Prince George set to celebrate key milestone but mum Kate may not be happy

Prince George is set to celebrate a key milestone this month, with the Cambridge household expected to prepare days in advance.

Kate Middleton and Prince William will celebrate their son's ninth birthday with noisy toys and traditions in tow.

Prince George Alexander Louis made his debut at St Mary's Hospital in Paddington on July 22, 2013, and he was introduced to the world the very next day.

The third-in-line to the throne was named after royal figures King George V and King George VI, Lord Louis Mountbatten.

The Queen was also honoured within his name, as Kate and William used 'Alexander' as the male version of the monarch's middle name 'Alexandra'.

While nothing is known about how Prince George will be marking his birthday day, it is likely that it will be a private family affair, reports The Mirror.

It is also expected that The Duchess of Cambridge will carry on her much-loved tradition of taking her children's official birthday photographs.

For George's last birthday, he was pictured dressed in a simple striped t-shirt sitting on top of his great-grandfather Prince Philip's old Land Rover.

One of Prince George's birthday traditions has a special link to his grandmother, Diana, Princess of Wales and was previously revealed by his godmother, Julia Samuel.

She said of George: “He is amazing. He's funny and feisty and cheeky and God she [Diana] would have loved him so much. That is heartbreaking for all of them.”

She added that she continues a tradition started by Diana, who was godmother to her own son, revealing: “So I do to George what she did to us which is give impossible toys which are really noisy, take a lot of making.”

“I come in slightly tipped by the size of the present that William then has to spend days putting together. And then put all the machinery together and it makes awful tooting noises and lights flashing and all of that. That makes me laugh and it makes George laugh."

As well as Prince George and The Duchess of Cornwall, who will celebrate her birthday on July 17, a handful of other royals will also be marking their birthdays this month.

The Queen's great-nephew, Charles Armstrong-Jones, Viscount Linley, will turn 23 on July 1 and The Queen's cousin, Prince Michael of Kent, will turn 80 on July 4.
