Vanity Fair Crowns Prince George with a Cover for His First Birthday

Prince George's Play Date
The little one enjoys a playdate in New Zealand.
On July 22, the most adorable baby in all of England — and probably the world — will turn one.

That’s right folks, it’s been nearly one year since the world welcomed little Prince George.

In honor of George Alexander Louis’ first birthday, Vanity Fair has made him a cover boy for the August 2014 issue, along with his parents Kate Middleton and Prince William.

The cover story is courtesy of VF contributor Katie Nicholl, who spoke to palace insiders about the prince’s first year. Here are some highlights:

George started out as a very hungry baby

According to Nicholl, the prince’s nanny Jessie Webb, who came out of retirement to help the Cambridges, tried to get the little prince into a routine but he had trouble sleeping through the night. The baby prince, who was still breastfeeding, was described as “permanently hungry.”

George’s other nanny has experience in “high-speed driving”

After Webb expressed concern over traveling, mama Kate looked for a second nanny to accompany the family to New Zealand and Australia. A friend recommended Spanish-born Maria Teresa Turrion Borallo, whose resume includes things like self-defense, high-speed driving and dealing with the paparazzi.

George was a pretty good sport during the New Zealand and Australia visits

A senior aide who joined the Cambridges on their trip tells Nicholl that George “didn’t really suffer from jet lag — he settled down very quickly.”

George could be a big brother sometime soon

Nicoll notes that there are “rumors” among friends of the Duke and Duchess that they will try for baby number two this summer.

The full story will be available in the digital edition of Vanity Fair’s August 2014 issue on Thursday. The magazine will hit newsstands on July 15.
