It appears that Queen Elizabeth’s mantra when it comes to her great-grandchildren is, “Go big or go home.”
Today, in celebration of Prince George’s ninth birthday, the royal family posted a video on their official Instagram account. “Happy Birthday, Prince George!” proclaimed the caption. The Band of the Irish Guards played “Happy Birthday” for HRH Prince George this morning in front of Buckingham Palace, much to the delight of the crowd there to watch the Changing of the Guards.
Happy 9th Birthday Prince George!’
The young royal calls the Queen “Gan Gan,” and the Queen, who is 96, tweeted a picture of the two of them standing on the balcony at Buckingham Palace after the Platinum Pageant on The Mall last month.
It was followed by a message from Prince Charles, 73, and the Duchess of Cornwall, 75, who posted an ice cream emoji and wished Prince George a happy ninth birthday.
The photograph depicted the young king smiling for the camera while standing on a beach in a light blue collared shirt. The shot was purportedly taken by Middleton, an amateur photographer in her leisure time. She photographed Camilla Parker Bowles as well.
His aunt and uncle, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have not yet shared a public birthday message with the young royal.
The fact that Prince George got this surprise courtesy of his Gan-Gan (AKA the queen) must have been a very joyful time for him. In fact, if there had been one person who possibly appreciated the concert more, it would undoubtedly have been the prince’s brother, Prince Louis.
Prince George calls his great-grandmother Queen Elizabeth ‘Gan-Gan’
Even though George is just two and a half, he calls her “Gan-Gan.” “She usually puts a small gift or anything in their room when we visit, which merely demonstrates her devotion to her family.”
Kate, the future queen of the United Kingdom, also discussed Her Majesty’s modest support for her. She has been very kind by not pushing her ideas on me, but I feel like she has been there for me and given me gentle advice.
