Prince George: 15 photographs to mark the future king’s fifth birthday

Kensington Palace releases image of smiling young royal outside Clarence House

A relaxed-looking Prince George smiles outside Clarence House in a new photograph released by Kensington Palace to mark his fifth birthday.

The Royal Mint also issued a new £5 coin, featuring St George and the Dragon, as the future king celebrated his special day on Sunday.

The young Prince is believed to be on holiday with his parents, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, and two younger siblings, Charlotte, three, and three-month-old Louis, on the small private Caribbean island of Mustique.

According to royal blogger Tea Time With The Cambridges, the family were spotted arriving at Saint Lucia airport last Wednesday and then boarded a private plane to the island. With 100 luxury villas and a no-fly zone, it is one of the Cambridges’ preferred destinations.

George’s grandparents Michael and Carole Middleton, and his aunt and uncle Pippa and James Matthews, are said to have also joined them. “It certainly sounds like George will have a blast,” says The Sun.

 “There have been whispers of a garden party planned for when the family gets back from holiday to celebrate the birthday with friends and family,” adds the Daily Express. Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are expected to be invited, along with George’s classmates from Thomas’s Battersea school in south London.
