This Friday Prince George, Prince William and Kate Middleton’s oldest child, is turning nine, so to celebrate his birthday the Queen’s communications team shared a special photo on social media of the monarch and her great-grandson.
The photo shared on Twitter shows the Queen and the young Prince smiling at each other on the balcony of Buckingham Palace during the final Pageant celebration of the Platinum Jubilee.
The accompanying caption read as follows: “Happy ninth birthday Prince George!” with a birthday cake emoji.

The Queen looked as elegant as ever in a vibrant green outfit complete with a matching bright green hat. Prince George also impressed with a navy blue suit and tie as he joined his great-grandmother for the final ceremonies of this historic occasion.
The Queen’s team also reshared the stunning new portrait that was posted by the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge the day before their firstborn’s special day.
The person responsible for this candid photo is none other than mom Kate, who perfectly captured George enjoying the beach. In the photo we see the young royal in a simple pale blue polo shirt and a big smile on his face-a more relaxed version of the Prince compared to his more recent-suited up- appearances.
“George is turning 9!”-the caption with the photo read, accompanied with a birthday cake and a balloon emoji.
We have been getting quite a lot of Prince George as of late, with his most recent public appearance being at Wimbledon, when he joined his mother and father for a tennis match.
Prince George’s debut at the prestigious tournament was not spontaneous, as it seems that Prince William wants his son to follow in his footsteps and take his son to Wimbledon before his ninth birthday, as he would be the same age as when William himself made his Wimbledon debut alongside his late mother, Princess Diana.
Prince George’s appearance in the royal box gave us a very rare sight, as the rule is that children are not allowed in it. Unless you are a member of the royal family, children are not allowed to sit in the royal box under any circumstances.
