Prince George is preparing to be eight years old.
The young royal will celebrate this milestone on Thursday and his parents, Kate Middleton and Prince William, marked the occasion in their traditional way: by sharing a brand new photo of their son.
In the photo, George is beaming while wearing a blue and orange striped collar shirt and blue shorts. He appeared to be sitting on the hood of a car for the shot.
“I’ll have eight (!) Tomorrow,” read photo caption alongside a pair of celebratory emojis.

Many fans of the royal family took advantage of the comments to wish the young prince the best of luck, as well as to remember his birth.
“I remember when he was born !!! My sister and I were so excited !!!” a follower wrote. “I can’t believe he’s already that old ?! Maybe he’ll have another little sister? We can only hope !!!”
