Born on 22nd July 2013, the baby Prince is one of the most celebrated royal birth’s in the last century. Now, for his first birthday, many are discussing what the Royal Prince will receive and what kind of birthday bash William and Kate will throw.
A year in the life of the Royal baby
This year Prince George will be celebrating his first birthday.Growing up fast, many babies of his age have only mastered the art of babbling and mashing food into their clothes. Prince George however has flown to Australia and New Zealand, attended the Polo and sits as third in line for the thrown – not bad for a 1yr old.
To celebrate his first birthday the Royal Mint have commemorated a limited edition £5 coin as a ‘gift from the nation’; the first ever time the UK has struck a coin to mark a royal first birthday. To top it all off, William and Kate are expected to host a tea party with lots of cake in the grounds of Kensington palace.

According the Royal biographer Marcia Moody, the Prince George’s party is expected to be a low-key affair. “I’m sure he’ll receive some traditional luxury children’s items – a rocking horse or a silver tooth fairy box” Marcia said, “But William and Kate would favour personal items like a scrapbook of his first year, with hospital tags and a lock of hair.”
