Prince George’s Birthday: How Did The Young Royal Spend His Fifth Birthday?

He is currently on vacation with his family in the Caribbean.

Most five-year-olds are satisfied with cake, party games and presents for their birthdays, it’s a bit different for the heir to the British throne. Prince George just celebrated his fifth birthday in style. He is currently with his family on a private island in the Caribbean.

There were rumors that the Cambridge is currently on vacation, which would mark their first vacation as a family of five. A source finally confirmed the rumors that Will, Kate, and their three children were all on holiday in Mustique, an island in St. Vincent and the Grenadines. Kensington Palace is yet to release a statement, and most likely won’t, given that this is a personal trip.

Although Will and Kate were away from home on George’s birthday on Sunday, they did, however, mark the milestone publicly.  The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge released a new portrait of their oldest son, along with a message of thanks to loyal fans. “The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are very pleased to share a new photograph of Prince George to mark his fifth birthday – thank you, everyone, for your lovely messages,” reads the statement.

Taken by Matt Porteous, the photo shows Prince George with a huge grin shortly after his brother Prince Louis’s christening ceremony.

We probably won’t be seeing Prince George during the next month, though there is a pretty big chance that the Palace will release another portrait when he returns to school in September. If they choose to forgo that photo, rumor has it we’ll see him reprise his role as a page boy in Princess Eugenie’s wedding come October.
