Prince George is one

prince georgePrince George turned one Tuesday and his parents thanked everyone for their warm wishes.

To mark his first birthday, two new photographs were issued by Kensington Palace. The pictures show the enchanted young family in the midst of the ‘Sensational Butterflies’ exhibition at the Natural History Museum in London, as several dozen live butterflies hover in the distance.

In the picture, George can be seen pointing and gazing intently at a butterfly which landed on his father’s hand as his mother cuddles her young son proudly – keeping a firm grip around his waist just in case the inquisitive youngster should make a grab for it.

“We would like to take this opportunity on George’s first birthday to thank everyone over the last year, wherever we have met them, both at home and overseas, for their warm and generous good wishes to George and our family,” said The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge in a joint statement.
