The Woman’s Weekly Team would love to wish Prince George a very happy birthday! He turns two today, 22 July 2015. Isn’t he getting big?

We hope he has a lovely day and will be blowing out the candles on a big yummy cake. We’ve celebrated by putting together a selection of our favourite Prince George pictures. He’s so adorable. Ahhhh…

1. What a cheeky chappie

What a gorgeous family they are. We couldn’t pass by a Prince George birthday pictures compilation without this sunny family portrait by Mario Testino, or sighing another ‘ahhhhhhh’ for that matter.

12. Actually, I rather liked it here!
