You know what? We believe him.

Yesterday, the Royal Mail released  special edition stamps to commemorate Her Majesty’s 90th birthday.

Prince George joined his living predecessors for an historic photoshoot, one that sees the future king standing atop durable foam stacks whilst holding his father’s hand.

Brilliant.

The little prince’s first stamp shoot was a true lesson in photography.  Ranald Mackechnie, the man behind the lens, had a splendid time shooting his royal subject.

“He was fascinated by my lights and all the kit, and he was quite happy standing on the blocks, Mackechnie said, according to the Telegraph.

“I took maybe 80 or 100 shots, but when I saw this one I knew straight away that was it.” 

And though mum and dad have admitted in the past that he’s a bit of a handful at times, George was a gosh darn delight on game day.

“He was absolutely charming, as you can see from the picture,” Mackechnie said.

“You only have a short window of opportunity with small children, but Prince George was on good form and everyone seemed to enjoy seeing him enjoy the day.”

George wore the same Rachel Riley shirt and shorts suit (with blue Amaia socks and Start-Rite shoes) that we saw in his first photoshoot with little sister, Princess Charlotte.
