Here’s How The Royal Family Celebrated Prince George’s Birthday

In honor of Prince George of Cambridge’s birthday, Prince William and Catherine Middleton posted an updated photo on Twitter. Posing on the beach, the prince shows off a dazzling smile. “The photograph was taken while on holiday in the UK earlier this month by the duchess,” a Kensington Palace spokesman told The Telegraph.

To celebrate George’s special day, the Irish Guards Band played “Happy Birthday” in front of Buckingham Palace while onlookers watched the Changing of the Guards, per Twitter. Prince Charles and Camilla Parker Bowles retweeted George’s photo along with the message, “Happy 9th Birthday to Prince George!” and a cupcake emoji.

Besides photographs, the Duchess of Cambridge has another tradition for her children’s’ birthdays: homemade cake. “I love making the cake,” she told Mary Berry in 2019 on “A Berry Royal Christmas” (via Woman & Home). “It’s become a bit of a tradition that I stay up ’til midnight with ridiculous amounts of cake mix and icing and I make far too much. But I love it.”

While it’s not known what presents the young royal will receive this year, George’s godmother Julia Samuel has enjoyed continuing the late Princess Diana’s gift-giving tradition. “I do to George what [Diana] did to us, which is give impossible toys that are really noisy and take a lot of making,” she said, per Cornwall Live. “He’s funny and feisty and cheeky and God she [Diana] would have loved him so much.”
