9 Times Prince George Ditched The Sass & Showed Off His Rare Grin — PHOTOS

It's pretty much a given that any royal children Kate Middleton has or will have are going to be ridiculously cute, and Prince George is the perfect example of that. Don't get me wrong — I'm just as obsessed with Princess Charlotte, but as a toddler, Prince George has a lot more personality. And while he's definitely famous for being so over it ("it" being living life as the royal baby), his birthday portrait? Totally different from what we usually see from George. In a photo Kensington Palace released in honor of Prince George's second birthday on Wednesday, his dad, Prince William, is holding him as he grins directly at the camera. A smile from George is a rare thing, but it's basically the cutest thing ever.

Over the past two years, George has been an expert at looking exhausted by the responsibilities of being prince, so it's nice to see that he's actually probably just your average tot who's not always a fan of having a camera and a billion strangers in his face. It's hard to believe that he's already turning 2, but his 2 years on Earth have been pretty memorable, what with the whole "in line to be king" thing.

And this isn't the first time he's shown off his adorable grin. In fact, George is actually a pretty happy baby, even if he did accidentally make himself a meme as soon as he showed up on the planet.
