Prince George charms in Xmas pics
THREE Christmas photos of a rosy-cheeked Prince George were released by Britain's royal family on Saturday, offering a festive glimpse of the future king.
The pictures show 17-month-old George in a courtyard at Kensington Palace.
George is pictured wearing a jumper depicting the soldiers who guard his great-grandmother, Queen Elizabeth II, at Buckingham Palace, complete with red tunics and bearskin hats.
Prince William and Kate guard their child's privacy closely, and have requested that the press let him grow up without intrusion.
While George is often photographed during official engagements, royal lawyers sent a legal warning in October to a photographer who was reportedly trying to take pictures of him with his nanny in a London park.
George is due to be joined by a brother or sister next year - the Duchess of Cambridge is pregnant with the couple's second child and expected to give birth in April.
