LONDON, KOMPAS.com – Prince George celebrated his seventh birthday on July 22 and the British Royal Family took to Instagram to mark the event.

The young prince is third in line to the throne after his grandfather Prince Charles and father Prince William.

In the two photos released by his mother and Duchess of Cambridge, Catherine Middleton, the little prince flashed a gap-toothed smile.

The photos had been taken by Catherine earlier in July but were issued by Kensington Palace a night before Prince George’s birthday.

Sharing snapshots of the family has become a tradition for the Cambridge brood particularly to celebrate special occasions.

William and Kate’s three children are rarely seen in public and there are few photographs of them.

"The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are delighted to share two new photographs of Prince George ahead of his seventh birthday tomorrow," Kensington Palace said in a statement. It did not say where the photos were taken.

One showed George dressed in a dark green polo shirt, his hair neatly brushed, while in the other he wore a t-shirt with a camouflage pattern and his hair was tousled.

He appeared to have lost one or more of his milk teeth.

Prince George Alexander Louis of Cambridge was born in the private Lindo Wing of St Mary's Hospital in London in July 2013 and made his first public appearance a day later.

For the special event, his parents stood on the hospital steps in front of a huge crowd of photographers and camera crews.

As Britain takes its first steps out of COVID-19 lockdown, and with holiday options limited, George is expected to spend his birthday at home.

Last year, he celebrated his big day on vacation with his family on the Caribbean island of Mustique.

George is the eldest of the Cambridges' three children. Sister Charlotte is five and brother Louis is two.
