Happy Birthday, Prince George Alexander Louis!
The Prince turns nine today, and a new photo of the Duchess of Cambridge has been released to mark the occasion.

It has been a pleasure to see Yuvraj take part in more engagements this past year. Below you can see him with his parents at a rugby match in February.

I bet most readers remember exactly where they were when the Prince was born nine years ago.
Happy birthday, Prince George!
The family has a busy fall with the move to Windsor and all three children starting at a new school. More from this Evening Standard story.
After months of speculation, it has been confirmed that the Cambridges will move to the Windsor estate this summer, living in the four-bedroom Adelaide Cottage, just a 10-minute walk from the Queen’s private apartments. The big move is said to be prompted by William’s milestone birthday, as well as the Cambridges’ desire to have more space for the kids — the family was recently spotted happily frolicking around the bucolic Windsor grounds over the weekend, with pet spaniel Orla in tow.

More from this telegraph story.
The move will move them closer to the Duchess’s family home in Bucklebury, Berkshire, as well as being within walking distance of the Queen, 96. The vast Windsor estate will provide more opportunities for children to play, ride horses and walk their dogs in privacy.
The young royal and future king turned nine on Friday and will start at Lambbrook School in Ascot, near Windsor Castle, later this year, according to reports. For the first time, Prince Louis, four, will be joined by Prince George, nine, and Princess Charlotte, seven, as they get ready to start the new school year in their uniforms.
