beautiful photos indeed! George is all Middleton but in blonde version.
My least favorite photo is the one with the ice cream and dog, it looks too staged for me. But no doubt these two get in lots of adventures

Wonderful that we got birthday photos.

I loved the pictures! Im glad they were professionally taken and the atmosphere was well suited for a 3 year old.

George is such a cute boy.

Got home and first photo I see is on dinner television. They are taking a poll on if it is ok to feed dogs ice cream. I guess the photo has caused some animal activists to complain as bad for dogs.

Had to come see the rest. I am not surprised by his look. Guessed shorts and striped sweater last night, after looking at Will at 3. At least no plaid shirt under and new colors.

He is cute and sweet pics but wish they were candid and not so staged. Since it is rare we see the kids in action, some candid play photos would be nice.e

All the photos show a very happy and healthy three year old boy and he's just so darned cute!!

My favorite one was the one with Lupo. There is nothing sweeter than the bond between a boy and his dog and, of course, sharing the good stuff is mandatory. There's been a lot of discussion about if ice cream is good for a dog or not and I've heard that dairy products don't mesh well with dogs but then again, they do make special ice cream just for dogs.

I thought it was great to get a few more snippets into things such as the oak and rope swing from Charles. If there's anyone that knows what goes well in an outdoor setting, it'd be Charles. The swing is a classic and its a personal gift that'll endure for years.
I dream of a better tomorrow, where chickens can cross the road and not be questioned about their motives.

I think he has her proportions; he's got quite a long torso, as she does, and proportionately shorter legs.

He is 3 years old. His legs are still short, it normal. Just toddler's body proportions. Legs will be lengthening after his 10 yesrs rapidly.

This set conveys a sense of freedom imo and George looks really comfortable, more than ever...

I considered that before I posted, actually. So I went and looked at pictures of William (again, before I posted) when he was the same age. Even at 3, more of William's height came from his legs.

It's certainly true that the long bones in the legs continue to grow through the teen years, but I think people tend to be long or short torso'd fairly consistently, and I stand by my statement that George gets that feature from his mother.

I think George is right about the same size as his father at the same age.

I think he looks very like William, except he not as a pudgy faced as Will was as a little boy.. and he has dark eyes I think like Kate. Charlotte is a little darling, rather like the Queen...

This is too cute. With all the presents, imagine the look on George's face

At Portsmouth today, William said Prince George got too many things for his birthday. He's far too spoilt

george's birthday pics look so cute. he's an adorable little boy. i was hoping one of the pics would include charlotte though! :)

what a great swing that is, with 'william and catherine' inscribed on it. i wonder who gave them that beautiful and unusual wedding present for their garden. sweet touch! my guess is that it was a friend, as opposed to a government or official present, as it seems a more 'personal' sort of gift.

Prince George and Princess Charlotte, General News Part 2: May 2016

We didn't see George in Charlotte's birthday pictures so why would we think she would be in George's. Plus since Kate didn't take the pictures, there were probably other pictures such a family group picture for their own personal photo collection. So maybe we will see a new photo down the line or in the background on a end table.

The press reported that the swing was a present from Charles and that there are swings with the kids' names too.

My bet would be that for the Cambridge's Christmas card this year, a family shot taken amongst the ones for George's birthday will be used.

I agree. George has an overall more comfortable look. Will be a handsome man, methinks.

I think William was a very good looking little boy so is George. And that's all that needs to be said !

Our Prince George is on the cover of this week's People magazine

Now that he is 3, Prince George is really hitting his stride – one toddler-sized step at a time.

The future king, who celebrated his third birthday with a tea party at home on July 22, is growing in stature and confidence, say those who know him.

"He's a little boy now," a close family friend tells PEOPLE in this week's cover story. "A proper little chap!"

When he's not at the family's London home of Kensington Palace, Princess Charlotte's big brother attends preschool three mornings a week at Westacre Montessori near the family's country home in Norfolk, Anmer Hall.

Does Prince George get more attention than Princess Charlotte?
