It seems like just yesterday that George made his debut in their first official family photo, and since then, this boisterous tot has been a scene-stealer. Whether he’s cuddling with mom Kate Middleton, crawling onto the field during a polo match, or waving from the balcony of Buckingham Palace, all eyes are always on this adorable 3-year-old and his perfectly chubby cheeks. Who could forget when the young royal met the Obamas in his PJs on their official visit to Buckingham Palace?
A lot has happened for the third in line to the British throne since his last birthday: From his first family ski trip to his first royal engagement (a trip to check out the helicopters at the Royal International Air Tattoo), this cherubic toddler has proven that his popularity knows no bounds—and we’ll happily follow along for the ride.
In honor of his third birthday, check out the cutest photos of the 3-year-old royal through the years.
