    Prince George was said to be celebrating his fifth birthday with a private family holiday on the Caribbean island of Mustique.

    The first child of Prince William and Duchess Catherine, Prince George Alexander Louis of Cambridge entered the world on July 22, 2013.

    It’s been a jam-packed five years for the charming royal, who in his short time has become a loving big brother to Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis, a fashion icon, the world’s No 1 spirit animal thanks to his huge range of sweet faces, plus he’s found a fun royal playmate in cousin Savannah Phillips.

    In 2014, Prince George travelled to Australia and New Zealand with his parents on his first official royal tour. He has since joined his mum and dad on trips to Canada, Poland and Germany.

    The early years of his childhood were spent at Cambridge’s country estate, Anmer Hall, before they moved to Kensington Palace in London full-time.

    And last year he reached another milestone as he started school in Thomas’ Battersea in London. According to his proud parents, George has developed a strong little personality.

    “George rules the roost and Charlotte isn’t far behind,” Prince William says. We also know he wants to be a police officer when he grows up, that he can speak Spanish and he’s taking after his creative mum Kate with his artistic eye.

    Wishing George the happiest of birthdays and many more years of joyful smiles!
