The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge have shared the sweetest photo of Prince George in honour of his fifth birthday.

Kensington Palace released the photograph on behalf of the parents last night.

They posted the cutest photo of George grinning like the Cheshire Cat- just look at that cheeky smile.

Isn’t he looking more and more like William as he grows up?

Kensington Palace tweeted: “The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are very pleased to share a new photograph of Prince George to mark his fifth birthday – thank you everyone for your lovely messages.”

The new photo of Prince George was taken by photographer Matt Porteous.

It is understood that the snap was taken shortly after Prince Louis’ christening in the garden of Clarence House.

The future king will certainly be celebrating his fifth birthday in style. Rumour has it Kate and William have whisked the children off to the Caribbean.

The family are said to be holidaying in the exclusive island of Mustique with Kate’s family, including younger sister Pippa and her husband James Matthews.

Their chosen destination is extremely private with a no-fly zone over the island, and only 100 villas.

Prince Louis' christening took place on Monday, 9th July at Westminster Abbey and it was a day filled with love and laugher.

And now Kensington Place have given us four stunning portraits from the wonderful occasion. 

Shot by Matt Holyoak at Clarence House following the christening ceremony, each photograph captures the joy of the day and the closeness of the family. 

The group shot includes Prince William and Kate Middleton in front and centre, with their children Prince George, Princess Charlotte, and Prince Louis.

Their respective families are surrounding them, including William's father Prince Charles and the Duchess of Cornwall, Camilla Parker-Bowle on the left, with Prince Harry and the Duchess of Sussex, Meghan Markle.

Meanwhile, on the right are the Middletons — Kate's parents Michael and Carole, as well as sister Pippa, and her husband James, and their younger brother James. 

According to Cosmopolitan, photographer Matt released a statement saying, "everyone was so relaxed and in such good spirits, it was an absolute pleasure. I only hope I have captured some of that joy in my photographs."

There is also a shot of Kate with newborn baby Louis in the grounds of Clarence House and besotted does she look?!

People were quick to comment on the images on social media, with one writing, ''this will go down in history as one of the most beautiful photos of mother and child ever'' while another said, ''what a beautiful moment of joy.''

The official photograph collection would not be complete without a snap of the family of five. 

While Prince William is grinning widely and Kate is cooing at Prince Louis, it was George and Charlotte that seem to enchant everybody. 

One wrote ''gorgeous photo… one blessed family'' and another said, ''George's pose tho'' followed by love heart eye emojis.

Charlotte wasn't forgotten with one comment saying, ''Charlotte steals the show again, such a sweetheart.''

Queen Elizabeth and Prince Philip did not attend the christening and do not appear in any of the portraits.

Royal reporter Rebecca English released a statement explaining why this is the case.

She tweeted, ''the Queen and the Duke of Edinburgh will not be attending today's christening. There's no health issue for the Queen. She was working flat out in Scotland last week and has got a busy few days in London with the RAF Centenary event tomorrow and Trump on Friday.''

Nevertheless, as one commentator wrote, ''so lovely to see Royals looking like a ‘normal’ and very happy family'' and from these photo's, that is clear to see.

The Duchess of Cambridge looked like the proudest mum as she arrived at the Chapel Royal for her son, Prince Louis’ christening service.

The doting mum cradled her 11-week-old baby boy in her arms as she entered the grounds of St. James’s Palace.

The young royal dozed in his mum’s arms as they greeted the Archbishop of Canterbury. It is understood that Kate said that Louis is just like George.

Kate also told the Archbishop of Canterbury that Louis was sleeping and “very peaceful.” She added: “I hope he stays like this.”

Prince William entered the chapel hand-in-hand with Prince George and Princess Charlotte, who looked as adorable as ever.

The siblings waved to the press and greeted the Archbishop as they entered the chapel.

The family-of-five were also joined by Prince Charles and Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall.

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle also attended the celebration. It is understood that the Duke of Sussex purchased a first edition of first-edition of AA Milne's Winnie-The-Pooh as a gift for the young prince.

Members of the Middleton family also attended the service, including Kate’s sister Pippa and Lucy Middleton, who was confirmed as one of Louis’ godmothers.

Two notable members of the royal family were missing from the christening service. Earlier today, it was announced that Queen Elizabeth and Prince Philip would not be attending the christening of Prince Louis due to the monarch’s hectic schedule.

Prince Louis' christening is tomorrow, and we're gearing ourselves up for some seriously cute pictures.

Here's everything you need to know about the day tomorrow:

The newest member of the family will be christened on Monday, July 9 at The Chapel Royal, St James’s Palace, London.

Prince Louis has kept with tradition as royal babies are usually baptised within two or three months after their birth. Prince George was baptised in October 2013, and Princess Charlotte was in July 2015.

Tomorrow, it will be the first time Prince William, Kate, Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis will be seen in public together as a family-of-five.

According to reports, Prince Louis will be christened during an intimate ceremony with 20-30 people and Kensington Palace have said it will start at 4pm and last approximately 40 minutes.

And as with previous years, it is expected that some members of the public will be allowed to gather outside the church grounds to catch a glimpse of the royals. After the ceremony, the newest prince will make his debut outside the chapel.

Prince Louis will be christened by The Archbishop of Canterbury Justin Welby, and he will wear the same gown that was worn by his siblings Prince George and Princess Charlotte.

The dress is a replica of the famous Honiton lace christening gown and the original was made in 1841 for the christening of Queen Victoria and Prince Alberts’ first child Princess Victoria. 

The date, July 9th also carries extra royal meaning: on the same date, back in 1947, the then Princess Elizabeth announced her engagement to Prince Philip, so it's extra touching that Prince Louis, one of Queen Elizabeth II's great-grandchildren, will be christened on the anniversary of her engagement announcement.

One does not simply drive over to meet the young Prince Louis. For an occasion so momentous, one must take a grander mode of transportation.

Like a helicopter! On Tuesday afternoon, Queen Elizabeth met her sixth great-grandchild. She flew to Kensington Palace in a helicopter from Windsor Castle, where Prince Philip is still recovering from hip surgery.

The Queen seemed unruffled after the 40-minute flight and had a bright bouquet of flowers for the fifth-in-line to the throne.

It's a simple gesture, but also just so sweet that she brought the blooms for the now 10-day-old boy and his family. The humblest gifts are sometimes the most special.

According to the Telegraph, the 92-year-old was driven the rest of the way to the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge's apartment in a green Range Rover.

We're sure she was delighted to meet the baby, whose full title is His Royal Highness Prince Louis Arthur Charles of Cambridge.

William is apparently taking a period of time off following Louis' arrival so he, too, can spend quality time with the Prince.

Pippa Matthews, Kate's sister, was reportedly the first visitor to meet the new Prince at the Palace. She was photographed driving away.

It's such an exciting time for the family, and we hope these first days are going well for both mum and baby!

Kensington Palace has confirmed that the new royal baby is named Prince Louis Arthur Charles.

The official title given to Will and Kate’s second son is His Royal Highest (HRH) Prince Louis Arthur Charles, and he will be fifth in line for the throne.

Louis may not come as a surprise as it has been embedded throughout royal history and has some very close family ties.

Prince Louis' name references his own father, Prince William, who holds the name as his middle name, along with Prince George.

The Baptism:

Royal babies are usually baptised within two or three months after their birth. Prince George was baptised in October 2013 and Princess Charlotte was in July 2015.

According to The Telegraph, royal babies tend to follow Queen Victoria’s tradition of being baptised over the Lily Front. Queen Victoria started the practice in 1841 with her eldest daughter Princess Victoria.

According to reports, six godparents were selected for Princess Charlotte and seven for Prince George. The water from the Jordan River is used in the ceremony.

Both Georges' and Charlotte’s services were held in private, but during Charlotte’s baptism, members of the public were welcomed to come to the churchyard.

It is reported that both Kate and Prince Louis are doing well and in a tweet, Kensington Palace thanked the hospital staff on Kate’s behalf.

Prince Louis was born on Monday at 11.01am and weighed in at 8lbs 7oz. The name Arthur was the bookmaker’s firm favourite with 9/4 odds.

Do you think the name Louis is a good fit for a prince?
