Prince George celebrates his first birthday on Tuesday. The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge have thanked well-wishers as Prince George celebrates his first birthday, the BBC reports.
Two new pictures of the third in line to the throne have been released to mark the occasion on Tuesday.
One shows Prince George transfixed by a butterfly, while a second shows him with his mother and father, staring at an object above their heads.
The pictures were taken a few weeks ago at London’s Natural History Museum by the Press Association’s John Stillwell.
In a statement the duke and duchess thanked people for their “warm and generous good wishes”.
The couple said: “We would like to take this opportunity on George’s first birthday to thank everyone over the last year, wherever we have met them, both at home and overseas, for their warm and generous good wishes to George and our family.”
The duke and duchess are expected to hold a birthday party for the young prince on Tuesday at their Kensington Palace apartment.
Prince George was first revealed to the public on the steps of St Mary’s hospital in London on 23 July 2013.
