Prince Georges special birthday treat from the Queen as royal turns nine

Prince George received a special treat from his "Gan-Gan", the Queen of England, for his recent birthday.

The eldest child of Prince William and Kate Middleton and heir to the throne turned nine on Friday, July 22.

The Duchess of Cambridge, 40, carried on the tradition of releasing her own pictures to celebrate the birthdays of her three children, with Prince George ’s photo showing the years spent perfecting his cheeky grin are paying off.

And the Queen herself shared a sweet birthday message to mark the occasion, reports The Mirror.

The monarch wrote a birthday message on her official Twitter account where she thanked the band of the Irish Guards for a special treat put on for the young royal, as reported by the Express.

The post included a video of the Irish Guards along with a heartfelt message.

The caption read: "Thank you @irishguardsband for playing Happy Birthday to mark Prince George's birthday today!

"The Duke of Cambridge is the Colonel of the @irish_guards."

Prince William became Colonel of the Irish Guards in 2011 and wore the uniform during his wedding to Kate that same year.
