New pictures showing Prince George at play on a swing and with the family dog Lupo have been released by the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge to celebrate their son’s third birthday.
William and Kate thanked well-wishers for messages of support they have received marking their eldest child’s milestone on Friday.
Four images have been issued by the royal couple showing the young prince in the grounds of their Norfolk home Anmer Hall.
A Kensington Palace spokesman said: “The Duke and Duchess hope that people will enjoy seeing these new photographs.
“They would like to thank everyone for all the lovely messages they have received as Prince George celebrates his third birthday.”
Photographer Matt Porteous, who took the pictures in mid-July said: “I really enjoyed the opportunity to take these photographs of Prince George. It was a very relaxed and enjoyable atmosphere. I’m honoured that they have decided to share these images with the public to mark his third birthday.”
