Prince George, now third in line to the throne, is seven years old, and one of the busiest youngsters in the Royal Family. He, along with his brother and sister, recently accompanied the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge to an in-person royal duty. Eagle-eyed royal fans will have noticed an increasingly adult-looking prince, who is steadily gaining on his mother and father.
How tall is Prince George?
Most children will go through a series of growth spurts early on.
Although not quite average given his lineage, Prince George is much the same and is steadily gaining on his parents.
The Cambridge family made a recent visit to the London Palladium theatre, where they attended a Christmas pantomime performance in support of the National Lottery.

Pictures of the event showed the Cambridge children looking much more grown-up than usual.
Prince Louis, now two, walked hand-in-hand with the Duchess of Cambridge while Princess Charlotte walked without her father’s.
Prince George seemed much taller, and royal fans noticed.
The prince now stands taller than Prince William’s elbow, quickly gaining on the Duke of Cambridge.
Royal news: The current line of succession
While the royals have not officially released information on the prince’s height, approximations put him at just above four feet.
He will likely grow much taller in the years to come, given the heights of both of his parents.
Prince William is one of the taller royals, standing at six foot three, while the Duchess of Cambridge is five foot nine.
Genetics tend to make sons slightly taller than their fathers, so Prince George may one day overtake the future king.
