Prince George in nod to great-grandad Philip in new picture for his eighth birthday
The Mirror says: The future king, who turns eight today, was snapped by proud mum Kate Middleton during a family break to Norfolk – she has become an accomplished photographer.
Prince George beams as he cheekily sits on top of his parents’ Land Rover Defender in a photo released for his eighth birthday today.
Including the famous vehicle in the image will be seen as a poignant tribute to the late duke of Edinburgh, who had a passion for engineering.
Philip, who died in April a few months short of his 100th birthday, regularly drove Land Rovers and during his funeral the duke’s coffin was carried by a specially adapted defender which he helped design.
The future king, casually dressed in a polo-style striped top and shorts, was snapped by proud mum Kate during a family break to Norfolk earlier this month.
The Duchess of Cambridge has become an accomplished photographer and in recent years has released her own pictures to celebrate her children’s birthdays.
