Happy birthday, Prince George!
Prince William and Kate Middleton’s eldest son turns five this coming Sunday.
The royal family is already celebrating. And they go all out for the third in line to the throne. It was just announced that the Royal Mint will release a special commemorative £5 coin in honor of Prince George’s birthday.
People reports the coin will feature an image of St. George, the patron saint of England, and a dragon. Legend goes the dragon was terrorizing a town near where St. George lived, so he tamed and killed the beast as any good knight would do.
According to the Royal Mint, the legend represents courage and the triumph of good over evil.
And while we’re not gifting Prince George with anything as spectacular as a commemorative coin, we are still celebrating his birthday with a look back at his most adorable moments. Mostly, it’s just a gift for us. He’s quite the little charmer!
