How Will Prince George Celebrate His Second Birthday?

How does a two-year-old prince celebrate his second birthday? Yesterday, Kensington Palace released a new official photo of George, showing the cherub-faced tot in his daddy William's arms, smiling adorably at the camera, but today's festivities reportedly will include a private party at Anmer Hall, his parent's country home on Queen Elizabeth II's Sandringham Estate (a.k.a. great-grandma's house).

As George's mom and dad are the Duke and Dutchess of Cambridge, expect his party to be worthy of a tiny prince, but also kind of normal. William and Kate seem like regular people despite their royal status, don't you think? Not that they ran to Party City to get decorations or ordered a sheet cake from Costco, but I bet everything will be tastefully done and not the lavish birthday shindigs some celebrity parents host for their kids. I can't see Will and Kate getting a Ferris wheel like Kimye did for North's first birthday party, or dropping $80,000 on a birthday present like the diamond-encrusted Barbie Jay-Z and Beyonce allegedly gave to Blue Ivy when she turned one. And while George is a bit of a fashionista like his mom, I am certain he won't have a runway party that costs $157,000 like a mom in China organized for her toddler.

Last year, Prince George's first birthday party was held at the family's Kensington Palace home and had the theme of ... Peter Rabbit! See? Totally normal.

Happy Birthday, George! Remember to share your new toys with your baby sister.
