that last picture of George and William together is my favorite of this day - just a boy and his dad sharing a love of airplanes.

For a kid that loves airplanes, this event was the one that dreams are made of for George. It might have been a bit overwhelming at first but I thought it fitting that the last picture on the first page listed from Getty showed George taking off at a fast pace towards a helicopter. Things kind of warmed up from that point and the photos are excellent.

It truly was an event where not only the interest of a child was a big factor but also a treat for royal watchers having George appear with his parents on a official engagement.

Not only is there noise. There is a bunch of strangers. It's different from the balcony of BP for the fly past with his family. It's probably why he kept wanting to be picked up.

On TV and from a distance, these aircraft also don't look so big, imposing and scary too. George quickly got the swing of things though as he actually got to go inside of the aircraft and get to pretend to be a pilot like Daddy. Reminds me of pictures taken years ago with a happy William and Harry in camouflage gear getting an inside view of aircraft. Its the kind of thing little boys dream of.

I love that the couple brought George along! And may i say that I kind of expected that? It was also a wise PR move imo.
The little boy looked adorable and very curious and interested in what he saw. When he wanted to be rushed on the arms of his mom, he made me smile broadly.

Nice to see the Cambridge's working. Loved all the pix of the family and George seemed to enjoy himself once the noise was taken care of. Kate looked to be having so much fun and loved to show off George.

George looks so much like William ...and then you can see a glimpse of Mike in his features.

Lovely day for him/them...lots of great pics. Great to see he's very close to his mother (and father)....lovely to see them all together for an event.

He looks a bit his every male relative. Imo he resembles more Mike, much less Charles and almost nothing from William.

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge have made a special visit today (Friday, July 8) to the Air Tattoo to mark the 75th anniversary of the RAF Air Cadets.

The Duchess, who is Patron of the Air Cadet Organisation, was present as the airshow staged its official celebrations for the Air Cadets' 75th anniversary where they met just some of the 1,500-plus air cadets taking part in the airshow this weekend.

On arrival, the Duke and Duchess were presented to Air Chief Marshal Sir Andrew Pulford Chief of the Air Staff, Air Marshal Sir Kevin Leeson, Chairman RAFCT, General David Goldfein, Commander USAF and Dame Janet Trotter, Lord Lieutenant of Gloucestershire, before meeting 12 cadets, Air Cadet Commandant, Air Commodore Dawn McCafferty, and Air Cadet Ambassador, Honorary Group Captain Carol Vorderman.

I wasn't expecting to see George at the event today, so that was a nice surprise to come home to! I think he seemed a little scared by the noise and the large planes. But that's only natural for a young child, and he seemed to be rather excited about the helicopter, which was cute to see.

I think George looks like a mixture of Charles, William and Catherine. He's a very sweet little boy, and appears to be rather tall, too.

I have really enjoyed watching the videos. George's relationship with his parents is very sweet, lovely to see the way he reaches for his mummy!

I think people see what they want to see. He has always resembled a blonde Michael and more Middleton than Windsor. I've heard people say Charlotte looks like Diana.

Gorgeous photos especially the close ups. Of course he was a bit scared of the crowds and the noise but soon cheered up. I think George looks like a young William around the nose but has Mike Middleton's eyes. He probably loved it all, especially getting the stickers! It's not George's first public engagement though. As well as an appearance in New Zealand he went to the zoo in Sydney and saw the bilby.

He has Mike's face shape and eyes...the rest is very William to me.

I always hear how Charlotte looks like Her Majesty although IMO she looks a lot like Catherine's mother, Carol. But I prefer to wait until Charlotte's second birthday to decide what is my opinion.

William even in toddlerhood had a thin long face when his son has it more wide and rounded. And it doesn't resemble Charles's face too (maybe for the better) But Charles's ears are bit like his grandchild's)))

I've thought for awhile Charlotte looks like Carole...that may change but right now she looks like George and Carole.

Features may change but not too radically. The genes are set. Her basic face structure and shape are already done. Nose shape is unknown yet and chin is still undefined. But head shape and eyes will not change.
