Prince George is shown wearing a cheeky grin as he stands in front of a red brick wall in the garden at Clarence House.

Matt Porteous took the photo following Prince Louis’ christening on Monday, 9 July 2018.

It certainly has been a big year for the little prince since his last birthday, especially starting primary school at Thomas’ Battersea last year, where he is known as George Cambridge.

He was one of four adorable page boys, with Princess Charlotte as a bridesmaid, at the wedding of his uncle Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, now the Duke and Duchess of Sussex.

This wasn’t the first time Prince George and his sister have been young bridal attendants.

Last year on 20 May 2017, Prince George and Princess Charlotte were part of the bridal party at his maternal aunt Pippa Middleton and James Matthews’ wedding at St Mark’s Church at Englefield Estate in Berkshire, close to their grandparents’ home at Bucklebury Manor.

He accompanied his father and sister to meet his new younger brother, Prince Louis, born on St George’s Day, 23 April 2018.

He accompanied his parents on a tour of Australia and New Zealand when he was nine months old, including opening the Bilby Enclosure at Taronga Zoo.

Former Prime Minister Tony Abbott predicted he would be welcomed back to Australia in the future as King George VII.

He is third in the line of succession to the British throne, following his grandfather the Prince of Wales and father The Duke of Cambridge.

Prince George Alexander Louis was born on 22 July 2013 at 4.24 pm (local time) in the Lindo Wing at St Mary’s hospital in Paddington, like his father, uncle and siblings.
