To mark his second birthday the royal family have shared the most adorable image of Prince George to date, taken, no less, by Mario Testino

The image of a very happy looking Prince George was taken by the renowned photographer at the christening of Princess Charlotte on July 5. It was taken in the gardens at Sandringham House, as part of the series of official photographs taken by Testino for the royal family.

A Kensington Palace spokeswoman said: “This photograph captures a very happy moment on what was a special day for the Duke and Duchess [of Cambridge] and their family. They are very pleased to share this picture as they celebrate Prince George’s second birthday.”

Gorgeous George will celebrate his birthday with his sister and parents Prince William and Kate Middleton, at Anmer Hall, Norfolk, UK.

To help mark the special day we have collated our favourite images of the little prince (any excuse really for us to coo over the adorable pictures).
