Prince George has become famous for the collection of adorable, expressive and often-silly faces he makes during his increasingly frequent public outings. The birthday boy, who turns three on July 22, has proven himself a natural in front of the camera, during which time his Windsor, Spencer and Middleton heritages often shine through.
From making funny faces like his mother, the Duchess of Cambridge, to sticking out his tongue at Trooping the Colour like his uncle, Prince Harry, George is quickly absorbing little pieces of his loved ones’ personalities.
Described as a “cheeky monkey,” by his father, Prince William, the toddler is constantly on the go, seeking out new adventures at every turn. Curious George is a spritely little boy who can’t help but steal the show wherever he goes. Just ask his sister, Princess Charlotte, who relaxed in the family’s heirloom Millson pram on her christening day while her big brother waved to the crowds and did a little dance outside St. Mary Magdalene church on the Queen’s Sandringham estate.
He appears to have inherited a pair of rosy cheeks from his late grandmother, Princess Diana, and sometimes-unruly hair courtesy of grandfather Prince Charles. Also, the prince proved he has his great-grandmother’s, determination in his genes during the family’s visit to New Zealand and Australia in 2014, when a then-nine-month-old George charged around his first play date, getting his hands on all the toys.
In the last two years, royal fans have watched in awe as George has blossomed into a beautiful future king and paused to take note of how much he has inherited from his loving family. Here, we highlight some of the young prince’s most memorable familial resemblances.
