Prince George walks unaided in a new official photo released ahead of his birthday. The prince, who will turn one on Tuesday, July 22, looks totally adorable in the photo shared on Saturday. He can be seen wearing a blue Petit Bateau overall, matching shirt and shoes. His arms are flailing in the air as he walks.
The cute photo was taken by Press Association photographer John Stillwell when the young prince and his parents went to the "Sensational Butterflies" exhibition at the Natural History Museum in London on July 2. The photographer shared his impression on the little prince, telling Us Weekly that Prince George was a "confident" boy.
"He was very lively, very confident and very sure of himself," Stillwell said. "He's a very determined young boy. And who does he look like? I'd have to say his dad, William."
Prince William gushed over his son as he launched the Fields in Trust Centenary Fields campaign recently. Speaking to a primary school teacher named Gill Naylor, he said, "I think George will be running faster than me very soon." A Leicester resident named Mavis Jarvis additionally shared, "He said George is charging around and opens doors."
The Duke and the Duchess of Cambridge reportedly will hold a party in Kensington Palace to celebrate Prince George's first birthday with their family. A source said that the celebration "may extend to the garden if the weather remains glorious."
