Prince George Alexander Louis’ adorable mug graces the cover of the newest issue of “People” magazine as the magazine takes an in-depth look at the prince’s first year. From the magazine:
As Prince George approaches his first birthday on Tuesday, the future heir to the British throne is growing into a spirited toddler whose every milestone is met with pride by his mom and dad, Princess Kate and Prince William.
“As for any new parent, it’s exciting and a joy to be a part of,” a palace source tells PEOPLE in this week’s cover story. “It’s a wonderful thing going through your baby’s first year.”
For the heir to the British throne (behind his dad and grandfather, Prince Charles), it has been a year filled with adventure (the royal tour Down Under), sweet moments (singing “Row, Row, Row Your Boat” with Mom) and sleepless nights (for which William recently shared his coping strategy).
And like many parents of a nearly 1-year-old, William and Kate, both 32, have begun planning for baby no. 2.
There have been new rumors that have popped up about Kate Middleton expecting their second child. Of course, there has been no official confirmation from the Palace on a baby brother or sister for the cute prince, but they could be waiting out her first three months as they’ve wanted to do when she was pregnant with George.
Happy birthday Prince George — and here’s to many more!
