Prince George’s Newest Royal Portrait Is 100% Adorable
Another day, another instance that’s making us really wish we were a member of the British monarchy. While Kate and Will’s recent trip to India has been giving us total #vacaygoals (not to mention a lot of travel wardrobe inspo), there’s a new snap that’s equal parts regal + adorable. In honor of the Queen’s 90th birthday, a new photo has been snapped of all the royal family members in line for the throne.
On the far left you’ll see Prince Charles, then Queen Elizabeth, Prince George and Prince William. While everyone looks great, it’s definitely little Prince George who has stolen the spotlight. Sure, his knee socks are adorable and that smile is making our hearts melt a bit, but his booster step… OMG. Don’t mind us, we’ll just be over here squealing for the rest of the day.
The photo was snapped in the White Drawing Room at Buckingham Palace in the summer of 2015. In addition to making the Internet swoon, this photo will also be turned into commemorative stamps of each person’s face. UK friends, if anyone wants to mail us a postcard using a stamp with baby Prince George’s face on it, that would be MUCH appreciated. Thanks.

Editor’s note: In an earlier version of this post we accidentally referred to “little Prince George” as “little Prince William.” Our mistake! The mistake has been fixed, and we’re sorry for the royal mix-up!
Back in January, we introduced you to a feel-good cause to inspire your New Year's resolution: a walking challenge to help raise funds for the amazing cancer fighters at The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society. I took part in the challenge with the Brit + Co team and ended up walking 105+ miles in January — it was awesome.
This spring, there's a new challenge on the horizon, The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society's Big Climb. The ask: On May 15, 2021, you can step up to take cancer down by committing to climb 1,311 steps, walking 3.2 miles, or doing 440 chair step-ups at home as part of the Big Climb. If you need some motivation to bring movement back into your daily routine — look no further!
As always, it's free to sign up, but climbers are encouraged to set a fundraising goal to help beat cancer. We'll be organizing another Brit + Co team to step up, and I hope you'll join us too! Keep scrolling for a peek at where I'll be completing the challenge in my Los Angeles neighborhood around the hidden Silver Lake Stairs. Happy climbing!
Never underestimate the power of an accountability buddy! I asked my in-laws, my partner, and a few friends to join me so we can keep each other motivated and accountable in completing the challenge — virtual high-fives all around! Also, my dog Fox is a great climber, too.
An aesthetically pleasing backdrop is a huge motivator for me! I'm fortunate to have all sorts of painted steps around my neighborhood to keep the challenge interesting, but you can also keep cool inside with at-home chair step-ups.
Don't forget to share your progress on social — #BigClimb!
Feel free to break the challenge up if you need to by tackling half the distance in the AM and half at sunset. Here's me 1,311 steps later and ready for a break — but, think I earned this one!
