Prince George winks at his great-grandfather Philip in new photo for his eighth birthday – .

Prince George beams as he cheekily sits on his parents’ Land Rover Defender in a photo released for his eighth birthday on Thursday.
Including the famous vehicle in the image will be seen as a poignant tribute to the late Duke of Edinburgh, who had a passion for engineering.

Philip, who died in April a few months before his 100th birthday, drove Land Rovers regularly and at his funeral the Duke’s casket was carried by a specially adapted defender he helped design.

The future king, casually dressed in a striped polo-style top and shorts, was photographed by proud mum Kate during a family trip to Norfolk earlier this month.

The Duchess of Cambridge has become an accomplished photographer and in recent years has published her own photos to celebrate her children’s birthdays.

Kate may have a passion for photography, but she revealed that her kids sometimes want their mom to put down her camera.

Speaking to a finalist in her Hold Still photography competition, the Duchess said of George, Charlotte and Louis: “Everyone is saying, ‘Mum please stop taking pictures. “

The little boy will be sure to get a homemade cake from his mother, who has revealed that she often has to stay awake until midnight to bake them.

Previously appearing on the BBC’s’ A Berry Royal Christmas’ special, Kate confessed: ‘It has become a bit of a tradition that I stay awake until midnight with ridiculous amounts of cake mix and frosting and I’m doing way too much. But I love it. “

The godmother of the future king, Julia Samuel, 60, who was a good friend of Diana, reveals that she buys “impossible” toys for the young one that William must spend days putting together carefully.

She said, “I do to George what [Diana] made us, which is to give impossible toys that are really loud and take a long time to make.

“William then has to spend days assembling. And then put all the machines together, and it makes horrible thundering noises and flashing lights and all that. “

She revealed the heartwarming tradition when she was a guest on the How To Fail With Elizabeth Day podcast – in an episode last year to mark what would have been Diana’s 59th birthday.
