Let’s be honest. Life really began three years ago today when Prince George was born. Today, in honour of the little nugget’s third birthday, Kensington Palace has released FOUR new photos of the royal heir. 

While we’re a little disappointed Charlotte didn’t show up in a single image (DRAMA), we totally melted when Lupo made a guest appearance.

The images were shot by photographer Matt Porteous at the family’s Norfolk home this month. Behold them below in all their glory.
