Prince George’s 22 Cutest Moments of All Time

There comes a day in every kid’s life when it’s time to say goodbye to child’s play and hello to more serious endeavors, like preparing to be king. For Prince George (Kate Middleton and Prince William’s first-born nugget), that day is today, July 22—the day he turns ten. From meeting President Obama (in a chic bathrobe) to getting pushed down a grassy knoll (thanks a lot, Savannah Phillips), here are 22 of Prince George’s cutest moments.

Prince William and Son Prince George Looked Like a Dynamic Duo During Their Most Recent Outing

1. When He Graced Us with His Royal Presence for the First Time

On July 22, 2013, our lives were forever changed when new parents Kate Middleton and Prince William introduced their beautiful baby boy, Prince of Cambridge George Alexander Louis, and his cherubic face to the world.

2. And Embarked on His Inaugural Royal Tour

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge tried to keep their son out of the public eye as much as possible during his first year of princedom. However, in 2014 the royal family decided it was high time the little prince stepped into the spotlight. They brought George and his pudgy forearms along on a three-week tour of Australia and New Zealand.

3. When He Experienced the Bliss of Rolling Down a Grassy Hill

At the Gigaset Charity Polo Match in 2015, Prince George demonstrated that he, just like any other toddler, had seemingly endless reserves of energy. The 2-year-old (at the time) was spotted frolicking through the grass, sliding down hills and running away from his mummy.

4. And Greeted Foreign Dignitaries in His Loungewear

When former U.S. President Barack Obama paid a visit to Kensington Palace in 2016, Prince George didn’t miss a beat and addressed the commander in chief with a firm handshake…despite his casual attire.

5. When He Made Faces at the Crowd

Just because George didn’t get an invite to the Trooping the Colour ceremony in 2015 doesn’t mean he wasn’t the star of the show. While his parents tended to their royal duties, Prince George had a party of his own with his nanny, Maria Teresa Turrion, and showed off one of his many hidden talents—silly faces.

6. And Squished His Head Against the Plane Window

Is there anything more adorable than a pouty Prince George? We think not.

7. When He Kept Close Watch Over His Baby Sister

Some big brothers can be skeptical about a sibling infringing on their territory—not Prince George. The prince took his role as big bro very seriously and even kept tabs on her whereabouts during her christening. Those protective instincts will come in mighty handy in her teenage years.

8. And Posed Like a Natural for His First Day of School

When Prince George started nursery school in 2016, his mom snapped this glamour shot to document the moment. Although he has since graduated to Thomas's Battersea in London, this navy blue puffer coat will always have a special place in our heart.

9. When He Slipped Into Something a Little More Formal

George did not take his pageboy duties for Auntie Pippa’s wedding lightly. Princess Charlotte may have stolen the show as a bridesmaid, but the Prince sucked up his pride and rocked the requisite Peter Pan–collared shirt, khaki knickerbockers and white tights like a pro.

10. And Gave the People What They Wanted: A Royal Wave

Prince George gave his fans a proper farewell as the royal family departed Pippa’s gorgeous wedding. Clearly, this little ham has the whole royal thing on lock.

11. When He Sent a Handwritten Note to Santa

Just because he’s the future King of England doesn’t mean he can’t make a few requests to the big guy in red. (Hey, if the kid wants a police car, he wants a police car.)

12. And Got Pushed Down a Grassy Hill by a Mini-Monarch

At the Maserati Charity Polo Trophy in June 2018, Savannah Phillips channeled her inner Cersei and pushed her cousin, Prince George, down a hill, which—lucky for us—was captured on video. Savage.

13. When He Showed Off a Missing Tooth for His 6th Birthday

His mom's photography skills were seriously on point for George's official birthday portraits in honor of his sixth birthday on July 22, 2019. The prince and third in line to the throne sported a National England soccer team jersey as he played in the grass at his home of Kensington Palace just a couple weeks after England's women's team, the Lionesses, were knocked out of the World Cup.

14. And When He Looked Casual in Camo for His 7th Birthday Portraits

In 2020, Kensington Palace released two new photos of the young royal that were (not surprisingly) taken by Kate Middleton. In the first snap, PG looks super casual in a camouflage t-shirt while the second photograph features a preppier prince as he rocks an olive polo. They grow up so fast.

15. When He Cheered On England

Prince George showed support for his country during the Euro Finals at Wembley Stadium in London. He attended the football (soccer, to us Americans) match alongside his parents, who were seen comforting the young royal when England lost to Italy.

16. When He Led by Example

During the carriage procession at this year’s Trooping the Colour, both Prince Louis and Princess Charlotte could be seen following their big brother’s lead as they waved to the crowd. Way to set a great example, Prince George.

17. When Prince George Totally Freaked Out Over the Flypast

While Prince Louis opted to cover his ears, Prince George stood in awe as he observed the Platinum Jubilee flypast from Buckingham Palace. TBH, we’d probably do the same.

18. And When He Gushed Over the Queen

Prince George shared a few sweet moments with his great-grandmother as the family stood together on the Buckingham Palace balcony. We still can’t get over how much the 8-year-old admires Her Majesty.

19. When He Donned His Biggest Smile on the Palace Balcony

The young royal showcased his pearly whites as he stood by his father on the balcony—and he looked so much like Prince William.

20. And When He Paid Tribute to Prince Philip

The royal family released a never-before-seen portrait of Prince George in honor of his eighth birthday. In the pic, George is sitting on the hood of a Land Rover Defender, which is a subtle tribute to his late great-grandfather, Prince Philip, who regularly drove off-roading vehicles.

21. When He Made History

For the coronation of his grandfather, King Charles III, young Prince George made history when he served as a Page of Honour. At only 9 years old, the prince became the youngest future king to ever have a role in the ceremony. Wow.

22. And When He Reached Double Digits

On his 10th birthday, Buckingham Palace released a portrait of Prince George, where he appeared so grown up. In the photo, taken by Millie Pilkington, the prince has never looked more ready for his future as king.
