LONDON — On Friday, Britain’s Prince George’s 9th birthday was marked by the release of a new photo showing the young member of the royal family dressed in baby blue and beaming from ear to ear.

The photo was taken this month, according to Kensington Palace, on an undisclosed beach in Norfolk, east England, where his parents, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, have a home on Queen Elizabeth II’s sprawling Sandringham estate.

George, third in line to the British throne, is pictured with a toothy smile in a picture taken by his mother Catherine.

It has become an annual tradition to celebrate the birthdays of William and Catherine’s children by posting photographs, usually taken by the Duchess.

Young members of the royal family are generally not in the public eye, but this year, as the nation celebrated their great-grandmother’s platinum jubilee in June, marking the 70th anniversary of her reign, they attended a number of public events.

George’s younger brother, Prince Louis, captured hearts and international headlines after his emotional performance on the balcony of Buckingham Palace amid pomp. Spawning memes and online parodies, young Louis was seen making cheeky faces, plugging his ears with his hands, waving and yawning as his mother tried to clean up the mess.

Prince George was born with much fanfare on July 22, 2013, as reporters and pundits waited outside London’s St Mary’s Hospital in Paddington to catch a glimpse of the royal couple’s firstborn and heir.

A few months later he was christened George Alexander Louis and officially known as Prince George of Cambridge. He became a brother in 2015 with the birth of Princess Charlotte and then Louis in 2018.

George was last seen at the Wimbledon men’s tennis final in July, watching from the royal box with his parents as Serbia’s Novak Djokovic defeated Australia’s Nick Kyrgios at a club in southwest London.

George’s birthday was celebrated on the front pages of many British newspapers, but Friday’s coverage was also dominated by the more controversial royal story of his late grandmother, Princess Diana.

On Thursday, the BBC said it would pay “substantial damages” to William and Prince Harry’s former nanny Tiggy Legge-Bourke, now known as Alexandra Pettifer, for “false and malicious” allegations leveled against her, including having had an affair with Prince Charles and an abortion as part of an attempt by BBC journalist Martin Bashir to get an exclusive interview.

An explosive BBC interview aired in 1995 stunned the world with its candor and insight into Diana’s unhappy marriage to Prince Charles. In an interview, Diana told viewers that “there were three of us in this marriage,” referring to Charles’s relationship with Camilla Parker-Bowles, now his wife. Years later, an independent investigation concluded that Bashir had used forged documents and “deceitful behavior” in preparing the important meeting that led to the interview.

The interview was publicly criticized by William and Harry, and Bashir has since left the BBC for health reasons.

BBC reporter used ‘deceitful behavior’ to get Princess Diana interviewed in 1995, investigation concludes.

Diana’s brother, Charles Spencer, welcomed Thursday’s news. tweet“While I’m glad to see another innocent victim of this horrific scandal acquitted, I’m surprised that no criminal charges have yet been brought against those responsible.”

The interview was “the result of a deceptive tactic used by the BBC,” BBC CEO Tim Davy said on Thursday. “I would like to take this opportunity to publicly apologize to her. [Pettifer]to the Prince of Wales and the Dukes of Cambridge and Sussex for how Princess Diana was deceived and the consequent impact on their lives.”

Davy said the BBC had let Diana, the royal family and the audience down. As a result, he added: “I have decided that the BBC will never show this program again; nor will we license it in whole or in part to other broadcasters.”
