PRINCE GEORGE showed he is just like any other six-year-old in a newly released picture with the Queen, Prince Charles and Prince William.
Prince George donned a stylish pair of plaid trousers as he stood alongside his great-grandmother the Queen, grandfather Prince Charles and dad Prince William for a rare portrait of the four royals to mark the new decade 2020. Prince George’s trousers were noticeably wrinkled in the picture, showing that even as a royal Kate and William’s eldest child is still like any six-year-old.
The photograph of Her Majesty alongside Prince Charles, Prince William and Prince George was taken on December 18, when the Queen hosted the Royal Family at her London royal residence for their annual Christmas lunch.
It was also the same day the Queen, Charles, William and George make Christmas puddings as part of a Royal British Legion initiative.
It is unclear whether the portrait was taken before or after the pudding making but it understandable on such a busy day that George’s trousers may have got a little wrinkled.
In a video 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 laugh.

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!”
Prince George and his sister Charlotte made their public Sandringham debut in December, delighting royal fans who gathered near St Mary Magdalene Church on Christmas Day.
The pair will return to school after their Christmas break on Tuesday, January 7.
George and Charlotte both attend Thomas’s Battersea in London and are in Year Two and Reception respectively.
One insider last year revealed “very little fuss” is made about Prince George at the exclusive school.

The source told Vanity Fair: “He’s very popular and has lots of friends, and there’s very little fuss made about who he is.”
William and Kate have also tried to give their children the most normal upbringing they can, despite the royal spotlight.
Speaking to the BBC in 2016, William said: “I love my children in the same way any father does, and I hope George loves me the same any son does to his father. We are very normal in that sense.
“There’ll be a time and a place to bring George up and understand how he fits in, in the world.
“But right now it’s just a case of keeping a secure, stable environment around him and showing as much love as I can as a father.”
