The birthday photo, which shows Prince George showing off his toothy grin in his $135 Rachel Riley smocked set as Prince William holds him, was taken by Mario Testino after Princess Charlotte’s christening in the gardens at Sandringham House.

"This photograph captures a very happy moment on what was a special day for the Duke and Duchess and their family," a Kensington Palace spokesperson said in a statement. "They are very pleased to share this picture as they celebrate Prince George's second birthday."

The palace teased that they would be sharing a new photo, tweeting, "We'll be sharing a special photo of Prince George later ahead of his birthday tomorrow. Watch this space!" — and they certainly delivered.

Prince George will celebrate his birthday at their family home at Anmer Hall by "spending the day privately in Norfolk," surrounded by his family, including little sister Princess Charlotte, Kate Middleton and Prince William, a palace source tells People.

We just love that the palace uses social media — otherwise we would miss seeing more cute photos of the royal family, including this one.

We absolutely love this family portrait that was taken in this same series.

"I am overwhelmed and honored to be chosen to take these portraits on the occasion of Princess Charlotte's christening, to carry on the documentation of the family that is the soul of this country, a country that has given me so much," said photographer Testino, who also took photos of Prince William’s mother, Princess Diana.

We love this candid snapshot of Prince George as he gets a peek of his sister sleeping in her stroller.

“Prince George peers over the pram carrying Princess Charlotte after her christening today,” the palace explained. “Princess Charlotte was taken to church in this Millson pram, previously used for Prince Andrew and Prince Edward.”

Lastly, we love the black-and-white photo of Prince William and Prince Harry taken with their father, Prince Charles.

Happy 2nd birthday, Prince George!
