Prince William and Duchess Kate’s son, Prince George is third in line to the British throne after his father and grandfather. He was born on July 22, 2013 at St Mary’s Hospital in London. His father William was born in this hospital. George is the first grandchild of King Charles and Lady Diana, who died in a car accident in Paris in 1997. His great-grandparents are Queen Elizabeth II and Prince Philip. Therefore, he belongs to the Houses of Windsor and Schleswig-Holstein-Sonderburg-Glücksburg.
The Prince was christened George Alexander Louis by the Archbishop of Canterbury on 23 October 2013 in the Chapel Royal at St James’s Palace. Prince George lives with his parents and younger sister, Princess Charlotte Elizabeth Diana, who was born on May 2, 2015, in Apartment 1A at Kensington Palace, the former home of Princess Margaret, the Queen’s sister. As of January 6, 2016, George attended the Westacre Montessori School in Norfolk. Since September 7, 2017, the prince has been going to Thomas School in Battersea. He was accompanied to his first day of school by his father, William.
Prince George career
His Royal Highness Prince George of Cambridge was known as the “Royal Baby” long before he was born. Public interest in the pregnancy of his mother, Duchess Catherine, formerly Kate Middleton, was so enormous that on June 28, 2013 the Museum of London opened an exhibition dedicated specifically to royal children’s clothing. Media representatives from all over the world gathered weeks before the birth in front of St. Mary’s Hospital in London in order not to miss the birth of the baby.
After the birth of the heir to the throne, a wave of sympathy could be observed worldwide. From British Prime Minister David Cameron to US President Barack Obama, everyone congratulated the baby. In New Zealand, little George was greeted with a 21-gun salute. Canada painted Niagara Falls baby blue in his honor. British betting shops accepted tips for the prince’s name. The Brits showed good instincts, often betting on George and Alexander, who were at the top of the betting list alongside Henry and James.
Remarkable things about Prince George
Prince George made the English royal family more and more popular from the day he was born. Prince George made his first trip abroad at the age of nine months, when he represented the British royal family with his parents during a stay in Australia and New Zealand in April 2014. On May 2, 2015, the nearly two-year-old was spotted outside St Mary’s Hospital with his father again, this time to visit his mother and newborn sister, Princess Charlotte.
