Prince Louis has been getting most of the attention lately, what with his christening and the usual round of celebrations surrounding that.

"Their son, after all, will one day be Head of State".

Prince George Alexander Louis of Cambridge was born at the private maternity wing of St Mary's Hospital, Paddington, the Lindo Wing, at 4.24pm on July 22, 2013, weighing 8lbs 6oz.

An official photo of Prince George was released Saturday to mark his fifth birthday, which falls on Sunday.

The birthday portrait had been taken by photographer Matt Porteous just after Prince Louis' christening earlier in the month.

Plus, he's undeniably cute and sometimes adorably naughty, as his public appearances attest to. To celebrate the special occasion, Kate Middleton and Prince William have flown to the handsome serene beaches of Mustique.

George even got his own commemorative coin for the big day.

The young prince was seen playing up with seven-year-old Savannah, the daughter of Peter and Autumn Phillips, who jokingly put her hand over his mouth.

Baby royals and baby critters - put them together and you can't go wrong.

Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge holds Prince George of Cambridge as Prince William, Duke of Cambridge looks on whilst meeting a Bilby called George at Taronga Zoo on April 20, 2014 in Sydney, Australia.

The two older siblings have a special bond and accompanied their parents to Canada, Poland and Germany in 2017.
