It was Prince George’s sixth birthday yesterday and the internet flooded with pictures and love. Meghan Markle and Prince Harry joined the celebration with a wholesome birthday wish to Prince George.
The Duke and Duchess of Sussex commented on a picture posted by the @kensingtonroyal Instagram page from their joint account to wish their nephew a great day.
The @sussexroyal page wrote: “Happy Birthday! Wishing you a very special day and lots of love!” The Duke and Duchess of Sussex commented similar wishes for Princess Charlotte, Prince Louis, and Prince William’s birthdays.
But of course Meghan and Prince Harry’s sweet comment managed to spark controversy. Some people are unhappy because Prince George’s aunt and uncle wrote “happy birthday.” You read that correctly.
The controversy started as the future king was not referred to with his “official title.” Although it would have been excessive for the aunt and uncle to call their nephew “HRH Prince George” in a brief birthday message.
Despite the internet controversy, we still love to see the pictures and love for Prince George flooding the internet.
To celebrate Prince George’s big day, the Cambridge family posted three adorable new pictures of the future king taken by Kate Middleton. The pictures and birthday captions were posted by the @kensingtonroyal account. Additionally, the official Royal Family account and Clarence House social media pages shared the images.
Prince George is sporting a jersey for the official England National Soccer Team in two of these pictures. The team’s Instagram page even joined in on the love, commenting: “Happy birthday, Prince George! Great choice of shirt” on one of the posts.
Two of these cute images were captured at the Cambridge’s home of Kensington Palace, and one was from a family holiday. Currently, Prince George is celebrating his birthday on the private Caribbean island Mustique.
For being only six-years-old, life is looking pretty good for Prince George. We can’t wait to see all the amazing things he accomplishes as he continues to grow up. Time is flying.
