Prince George, the future King, has officially turned 10 today, therefore TSZ NEWZ is taking a look down memory lane of the young royal’s life through pictures.
The second in line to the throne was born on the Lindo Wing of St Mary’s Hospital in London on July 22, 2013, at 4.24 pm.
As people rejoiced, the Prince and Princess of Wales ventured onto the steps outside the hospital to reveal Prince George to the world. Prince William joked that he had “got a pair of lungs on him,” but fortunately he had “his mother’s looks” and “more hair” than him.
His name, George Alexander Louis, was not publicized until two days after his birth, with his first name honoring his great-great-grandfather, King George VI.
The first official portrait of the family of three was released just a month after his birth. Kate’s father, Michael, took the photo, which showed his ecstatic new parents and their dog Lupo.
George was christened later that year at St James’s Palace in London, where he was baptized by the Archbishop of Canterbury.
Only 22 members of the Royal Family were present, as William and Kate defied tradition by having their son baptized at the Chapel Royal, where Princess Diana lay before her death.
George went on his first official journey with his parents in 2014, accompanying them on a three-week tour of Australia and New Zealand.
George took on a new role the next year: he became a big brother. Princess Charlotte was born in 2016, and it wasn’t long before he became a big brother for the second time when Prince Louis was born in 2018.
The Prince took another huge step the year before: he entered school. When the future King arrived at Thomas’s Battersea School in London, he was escorted by his father.
Although William and Kate aim to give George and his siblings as normal an upbringing as possible, the royal family has experienced some once-in-a-lifetime events.
The little Prince was introduced to then-President Barack Obama and his wife Michelle when he was two years old, clad in a lovely white dressing gown and gingham pajamas.
The American President and First Lady are not the only foreign leaders who have met the young Prince. George met Canada’s Prime Minister Justin Trudeau in 2016, who got down on one knee to speak with the future King.
At the age of seven, George met famed documentary director Sir David Attenborough, who gave him a tooth from a big shark he discovered on a family vacation to Malta in the late 1960s.
George is believed to be quite sporty, something William and Kate are thought to have encouraged, and this came in handy last year when he played tennis with Roger Federer, a sport he learned at the age of five.
Last year, William and Kate decided to relocate George and his siblings from Kensington Palace in London to Adelaide Cottage on the Windsor Estate.
The three kids now attend Lambrook School, where George, who is a “very protective” big brother, no doubt stands up for Charlotte and Louis on the playground.
“He’s very protective of his younger siblings and goes out of his way to help his mother with the household chores, especially when it earns him extra time on electronics!” a source told us.
George has spent an increasing amount of time in the spotlight in recent years. His parents took him to Wembley Stadium to witness the Euro final in 2021 when he was seven years old.
He went to see the men’s singles final at Wimbledon last week, but this time his younger sister Charlotte joined him.
The future Monarch, who will soon enter his final year of primary school, has had quite a year, having played a more prominent role at his grandfather’s Coronation.
Although Pages of Honor are generally between the ages of 12 and 15, George was awarded the duty, which included walking behind the King and helping carry the long, heavy robes, because he had exhibited a great lot of interest in the ritual.
