In celebration of Prince George’s second birthday, the royal guardsmen did a brief performance outside Buckingham Palace.
Kensington Palace’s official Twitter page posted a short video that featured the royal guardsmen playing in the tune of “Happy Birthday.” The 36-second clip was captioned: “Thank you to the Grenadier Guards for playing ‘Happy Birthday’ at today’s Guard Change!” It was also accompanied with a hashtag #HappyBirthdayPrinceGeorge that trended worldwide. Moreover, a photo by fashion photographer Mario Testino was posted on social media to celebrate the young prince’s birthday.
According to People magazine, Prince George is celebrating his second birthday at his parents' country home, Anmer Hall, located at his great-grandmother Queen Elizabeth II’s Sandringham estate.
The Telegraph confirmed the royal family’s intimate celebration in Norfolk, considering that both the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge have to attend to their duties. Although both parents are tied up with a hectic schedule, Kate Middleton reportedly planned the party herself. The source added that the Middleton grandparents together with Prince George’s godparents will be coming to visit. Unfortunately, Prince Charles and the Duchess of Cornwall will not be joining the affair due to a scheduled official visit to the West Country.
According to reports, this year’s celebration will be a far more “normal” party than last year’s lavish bash at Kensington Palace, which had a Peter Rabbit theme.
Prince George of Cambridge is third in line to the British throne.
