The little prince, who wears a striped shirt, is pictured in Norfolk, England, near his parents’ home in Queen Elizabeth’s Sandringham Mansion. The Defender is a nod to George’s late great-grandfather Prince Philip passed away in April, two months before his 100th birthday.
Defender is Philip’s all-time favorite car. A forest green Land Rover – which he customized himself – carried his coffin to St George’s Chapel on the grounds of Windsor Castle, where the funeral took place.
The prince has had a hectic summer so far in the run-up to his birthday. Last month, he watched the England national football team play in Wembley Stadium.
He cheered on England to victory over Germany in the UEFA European Football Championship 2020 match at the stadium at the end of June and attended the final, also at Wembley, earlier this month. .
Young George is said to be a big football fan, which is no surprise given his father’s role as president of the Football Association.
England’s 2-1 win over Germany in June sent the national team into the quarter-finals and gave the country, which is still being held back by social restrictions, a much-needed boost. NS England’s team eventually lost to Italy in the penalty shootout.
Bells were set to ring at Westminster Abbey to mark the prince’s birthday, a longstanding royal tradition. Ringtone was canceled last year due to lockdown and social distancing restrictions caused by COVID-19.
The last time Prince George heard a bell in his honor was on his sixth birthday two years ago.
According to British press reports, the Central Council of Church Bellers (CCCBR) has published its latest guidance on ringing and it is allowed again, in a well-ventilated setting.
