with the team the day before, including Zak, who won a competition to design the trophy for the Portsmouth ACWS event.
