What a year it’s been! To celebrate Prince George‘s first birthday Tuesday, Prince William and Kate Middleton issued a statement to express their gratitude. “We would like to take this opportunity on George’s first birthday to thank everyone over the last year, wherever we have met them, both at home and overseas, for their warm and generous good wishes to George and our family,” the royal duo said.
In the days leading up to the mini-milestone, a trio of photographs were released showing Prince George visiting the “Sensational Butterflies” exhibition at the Natural History Museum with the 32-year-old Duke and Duchess of Cambridge. Middleton, as it happens, is Patron of the Natural History Museum.
One year ago today, Prince George was born at 4:24 p.m. at St. Mary’s Hospital in Paddington, London. He is third in line to the throne, behind his father, Prince William, and his grandfather, Prince Charles.

Three months after his birth, Prince George was christened at The Chapel Royal in St. James’ Palace by The Archbishop of Canterbury, the Most Reverend Justin Welby. In keeping with royal tradition, Prince George wore a hand-made replica of the royal christening robe, made by Angela Kelly, dressmaker to Queen Elizabeth II. The Lily Font and water from the River Jordan were also used during the baptism.
Prince George accompanied his parents on their three-week tour of New Zealand and Australia in April.

Though he’s the most famous baby in the world, the Cambridges hope to give Prince George a “normal upbringing.” According to royal watcher Katie Nicholl, “They take George to playdates at the homes of friends, among them Kate’s old Marlborough friend Alice St. John Webster, who has a baby several months older than George,” she wrote in Vanity Fair. “His parents have deliberately chosen to keep him out of the limelight,” she added. “William especially wants to protect his son from the media, which he has had to deal with from an early age. There will be occasional official photographs to mark milestones…but the rest of the time George will be left to enjoy a happy childhood away from the media glare.”
At this point, we could probably write our own book on the topic of Kate Middleton‘s pregnancy. The rumor mill has gone back and forth on the subject, with the most recent story coming from Kate’s supposed friend, Jessica Hay. The palace has refused to comment on Kate’s pregnancy, but they’ve also released several reports about how Jessica is no longer in contact with the Middletons. Are they trying to discredit her, or are they trying to send us a message? In the past, they would have just denied the rumors, but I think everybody and their mother knows that an actual pregnancy announcement isn’t that far away.
If Kate actually is pregnant, that means that their press office is just playing cat and mouse with the media. If she’s not pregnant, then they’re going out of their way to make you think that she is pregnant. Either way, it’s a win-win for them. Kate gets to be pregnant one way or another, whether it’s through media fabrication or real life. And eventually, the truth will come out.
We also know that Kate and Prince William are trying for their second baby, thanks to Vanity Fair. By tradition, Kate and Will have to provide the throne with the spare, and they have to do it soon. Since they’re already ‘trying’, then we’d have to assume that they will be successful soon, if they’re not already. Furthermore, new rumors have arisen that The Duchess of Cambridge is carrying a baby girl. Both Prince William and Princess Kate have addressed their desire to have a little sister as a second child to join Prince George.
Kate got pregnant very quickly with Prince George after her wedding, and I don’t think it’ll take them long to conceive again if that’s what they want. And soon, we’ll have another chubby cheeked royal toddler running around and trampling all over bilbies and stuffed toys.
It’s a girl! Kate Middleton’s childhood friend, Jessica Hay, revealed the news in early July that the Duchess of Cambridge was expecting. Now, a new report claims that Kate is pregnant with a little princess. How exciting!
This little princess is going to be just as beautiful as her mom, Kate Middleton, 32. That’s right, Kate and Prince William, 31, are expecting their second child — and it’s a GIRL! As HollywoodLife.com previously reported, Kate’s childhood friend, Jessica Hay, confirmed Kate’s second pregnancy back on July 14. Well, it looks like Prince George, 1, is going to have a little sister, according to a brand-new report. We are SO excited for the royal family!
Kate Middleton Pregnant With Baby Girl
This has to be the most exciting news we’ve heard all week!
Kate and William have revealed to their friends that she is expecting a baby girl, according to a report by Life Style.
“She feels different this time around, and is convinced they’re having a girl,” an insider close to the royals spilled to the mag.
The insider adds that the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are “eager to have a daughter” because of Kate’s close relationship with her sister, Pippa Middleton, 30.
The question on everyone’s mind is if Kate is, in fact, expecting a princess, will they name her after William’s late mother, Princess Diana?
“If it’s a girl, the name would have to be Diana, wouldn’t it?” Diana’s close friend, Marie Sutton, told the mag.
Aw! That would be such a touching tribute to William’s late mother. He has clearly inherited her hands-on parenting skills, so it is no wonder he wants to keep the memory of his mother alive.
Prince George Celebrates 1st Birthday With Tea Party
Prince George and his baby sister will be less than two years apart , so there’s no doubt that they will be close siblings!
The little prince celebrated his 1st birthday with a party at Kensington Palace thrown by his grandmother, Kate’s mom, Carole Middleton.
Guests at the party enjoyed “lots of finger food, oodles of fresh fruit, organic ice creams and fresh fruit sorbets,” the source told the Daily Mail.
The most adorable part? George reportedly had a Petter Rabbit birthday cake — aw! So sweet!

obvious lies. until Clarence House releases it, its all rumours and not worth reporting on.
the royals never release the gender of their babies ahead of time (if they even find out themselves) half the fun of a royal baby is the guessing game.

“We would like to take this opportunity on George’s first birthday to thank everyone over the last year, wherever we have met them, both at home and overseas, for their warm and generous good wishes to George and our family,” the royal couple said in a message accompanying their third official family portraits released to mark Prince George’s July 22 first birthday.

William and Kate have been inundated with warm wishes and gifts for their son in the last year, especially when the trio were on their royal tour in April, visiting Australia and New Zealand.
The couple chose to release stunning family shots that show the proud parents looking on as their son explores a butterfly exhibition at London’s Natural History Museum.
The intimate glimpse into their family life, and the special moment of George’s fascination with nature, were released on the eve of George’s big day.
The couple unveiled a picture of the adorable tot, dressed in a navy blue T-shirt and light blue dungarees by French children’s clothing Petit Bateau, walking at the weekend. The image was a delight to royal fans after George’s parents had already shared that the little one was on his feet.
Last week Prince William revealed that George was “charging around and opening doors” in the Cambridges’ apartment in Kensington Palace.
Press Association photographer John Stillwell, who was in charge of capturing the royals through the lens for the special snaps, said the little Prince was “quick on his feet”, “lively” and “determined”.
William and Kate, 32, are understood to be throwing a private party with family and close friends at their Kensington Palace home to mark the special occasion.

4. Prince George was baptised on Oct. 23, 2013. Kate Middleton and Prince William decided their first child to have seven godparents. The list includes cousins and friends. They are Zara Tindall (Prince William’s Cousin), Emilia Jardine-Paterson (Duchess’ friend), Van Cutsem (Prince William’s Childhood friend), Jamie Lowther-Pinkerton (Private Secretary to the couple), Julia Samuel (Close Friend of Prince William’s mother, Princess Diana), Earl Grosvenor (Son of the Duke of Westminster) and Oliver Baker (Kate Middleton and Prince William’s friend from St. Andrews University).
5. Prince George has already accomplished few milestones. Kate Middleton and Prince William’s son is walking unassisted ahead of his first birthday. Duke and Duchess shared an official photo of Prince George that shows the toddler walking on his own in light blue dungaree and navy t-shirt designed by Petit Bateau. Moreover, much before celebrating his first birthday, Prince George has undertaken an international royal tour. The little one accompanied his parents to New Zealand and Australia in April, 2014 when he was just nine months old.
