LONDON (AFP): Britain’s Prince George was to celebrate his first birthday on Tuesday with a party fit for a future king as his parents thanked well-wishers the world over for their support. Prince William and his wife Catherine were to throw a private bash at their Kensington Palace home in London to mark the occasion, with royalty and close friends in attendance. To mark the prince’s birthday they released two new photographs of the family, which show toddler George fascinated by butterflies at the Natural History Museum in the British capital.
