How is it possible that George is celebrating his eighth birthday? Great photo of a very happy boy.

Happy B-day George.

Looks more & more like Earl Spencer.

Agreed! He still looks a lot like the Middleton side of the gene pool. Charlotte is Prince William's mini-me

Talking

He looks so much like William.

Dare I say, given the orange and blue stripes, that young George might, just might be a fan of the New York Mets baseball team?

Cover up the eyes and forehead and George is all William. The older he gets, the more the Windsor genes take over, much like his dad.

I really love the fact that George's Mum shares her wonderful photos with us. How does eight years go so quickly?

Dad's genes coming through! He seems like a relaxed, happy little kid. I hope he will be well-adjusted to his future role, growing up as he is in a stable and strong family unit with plenty of examples of positive, healthy relationships would surely help.

Prince George looks quite a lot like Grandfather Michael Middleton.

I agree. He has always been a mini-Michael Middleton

Lovely photo of Prince George with his delightful smile!

Can't believe he is eight years old now, time really flies!

The birthday pics they release look the same for all the children, just a close up of their faces smiling. It's a shame they can't put out nicer ones as I always think it makes the pictures look grudged , as though they only do it because they more or less have to.

How would 'nicer ones' look like?

George looks like a healthy, happy little boy! I think it's a very nice picture.

(If he'd been posed differently, people might complain they couldn't see his face.)

Well for a birthday perhaps one with his cake but William dosn't want the public to see a single thing about their lives and that's why the backgrounds are always blurred out too. As I said, the pictures never give the impression of being released with any goodwill towards the public but they basically have to to it if they want the Monarchy to continue.

My goodness eight years has flown by quickly! What a lovely photo of George...I can already see what a handsome young man he'll be over the next few years but I think several of us might always have a soft spot for the toothy grins of his childhood years. It really is so nice to see such relaxed glimpses of a young George when we'll eventually get to see so much formality.

As people in the public domain, the Cambridge family have a fine line to tread: share enough so that the public get to celebrate alongside George, and at the same time, maintain their privacy and keep some distance. I think they do this well. We saw a lot more of the children last year during the height of the pandemic, when the nation did need cheering up. Perhaps less is needed now.

That the pictures released are not formal portraits taken by a professional but pictures taken by their mother in a relaxed, informal atmosphere, to me, reveals a lot more of the personalities of the children than any "cake" might do.
