Royal fans are loving this ‘never before seen’ picture of Prince George

Prince George always gives us reasons to smile with his cheeky moments, but royal fans are particularly loving this 'never before seen' picture of him.

The little royal has a large collection of photos when he’s seen looking adorable, even when he’s hiding from the cameras behind his dad, Prince William, like he did at the royal wedding.

But with such an appetite for cute pictures of the four-year-old, it’s very surprising that a ‘never-seen’ before picture of him has emerged – and it’s SO cute.

The snap has been shared by several royal accounts on Instagram, with many explaining that while it was taken in 2015 as part of their Christmas photo shoot for the traditional holiday card, the picture remained a secret until it was recently unearthed by a Tumblr account.

In the sweet picture, a two-year-old Prince George is seen mesmerised by a bubble while sitting on a park bench.

One account, called ‘Tea time with the Cambridges’, wrote alongside the picture: ‘NEW PICTURE OF PRINCE GEORGE FROM 2015 (same set from the Christmas photo of 2015)! HE’S SO CUTE AND SO SMALL! Now he’s a big boy😭’.

Fans of the royal family were delighted that the picture has now been revealed, almost three years since it was taken.

One commented on Instagram: ‘This is the cutest thing ever’; while another also said: ‘What a darling shot and who doesn’t love bubbles! The light catches them and it is magic the way they change colour! Sweet pic of a darling future king.’

The snap was taken at the same time as the Cambridges took the pictures for their official Christmas card in 2015.

While all their family pictures tend to be adorable, the 2015 Christmas card holds special significance as it their first as a family of four.

The snaps were taken just a few months after Princess Charlotte was born in May 2015, and it was the first time little George had to share the spotlight with his little sister.

The 2018 Christmas card will be very special for the Cambridges again, as it mark their first as family of five, after they welcomed little Prince Louis into their brood.

The little prince will be christened today, so we might even be treated to a glimpse of the family together – fingers crossed!
