The Duchess of Cambridge, née Kate Middleton, celebrates her 33rd birthday on Friday surrounded by her family, including her son Prince George. To celebrate her special day we've chosen some of the cutest photos of Kate and George, including the snap that she said was her favourite photo of the little boy, who will become a big brother this year.
The first official photos of Kate and her son were taken by her father Michael Middleton in the garden of the Middleton family home in Bucklebury, Berkshire. The two photos, which were released in August 2013, see the Duchess looking relaxed as she cradles baby George alongside her husband Prince William and pet dog Lupo.
From his christening at the Chapel Royal as St James' Palace to his first birthday portrait, the adorable prince has since had many more memorable moments in his first year. However it is a picture of George holding on to Kate for a hug at his first official royal engagement in New Zealand that she has previously described as her favourite photo of him.
