Kensington palace releases an official photo for George’s second birthday. The picture was taken by Testino after Princess Charlotte’s christening on July 5, in the gardens at Sandringham House, on the Queen’s Norfolk estate. Spokesperson:
This photograph captures a very happy moment on what was a most special day for the Duke and Duchess and their family.
Kensington Palace guards play a special musical tribute for the prince who turns two years old.
Prince William and Middleton takes legal action on behalf of their son, Prince George, and their Nanny who is being harassed by a freelance photographer. Kensington Palace:
There is reason to suspect that the individual may have been placing Prince George under surveillance and monitoring his daily routines for a period of time. No parent would tolerate the suspicion of someone pursuing and harassing their child and carer whilst their child is playing in a public park or going about their daily activities.
Commonwealth leaders agree to change succession laws so that the daughter of any future UK monarch will have equal right to the throne as a son. As of December, 2012, the law has not yet been altered but a Cabinet Office spokesman says formal consent is expected “very shortly” and ministers have indicated that the legislation will apply to any royal births from the date of the leaders’ decision. The monarch is also head of the armed forces, supreme governor of the Church of England, head of state of the UK and 15 other Commonwealth countries
