Swing, swing from the tangles of our hearts! If you saw and loved Prince George‘s adorable 3rd birthday photos, then we know you also eyed the beyond sweet, personalized “William & Catherine” swing he was standing on. Sound the royal trumpets: We know exactly where it came from.
The future king of England, who celebrated his birthday on Friday, July 22, was perched on the Oak & Rope Company’s Personalized Oak Garden Tree Swing ($221, notonthehighstreet.com). The handcrafted garden piece, which is made in England, is accented by a traditional Manila rope (available in three lengths). And it’s also large enough for adults to sit on, so it makes perfect sense that Prince William and Duchess Kate‘s names are emblazoned on the side.
There’s only one small snag for American fans: While the company does ship internationally, the swing, which is believed to be a wedding gift, cannot be delivered to the United States. (Tear!)
The photos of George, the eldest child of the duke and duchess, were released the morning of his birthday, July 22. “Can’t believe it’s been three years already!” Kensington Palace shared via its official Instagram page. “The Duke and Duchess would like to thank everyone for all the lovely messages they have received for Prince George’s 3rd birthday, and are delighted to share four new photographs of Prince George to mark his third birthday, taken by photographer Matt Porteous at their home in Norfolk in mid-July.”
George wore the sold-out, marine-inspired Sunuva blue-and-white-striped T-shirt ($36.50 for a similar style, sunuva.com) in the swing photos and a snap with the family pup, Lupo. He switched into the tan-and-blue-striped Pepa & Co. whale-print sweater ($44 on sale, pepaandcompany.com) for another photo that showed him exploring the stunning grounds of his family’s countryside home.
