Duchess of Cambridge Photographs Smiling Prince George on 8th Birthday

The little prince, who’s wearing a striped shirt, was photographed in Norfolk, England, near his parents’ home on Queen Elizabeth’s Sandringham Estate. The Defender is a nod to George’s late great-grandfather Prince Philip who died in April, two months short of his 100th birthday.

The Defender was Philip’s all-time favorite automobile. A forest green Land Rover — which he’d customized himself — carried his coffin to St. George’s Chapel on the grounds of Windsor Castle where the funeral took place.

The prince has had a lively summer so far in the runup to his birthday. Last month, he watched England’s national football team play at Wembley Stadium.

He cheered England to victory against Germany in a 2020 UEFA European Football Championship match at the stadium in late June and attended the final, which also took place at Wembley, earlier this month.

Young George is said to be a major soccer fan, which should come as no surprise given his father’s role as president of England’s Football Association.

England’s 2-1 victory against Germany in June took the national team into the quarter finals and gave the country, which remains in the grip of social restrictions, a much-needed boost. The England team eventually lost to Italy in a penalty shootout.

The bells are set to ring at Westminster Abbey to mark the prince’s birthday, a longstanding royal tradition. The bell-ringing was cancelled last year due to lockdown and social distancing restrictions resulting from COVID-19.

The last time Prince George heard the bells ring in his honor was on his sixth birthday two years ago.

According to British press reports, the Central Council of Church Bell Ringers (CCCBR) has released its latest guidance for bell ringing and it is one again allowed, in a well-ventilated setting.

Prince George is preparing to turn eight.

The young royal will celebrate the milestone on Thursday and his parents, Kate Middleton and Prince William, marked the occasion in their traditional manner: By sharing a brand new photo of their son.

In the photo, George beams while wearing a blue and orange striped collared shirt and blue shorts. He appeared to be sitting on the hood of a car for the shot.

"Turning eight(!) tomorrow," read the photo's caption alongside a pair of celebratory emojis.

The caption also revealed that like many of the photos of the royal children the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge have shared recently, the pic was snapped by none other than Middleton herself.

Many fans of the royal family took to the comments to wish the young prince well, as well as to reminisce on when he came into the world.

"I remember when he was born!!! My sister and I were so excited!!!" a follower wrote. "I can’t believe he’s that old already?! Maybe he’ll have one more baby sister? We can only hope!!!"

"Man! how time flies," said another. "Happy Birthday in advance, Prince George Have fun!"

"Aw he is so big and I love his huge smile for his mummy," wrote a third. "Happy birthday sweet Prince George! I wish you all the best, a fun day surrounded by your loved ones and a wonderful year!! We all love you."

Added a third: "Happy Birthday Prince George! I still remember the day you were born, Can’t believe how big you are now."

George will someday become king of the United Kingdom after his father William and grandfather Prince Charles.

It reportedly wasn't long ago that George was told he'd someday fill the position.

According to royal biographer Robert Lacey, George was told "around" his seventh birthday that he'd one day wear the crown.

The Royal Family Released A New Picture Of Prince George For His Birthday

BuzzFeed News 21 July, 2021 - 04:54pm

The picture of the young prince, who is third in line to the British throne, was taken by his mother, Kate.

The image, taken by his mother, Catherine, the Duchess of Cambridge (formerly known as Kate Middleton), shows the future king sitting on the hood of what appears to be a Range Rover in the middle of a field, likely near the family’s Anmer Hall home in Norfolk.

Kate and her husband, Prince William, the Duke of Cambridge, have shared several private family photos of their children with the public this year, with many of them being released in memory of Prince Philip, the Duke of Edinburgh, who died at the age of 99 on April 9.

George has also made more public appearances this year than in years past, most recently appearing at the UEFA Euro 2020 semifinal on June 29 and the final on July 11, where England suffered a heartbreaking overtime loss to Italy in a penalty shootout.

George is the eldest of William and Kate’s three children and is third in line to the British throne, after his grandfather Prince Charles and his father, Prince William.
