After reports warned (threatened?) royal fans that they might not be getting a birthday portrait of Prince George this year, Kate Middleton and Buckingham Palace relented, sharing a new snapshot of the future king to honor his eighth birthday tomorrow. The tradition continued with the shot being shared from the Cambridges's social media channels.
