3 Times Prince George Stole The Royal Spotlight This Weekend

Prince George of Cambridge, you are adorable.

Prince George, what a cutie you are. It was supposed to be the Queen’s big day, but the little Prince managed to completely steal the limelight from his grandmother – not to mention his parents, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, over the weekend.

The young Royal’s charm offensive began at the annual Trooping of the Colour to mark the Queen’s birthday and ended with an appearance at a charity polo match the next day. Below, we look at Prince George’s top three cute moments (click through the gallery above to see all the adorable photos):

1. A room with a view.

Prince George couldn’t contain his excitement as he watched his family take part in the Trooping of the Colour ceremony from an upstairs window inside Buckingham Palace on Saturday. The two-year-old clapped, smiled and poked out his tongue in the arms of his nanny, Maria Teresa Turrion Borrallo, as he watched over 1,000 soldiers take part in the spectacle. Prince Charles, Prince William, Prince Harry, Princess Anne, the Duchess of Cambridge, the Duchess of Cornwall, as well as Princesses Beatrice and Eugenie all took part in the Birthday Parade, but it was gorgeous George we all wanted a glimpse of.

2. First balcony appearance? #NailedIt

George handled his first Buckingham Palace balcony appearance like a total pro. In the arms of Prince William, the 23-month-old waved at the assembled crowds below, looked suitably impressed by the RAF flypast, and there wasn’t a toddler tantrum in sight. BBC royal correspondent Nicholas Witchell said during his commentary: ‘He seemed really quite interested. He was pointing and waving,’ before adding: ‘You wonder whether this isn’t the moment when he starts to figure out that there’s something a little bit unusual about his family.’

3. Polo pro.

After all the excitement of the Trooping of the Colour, it was time for little George to let off some steam as he watched his dad, Prince William, and Uncle Prince Harry take part in the Gigaset Charity Polo Match at the Beaufort Polo Club on Sunday. The tot kept Kate, who was making her first public appearances since giving birth to Princess Charlotte, entertained with his dance moves, football skills and general fabulousness.
