Prince George, royal rapscallion and older brother to Charlotte and Louis, turned five on Sunday and Kensington Palace knows just how to grab our attention: with an adorable photo release of the birthday boy.
The photo shows the five-year-old style icon smiling in all his glory like a child who doesn't yet realize the burden of being third in line to the throne or isn't at all bothered by the attention his new Aunt Meghan is getting.
The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are very pleased to share a new photograph of Prince George to mark his fifth birthday – thank you everyone for your lovely messages 🎈

The photo was taken on July 9 as part of the christening of Prince Louis but wasn't released until Saturday ahead of George's birthday.
There's no word on what the prince's plans were for his fifth birthday but if there's any justice in the palace, he celebrated with cake, ice cream, presents, maybe a magician, and, if he was truly blessed, a bounce house.
