Yesterday (today in Australia) we celebrated the fourth birthday of Prince George Alexander Louis, born on the 22nd of July 2013 at St Mary’s Hospital in London.
Once again we’ve been spoilt with a new official portrait of Prince George, released by The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge themselves, to mark His Royal Highness’s fourth birthday.
Kensington Palace tweeted “The Duke and Duchess are delighted to share a new official portrait of Prince George to mark His Royal Highness’s 4th birthday tomorrow.”
Looking more grown up and beaming at the camera, Prince George looks charming in this special photograph. His parents were “delighted” to share the lovely photo with the world and “would like to thank everyone for all of the kind messages they have received,” Kensington Palace released in a statement.
Chris Jackson also said “I am thrilled and honoured that the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge have chosen to release this portrait to celebrate Prince George’s fourth birthday”.
According to my recent post, Duke and Duchess of Cambridge at Garden Party in Berlin for Queens Birthday, Prince George is on royal tour with his parents, which is now finishing up.
To celebrate the special day, Royal Life Magazine collated a splendid selection of most Royal Life magazines where the young Prince has dignified the cover.
You can still purchase these magazines which are available either as a print (check out your local newsagents!) or digital copy online.

Catherine, The Duchess of Cambridge recently went on her first ever Solo Trip to the Netherlands on a one-day trip without her husband, Prince William.
It is her first time travelling overseas on official royal business without William and her engagements were to be at The Hague and Rotterdam.
Catherine’s first trip included a tour of the Mauritshuis museum in the Hague, where she had lunch with the King, Queen Maxima and their three daughters at their royal residence.
After lunch, Catherine visited the Mauritshuis Museum where Catherine surveyed and inspected twenty-two paintings that were on loan from the British Royal Collection.
Emilie Gordenker was one of the museum directors and she stopped to have a chat with Catherine and the children, whilst the children were lined up in the streets waving their Union Jack British flags. All the children were assembled in a line ahead of three traditional British red telephone boxes which were constructed for the exhibition.
What photographers loved to shoot was the stunning photo of Catherine, who stopped to pose in front of the famous painting, Girl with a pearl earring, which was originally painted by Vermeer. To me, this is a remarkable beloved iconic picture which represents a stunning appearance of her.
Catherine showed much interest in the painting, and Ms Gordenker apparently said “She didn’t mention the earrings she was wearing” which showed she was more interested in something else other than her own appearance.
Catherine asked Emilie if the painting had become more popular since the film came out, and Emilies response was “It definitely had”.
This is Emilie in this photograph below.
Catherine’s last enagagement of the day was visiting Bouwkeet which is a district in Rotterdam.
Catherine also helped fix a bicycle wheel there with two teenagers which was a workshop and pupils took part in a robotics class during the visit to De Boukweet Work Space – it is an initiative which is community based where Boukweet is a financially disadvantaged, and needy area.
Richenel Lensa mentioned that “The kids were very happy to see that someone important had come to see what they are doing.”
This is why I believe she is such a fantastic role model for our current generation. She is not only poised, but is smart, intelligent and knows how to work with purpose. I mainly got most of my information from the latest Royal Life Magazine, which if you get the latest copy it is $9.95 in most Australian news agency’s. I used to have them put aside for me in Merredin, but now that I am in Perth, I have had to find them for myself, as it is a different and wider demographic. I got this copy in Floreat Forum, as Scarborough doesn’t have them. I am thinking of doing a piece on the family’s engagement when they went to Canada, but this engagement really stood out to me, as the pictures of Catherine are just stunning, and I am most particularly interested in oil paintings. So, grab your copy, and sit back, and catch up on all the latest on Royal Life News.
To celebrate 90 years of Queen Elizabeth the Second’s life, I have collated pictures of her style and fashion throughout her reign.
She was known as one of the worlds most glamorous women in 2007 by British Vogue.
In this pretty pink number, the Queen stepped out in Bombay during the Royal Tour of India, January 1961.
Over the years, the Queen has become famous for wearing bright, block colours, pearl necklaces, pristine white gloves, headscarves and plaid skirts.

Queen Elizabeth attends the ceremonial funeral service of former British Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher at St Paul’s Cathedral. Black is always CLASSIC! So, even if it wasn’t for a funeral, I think this look would look great to any occasion.
This is probably a favourite as I LOVE the colour purple!!!! Here, Queen Elizabeth II visits the National centre for Bowel Cancer research, and surgical Innovation, after opening the new Royal London Hospital building.
And here she is with her sister…..
I’ve added a few more favourite photos, just for fun!!!!
I especially love this outfit, the colour and the pearls give a soft touch and I always am the type to wear pearls to every event I go to! Yep! I’m a pearl kind of girl!!!! Just something about it is so classy!
The Queen knows how to dress consistently, and has excellent taste in all things fashion! She picks the right colours at the right time and she always looks so immaculate wherever she goes! And I love that about her!!!!
I hope you have enjoyed the photos. I wanted you to mainly enjoy the photos, as there’s no particular order. I don’t have the fashion in year order or alphabetical order, but it is to just mainly ENJOY the photos!!!!
AND the FASHION!!!!!
