Prince George strikes the cutest poses in official Christmas photos

Prince William and Kate Middleton's little prince is getting so big. On Saturday, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge released Prince George's official Christmas pictures that were taken in late November by one of their household staff.

Prince George is quite the natural posing for the camera


Posing in a courtyard of their home in London's Kensington Palace, the third-in-line to the throne showed off his chubby rosy cheeks and big smile. Following in his dad's footsteps, the tot looked quite dapper in British designer Cath Kidston's navy sweater fittingly decorated with royal guards, a white collared top by Sweden's Polarn O. Pyret, black shorts and high socks.

Something made the little prince laugh maybe his mom or dad?


On Saturday afternoon the British Monarchy's official Facebook page and the Clarence House Twitter feed posted the photos, saying: "The latest photos of Prince George for you! Our little Prince is pictured sitting on the steps of Kensington Palace."


Pictures of the soon-to-be big brother haven't been released since his 1st birthday in July, and these are also his first solo set. George accompanied his parents earlier this year to Australia and New Zealand but was left behind for their 48-hour royal visit to New York City.
