From the moment he was born, Prince George has lifted our spirits with countless heart-melting moments. Whether at royal weddings or christenings or even Queen Elizabeth II鈥檚 birthday, we can always count on the pint-sized royal for a cute photo op. And he may have just outdone himself.

Today, July 22, marks the future king鈥檚 fifth birthday, and in celebration of the milestone, the palace released an official birthday portrait.

Shot by photographer Matt Porteous, who most recently took portraits of the royal family at Prince Louis鈥 christening, the snap shows Prince George beaming from ear to ear and showing off his winning smile and perfectly coiffed blond hair. 鈥淭he Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are very pleased to share a new photograph of Prince George to mark his fifth birthday 鈥 thank you everyone for your lovely messages,鈥 Kensington Palace wrote in the pic鈥檚 caption, adding a red birthday balloon emoji.

If the prince鈥檚 outfit of jean shorts and a spiffy white button-down shirt with blue piping looks familiar, that鈥檚 because it鈥檚 the one he wore to his baby brother鈥檚 christening. As it turns out, the birthday portrait was taken that very same day.

To celebrate the grand occasion of George鈥檚 birthday, the British royal mint has also released a collectible 拢5 coin featuring his namesake, St. George. Happy birthday, Prince George!
