The official first picture of Prince George to mark his first birthday on Tuesday arrived in media inboxes minutes ago.

He's walking on his own, arms out, dressed in denim pin-striped short overalls with a navy shirt and navy baby shoes and socks. There's something of a Mona Lisa smile on his face.

As expected, it was another opportunity for royal fans to go gaga over the little prince, third-in-line to the throne and as yet oblivious to hullabaloo over his first milestone.

The picture, the first of three (two more will be released Monday evening), was taken earlier this month when Prince William and Duchess Kate took their son to visit the outdoor Sensational Butterflies exhibit at the Natural History Museum in London, where Kate is royal patron.

All of the pictures were taken by a staff photographer for the semi-official British Press Association, John Stillwell.
