Jolly George marks five years

Central Station | 23 Jul 2018

Yesterday was the big day for Queen Elizabeth's great grandson, who is third in line to the throne, as he celebrated his fifth birthday.

George, the oldest of Prince William and Kate's three children, was photographed in the garden of his home in Clarence House, central London, after the christening of his brother Louis earlier this month.

But he was actually spending his birthday on the Caribbean island of Mustique in Saint Vincent and the Grenadines with his family.

George Alexander Louis of Cambridge was born in St Mary's Hospital, Paddington, in 2013, weighing about 3.8 kilos.

He was a page boy at the wedding of his uncle Prince Harry to Meghan Markle in May.

He recently completed his first year at school.

George is said to love helicopters and flying - perhaps taking after his father, who worked as an RAF search and rescue helicopter pilot. The Royal Mint has issued a pound5 coin with St George and the Dragon on the reverse.
