Cute Overload: Prince George’s Official First Birthday Photos Are Going To Make You ‘Aww’

The Cambridges Down Under
William & Kate kick off their royal tour with Prince George.
Oh my god. Becky, look at those cheeks.

We should all send our thank you-s to the royal family today for giving us these photos of Prince George, daddy Prince William and mommy Catherine on the eve of George’s first birthday.

I know you guys, it’s been a whole year since the blessed day when George was born. Well technically, it’ll be a year tomorrow, but it’s already tomorrow in England. Now let’s discuss these photos. 

Per the news, the photos were taken on July 2 at the Sensational Butterflies exhibition at the Natural History Museum in London. I love the image of George running free through the butterflies. Or he stomped on them. Either way, I’m sure it was cute.

People has an interview with the photographer who took the photos. Obviously this was my favorite bit, “He’s quick on his feet. He was walking towards me – I was kneeling down to take the picture and he was on top of me as soon as he started walking.” Also, this is the dress that Catherine is wearing. I needs it. I wants it.

Launch the gallery to check out even more royal cuteness. This kid is my favorite. And luckily, he got hair genes from Mr. Middleton.
