Yesterday marked Prince George's eighth birthday.
And while it is not yet known how the Cambridges celebrated the young royal's big day, we do know that his mum, Kate Middleton, would've stayed up late the night before as she carried out her sweet birthday tradition.
Like any other mum, the Duchess of Cambridge is eager to make birthdays special for her three children, so every year once her little ones have gone to bed, she sets about making them their very own birthday cake.
Kate revealed her adorable tradition in 2019 when she and Prince William appeared on a special BBC programme with baking expert Mary Berry called A Berry Royal Christmas.
In it, she spoke of her love for baking and told Mary that when it comes to her children's birthdays: "I love making the cake."
She added: "It's become a bit of a tradition that I stay up 'til midnight with ridiculous amounts of cake mix and icing and I make far too much. But I love it."
Prince George Alexander Louis of Cambridge was born in the private Lindo Wing of St Mary’s Hospital in London in July 2013 and made his first public appearance a day later, when his parents stood on the hospital steps in front of a huge crowd of photographers and camera crews.
