Prince George, the oldest child of Prince William and Kate, Duchess of Cambridge, celebrated his seventh birthday on July 22. The young Prince, whose full name is George Alexander Louis of Cambridge, was born in the private Lindo Wing of St Mary’s Hospital, Paddington, at 4.24pm on July 22, 2013. The Duchess of Cambridge celebrated her son’s birthday by sharing a newly-taken photograph of the young royal.

Photos of the Cambridge photos on their birthdays seem to have become somewhat of a tradition for the family-of-three.

The photographs are a unique opportunity to catch an intimate glimpse into the Cambridges’ lives and see how their children are getting on.

This year’s photo of Prince George, however, was also an opportunity for him to pay tribute to his father, Prince William.

The Royal Family has long sent subtle messages, seen in the many nods to Queen Elizabeth II throughout Princess Beatrice’s wedding to Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi.

Businesswoman Elizabeth Holmes explained on Instagram that she had “so many thoughts” about the choice of attire.

She said: “The Queen is the head of the armed forces and served for a brief stint during World War II in the women’s branch of the British Army.
