Royal lego birthday party for Prince George

Lego are hosting a birthday party with a difference for the youngest member of the royal family, Prince George.

Royal guests included Prince George himself – newly created to mark his birthday as a toddler made from 15 individual lego bricks – his parents, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, and both sets of grandparents – the Duke and Duchess of Cornwall, and Michael and Carole Middleton.

His great-grandparents were also there, Her Majesty the Queen and the Duke of Edinburgh, as well as his uncle Prince Harry and Aunt Pippa Middleton.

We have a lot of fun with our tiny LEGO Royals – we recently gave our Royal ladies a Royal Ascot makeover with bespoke hats designed exclusively for us by the Queen’s Milliner, and our announcement of Prince George's birth last year was a real crowd pleaser. We hope people will be just as delighted with our special LEGOLAND birthday party."

Christmas with the Royal grandparents for Berkshire's Prince

It was a full house at Sandringham as four generations gathered for the festivities on the Norfolk estate.

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge looked relaxed as they made the journey to St Mary Magdalene Church on foot holding hands.

But there was no sign of Prince George as temperatures stayed just above freezing.

Wearing a tartan Alexander McQueen coat and a hat by Gina Foster, Kate smiled and waved to the crowds.

As she left the service, she stopped to chat to Cicely Howard, 75, from Great Yarmouth, who asked about the baby.

"She told me he was having a lovely day but was more interested in the wrapping paper than the presents,"

– Ms Howard, Royal watcher
