PRINCE GEORGE has been pictured alongside his great-grandmother the Queen, grandfather Prince Charles and dad Prince William wearing a smart pair of trousers.
Prince George looked all grown-up standing next to Prince Charles wearing a blue and green tartan pair of trousers. Traditionally royal boys have been dressed in shorts, even in winter, and Prince George’s outfits in the past have been no exception.
However William and Kate’s eldest has now reached the age where he can wear trousers at official royal events and photos.
The young royal made his Sandringham Christmas debut as he joined the royals for their traditional Christmas Day church service in public with his sister Princess Charlotte.
Prince George donned trousers, while his sister looked adorable in a festive green coat.

In the photo, William, Charlotte and young Louis are picture all bundled up in coats and jumpers, while Prince George wears shorts and a fleece jacket.
The photo was taken by Kate at their place in Norfolk and so the Duchess of Cambridge did not feature in the snap.
For Cambridge family’s Christmas photo in 2018, George was pictured wearing jeans like his dad William.
The family picture to mark the beginning of the 2020 decade is only the second time such a portrait of just the Queen and her heirs has been issued.

The first was released in April 2016 to celebrate Her Majesty’s 90th birthday and featured a three-year-old Prince George in shorts.
The photo released on Friday night by photographer Ranald Mackechnie was taken on December 18, the same day as the Christmas pudding photos – which were released before Christmas – and the Royal Family’s annual Christmas lunch, hosted by the Queen at Buckingham Palace.
The Queen, Charles, William and George made Christmas puddings in Buckingham Palace in front of a Christmas tree adorned with regal corgi and crown decorations.

In footage shared on the Royal Family’s social media accounts as well as being played during the Queen’s Christmas message, George was seen battling with the thick pudding mixture with a wooden spoon, making his grandfather chuckle.
The video was shared on Twitter with the caption: “The Queen, the Prince of Wales, the Duke of Cambridge and Prince George came together to make Christmas puddings at Buckingham Palace as part of a Royal British Legion initiative.”
The Queen is patron of the Royal British Legion and the puddings will be served at Christmas gatherings of the Armed Forces community in late 2020.
However, it was young Prince George who stole the show as royal fans flocked to comment on the post.

One Twitter user wrote: “Prince George is so cute fighting with that pudding.”
Another said: “Wow, George is getting tall!”
A third replied: “Thank you for sharing this clip, Her Majesty looks beautiful and Prince George is growing up very fast!”
