The little one enjoys a playdate in New Zealand.
An official picture was released of Britain’s newest royal, Prince George, ahead of his forthcoming first birthday on Tuesday, July 22.

We see George dressed in a blue shirt and striped overalls stomping his way across graveled surface and looking the spitting image of his father, Prince William.

The picture also shows George to be a confident walker an it looks like George is going to be quite the big boy.

This photo dated Wednesday July 2, 2014, was taken to mark the first birthday of Prince George and shows the Prince during a visit to the Sensational Butterflies exhibition at the Natural History Museum on July 02, 2014 in London, England.

Queen Elizabeth is expected to attend Prince George’s birthday party, while the Duke and Duchess of Cornwall are expected to be otherwise engaged.

Following the release of an official picture of Prince George to mark his first birthday, speculation has been growing about the details of his “private” birthday party.

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge be throwing the party at their Kensington Palace apartment.

A spokesman for the palace tells Us Weekly, “The family is marking it privately with close family and friends at Kensington Palace.” A source adds that it will most likely be an indoor tea party that “may extend to the garden if the weather remains glorious.”
