In case you’re unaware (who are we kidding?), a certain mini royal celebrates his 6th birthday today—Prince George! To mark the occasion, Kensington Palace released a series of three photographs over the weekend captured by his mom, the Duchess of Cambridge. The pics are so charming and adorably Prince George that they caught the attention of two other favorite royals—Meghan Markle and Prince Harry—and you need to see how they wished the prince a happy birthday.
In the photo series released by the palace, there are two pictures of Prince George wearing an England national team soccer jersey and playing in the family’s garden at their literally palatial full-time residence at Kensington. There’s one other of Prince George on vacation rocking windswept hair and a little polo at what appears to be a camp site. That’s the picture the Duke and Duchess of Sussex opted to comment on. (Guess they’re not soccer fans.)
“Happy Birthday! Wishing you a very special day and lots of love!” the Duke and Duchess of Sussex wrote using their IG handle @sussexroyals. They even threw in birthday cake and balloon emojis for good measure (aka further proof that Markle is the one running their Instagram account).
This isn’t the first time the duke and duchess have shared well wishes on another royal’s birthday. They also left sweet notes for Prince William, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis on their special days. Unfortunately, they didn’t yet have a joint social media account in January when the Duchess of Cambridge celebrated her 37th birthday.
Hey, there’s always next year. For now, we’ll just be enjoying these new portraits of George and his missing teeth.
