Prince George

In response to a number of requests we have decided to create a page dedicated to His Royal Highness Prince George of Cambridge. It will include the latest photos, with details on his apparel and other items, including strollers and reported purchases for the Prince. I will be writing this in reverse chronological order to ensure the latest details appear at the top of the page.

Prince George's first birthday portraits were taken at the Natural History Museum's 'Sensational Butterflies' exhibition.

The venue was chosen because his mother is patron of the museum. They were taken by Press Association photographer John Stillwell, who also took official photographs of Prince Harry in Afghanistan. Speaking about George Mr. Stillwell described him as "very lively and very sure of himself and confident - a very determined young boy. I'd have to say he looks like his dad".


A beautiful shot of the family.


George looked very cute in a navy polo shirt and blue and white stripe overalls by Petit Bateau with reverse straps (with thanks to Prince George Pieces). It appears George wore the brands Short-Sleeved Cotton Bodysuit underneath his overalls. The little Prince also wore his Early Days 'Alex' Pre-Walker Shoes.


George attended his first polo match on 15 June, Father's Day. The boisterous ten-month-old joined Kate to support William and Harry at a charity game. The little prince had a wonderful team exploring the grounds and playing with a mallet.


George looked adorable in his red stripe Neck and Neck overall, a white shirt and his Early Days pre-walker shoes.


Prince George looked adorable in a red cardigan, white and pink stripe dungarees and his Early Days Pre-Walkers as he joined his parents to depart Australia. The little prince let out a cry as they boarded the plane. Perhaps he wanted to stay :)


George's overalls are by Neck and Neck (with thanks to What Prince George Wore). The brand has a store at Duke of York Square and it's quite likely Kate purchased it there. It's available for $51.

Prince George joined his parents at Taronga Zoo in Sydney to view the bilby enclosure named after him. The little prince was very excited.


George looked adorable in the Rachel Riley Striped Jersey Polo and the navy Pocket Shorts. They're available for $69 and $89 respectively. The prince also wore his Early Days Alex Shoes (with thanks to HRH George Pieces). It was an incredibly cute look for George.


For his arrival in Canberra, Prince George wore the Rachel Riley Moss Stitch Cardigan. The $89 dark sky blue cardigan is 100% cotton with pockets.

Prince George looked very cute in a white romper with sailing boats by Les Petites Abeilles for the royals arrival in Sydney. The hand smocked and embroidered design retails for £60.


A very sleepy Prince George departed Wellington, New Zealand with his parents on April 16 looking adorable in his Rachel Riley Dungarees, Trotters Onesie, Early Days Pre-Walkers Shoes and an ivory cardigan.


Prince George attended his first official engagement on April 9 2014 - a playdate at Government House for families who avail of the services of Plunket. The event will be something to look back on in years to come - the first of countless engagements George will undertake.

The little prince looked darling in the Rachel Riley Sailboat Smocked Dungarees. The navy and ivory cotton dungarees retail for $129 and feature an elasticated waist and adjustable straps which cross over at the back (Oh, the cuteness factor!). Prince George Pieces shared news George also wore the £15 Trotters Milo Body and a pair of £25.99 Early Days Pre-Walkers.


Prince George looked adorable upon arrival at Military Terminal, Wellington, New Zealand for the beginning of the royal tour. The eight-month-old was dressed in a cream jumper and shorts. Those cheeks!


It was confirmed George wore the Early Days Ivory Pre-Walker Shoes. The £27 soft leather shoes feature a flexible sole and a comfortable lightly padded insole. They're available in sizes ranging from 0-18 months.


Before making their way to Wellington for the start of the royal tour, the Cambridges touched down at Sydney where we saw little George kicking and waving in his mother's arms. The little Prince wore a navy onesie and Prince William carried a kangaroo backpack for him. It's from the Save The Koalas Shop. The backpack is described as "perfect for 2-5 year olds, soft and cuddly, comes with its own little joey stitched on so he doesn't get lost". It retails for $12.50.

Just days before the royal tour of New Zealand and Australia Kate stocked up on a number of casual items for Prince George. Her Royal Highness's purchases included the £14.95 Contrast-Trim Striped Footed One-Piece, the very cute £14.95 lush green Plaid Button-Up Bodysuit and the £6.27 grey and navy Stripe Pants. All very practical and wearable pieces for the little prince.

To mark Mothering Sunday, March 30 2014, the Palace released a new portrait of The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, Prince George and Lupo. The informal family portrait was taken at a window in the family's home, Apartment 1A, Kensington Palace by award winning photographer Jason Bell. Eight-month-old George looked adorable in a baby blue cashmere jumper with his name embroidered on it. It was created by Royal Warrant holders Corgi Hoisery. The Carmarthenshire-based company gave it as a gift to Prince Charles to celebrate the birth of his first grandson, who then passed it on to William and Kate.



Prince George and Kate joined the Middleton family for their annual holiday in Mustique in February.

Hello! Magazine

Kate is regularly spotted with Prince George in Kensington Gardens. Which stroller does one choose for a prince? A royal favourite of course. George's stroller is by Silver Cross. Considered the 'world's most exclusive pram' according to the Daily Mail, a Silver Cross has carried The Queen, her children, grandchildren and now her great-grandchild. In fact the Cambridges are such fans of the pram they had it flown up to Scotland during their stay in Balmoral.

The carriages were first created in 1877 by William Wilson and became hugely popular in the 1960s. William's mother Diana spent her early days in the luxury buggy.

Let's take a closer look at George's stroller, the Silver Cross Sleepover Elegance Body in black. No doubt the brand will become even more popular following the royal sighting. The £650 pram is available at John Lewis, a department store we know Kate frequents regularly.

Below we see the stroller in black and cream. It is available at John Lewis.

It is described this way:

'The Silver Cross Sleepover Elegance Body combines contemporary design with the elegance of the Silver Cross Heritage Range, for the ultimate in baby comfort and style. With a super-snug pram liner and breathable mattress, the lie flat carrycot, that's suitable from birth is finished with the elegant design details associated with Silver Cross.'

A terrific choice!

In December 2013, the Duchess purchased a couple of items fit for a king at the Chelsea branch of London chain Trotters. Kate picked up the aptly named 'George' jumper with a Union Jack on it.

Trotters

The £34.99 piece is billed as great for "afternoon tea with the Queen":

'Rule, Britannia! The majestic George sweater proudly boasts the Union Jack flag across its centre front as a patriotic statement of Brit cool. Wear with a smart Oxford shirt and preppy chinos for afternoon tea with the Queen.'

Kate reportedly also picked up the £19.99 Guard T-Shirt which is described as the perfect garment for the little boy who dreams of one day becoming a soldier boy. In relaxed marl grey tone, the top features three soldiers with the slogan 'left, right, stop'.

Prince George wore the 'George' jumper for a private press reception at Kensington Palace in March 2013. Apparently he was very well behaved and dribbled quite a bit. Kate also revealed he has "Middleton eyes".

The Christening of Prince George took place on 23 October 2013 at The Chapel Royal, St James's Palace. Twenty-two guests were invited including George's godparents, Jamie Lowther-Pinkerton, Emilia Jardine-Paterson, Oliver Baker, Zara Tindall, Julia Samuel, Hugh Grosvenor and William van Cutsem.

Prince George wore a hand-made replica of the royal christening robe, made by Angela Kelly, dressmaker to The Queen. The original Honiton lace and satin robe, which is now 172 years old, was last used in 2004 with Lady Louise Windsor being the last royal baby to wear the piece. After years of wear it had become too fragile to use, so in 2008 The Queen commissioned a replica. It features the same length skirt, elaborate collars and bow as its predecessor. The first baby to wear it was was James, Viscount Severn, son of The Earl and Countess of Wessex.


The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge released two informal family photographs taken by Michael Middleton as the first official photos of Prince George. The relaxed shots show William and Kate with their son and much-loved dog Lupo in the garden of the Middleton family home in Bucklebury, Berkshire.

Once again Prince George wore his G.H. Hurt and Son Merino Wool Shawl.

His Royal Highness Prince George Alexander Louis of Cambridge was born at 4.24 p.m. on 22 July 2013 weighing 8 pounds 6 ounces at The Lindo Wing, St Mary's Hospital, Paddington. Our posts on George's arrival can be found HEREHERE and HERE.



The Prince's first swaddle was the Jungle Jam Print by Australian brand Aden + Anais. The 100% cotton swaddles comes in a four pack for £50 and can also be used as a burp cloth, nursing and strolling cover. George's gorgeous shawl is the £45 Super-Fine Wool Merino Christening Shawl by G.H. Hurt & Son. The company made two dozen shawls for the birth of Prince Charles.

  6. Well done, I'm sitting in front of my laptop and enjoy every sentence of your post.
    In the video of the arrival of the three you can see, that Prince George is wearing a jumper with The Queen's Guard on it. Any ideas about the ID? Thanks, Christina

  7. I think he is gorgeous little boy and particularly like the photo on him on his mums shoulder with a smile on his little face.

  8. He is quite the photogenic baby. He already steals the spotlight and it's nice to see that he's included for the experience and not just the photo op. He was clearly playing with the other children at the play date and looked to be enjoying himself. I love that in their family portraits (taken by Mr. Middleton and Jason Bell) they have included Lupo, and from the looks of the latest photo, Prince George and Lupo are well on their way to being best friends.

  9. Prince George is adorable, his serious expression reminds me of the Queen when she is not Amused by a situation
    or an individual.

  10. Who makes the white sweater he wore off the plane in NZ?! In some shots (a very precious few) you can see the edges of what looks like one of the Queen's guards. Trying to find it for a nephew...

  14. My heart really does choke with love,and emotion for Prince George, grandson of Princess Diana. Cheeky, lovable, cute, and look Prince-Harry rascally in a good way.

    It is undoubtedly the Diana angle that bring's out the emotions in me too. He probably could have been born grumpy, and still exude such adoring qualities. How wonderful it would have been to see His future Royal 'Handsomeness' in Diana's arm.

    Recently, it was good to see Prince William regally flanking Her Majesty the Queen on one side, and his dad on the other... at the 'Order of The Garter, at Windsor Castle.
    When it come's to looks, Prince George is in good company, on Diana/father's side.

  15. Happy First Birthday Prince George from across the pond (San Jose, CA).

  16. She just had a baby and a few hours later she had to be looking good, wearing makeup, nice dress and smiling no matter what and show off her new baby to the whole world. what a discipline she has to have. And the little baby George already 10 month old had to go for a long trip. Which parents would take their baby oversees and stay there for two weeks, going from place to place, engagement to engagement, everyday in a different city. Very exhausting. what was is it two weeks, going from place to place, flying an airplane for 14 hours straight. He is a strong baby like his parents. Such a trip, engagement like went they went to New Zealand, Australia had to be exhausting for everybody.
