Writing for "William & Catherine: A Family Portrait", Gill Knappett said: "Like his father did, Prince George is enjoying as normal an upbringing as possible, with two parents determined to let him have as much privacy has possible".

The photo shows George grinning in the garden of Clarence House after the christening of his younger brother Prince Louis on July 9.

"The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are very pleased to share a new photograph of Prince George to mark his fifth birthday - thank you everyone for your lovely messages", the Palace wrote, adding a balloon emoji.
