I miss the earlier birthday photos. On a swing, or feeding ice cream to his dog. Or Charlotte playing in her chair. Lately they have been like head shots. Tells us what their parent's fashion choices are at best.

I much prefer the candid photos from the polo field. There we see the happy fun little boy with a big grin, playing and enjoying his cousins

Happy birthday to the little prince.
Maybe we'll get another one tomorrow. we can hope.

Perhaps not yet. Young children know the environment they are in and aren’t necessarily aware that other children have different lifestyles. He’ll certainly start figuring it out as he grows older and develops friendships where he sees that other families don’t get all of that attention.

I love the new photo of George and his big five year old smile.
Maybe we’ll see a missing tooth or two in next year’s photo!

The epitome of a happy, healthy boy growing up in a loving, stable environment with loving parents, siblings and family! What more can one ask for? William and Kate are doing a fantastic job as parents and have built a fantastic foundation for a future strong BRF!

Prince George, Princess Charlotte, along with nanny Maria and two bodyguards in Kensington garden. They were heading for the playground. Photo is just over a week old.

I totally agree — he’s a mini-Michael Middleton.

Agree I see mostly Michael Middleton. For the first time though, I see QE2, Prince Charles and Anne in his big smile.

I miss those, too, but I also remember that when my kids were that age we went through a phase where it was very hard to get those natural photos. Kids of George’s age often turn towards the camera and cheese it up with a pose as soon as they see that pictures are being taken, and it can take a little while to break them of that habit.

For me he's always been a blend of Michael and William.

I think we're seeing George in the back seat and the PO in the front passenger seat as that is usually where they sit.

The overall solemn demeanor coupled with the sudden broad, cheeky smile is the Queen all over again.

I think what we are seeing is a little boy abashed at all the people with cameras 'over there' when he is in public. A very honest reaction. (Charlotte is the unusual one). This picture is letting us see what a bright penny George really is in the comfort of his family. It's a fair distinction, I think.

I think George is more reserved like some of the other BRF....Charlotte is more like Harry/William when they were kids.

I agree. I don't think it would have sinked in for George just yet, but by the time they reach a certain age children become more curious and aware of the world so I can imagine that George will realise when he's older. From things like Trooping the Colour and meeting important delegates, he may realise now that he's someone important (as even though he probably socialises with many upper class children they won't be doing official engagements), but he probably won't necessarily equate that to being a future monarch.

I think he looks very much like Michael Middleton, with a bit of William and Diana in the smile. Charlotte looks more like the Windsor and Spencer sides (someone posted a comparison of Charlotte and Diana at similar ages and they look quite similar). I think that Louis looks more Middleton right now, in the photo of him smiling that they released at the christening he looks very much like Kate did as a baby.
