LONDON (AFP): Britain’s Prince George celebrates his first birthday, capping a year in which the globetrotting infant became the trend-setting face of the modern royal family. The young prince will mark the occasion with a low-key party at the family home at Kensington Palace, in keeping with the wishes of his parents William and Kate to keep their first-born out of the media glare. The royals released a new photograph of George on Saturday showing how much he has grown.
Taken a few weeks ago during a visit to London’s Natural History Museum, the picture shows the prince walking confidently with his arms outstretched.
