Happy second birthday, Prince George!

Prince George's Cutest Moments in Honor of His 2nd Birthday

The eagerly awaited first child of William and Kate graced the world with his presence on July 22, 2013, and the world went wild.

Too-cute-for-words George Alexander Louis was born at St Mary's Hospital in London, weighing 8 pounds and 6 ounces. This marked the second time that three generations of direct heirs to the British throne have been alive at the same time, a situation that last occurred between 1894 and 1901, in the last seven years of the reign of Queen Victoria.

George's birth sent the world into a frenzy with people copying his outfits and even using the same name for their own babies.

Kensington Palace shared a fifth -- really, really cute -- photo from Charlotte's christening day Tuesday, to celebrate George's birthday. It was first posted on Twitter and Instagram, as has become a bit of a trend for William and Kate.

Look who's turning two tomorrow! #HappyBirthdayPrinceGeorge
