The first birthday of Prince George is also a cause for celebration, and his latest pictures will bring great pleasure to many other parents and grandparents, and to the nation in general. His parents are bringing him up to equip him to face a huge task in his later life, but so far they have done this with dignity and with commendable informality.
At a time when there is so much bad news internationally, and the heartbreaking deaths of so many people including children in the Middle East, over the Ukraine and elsewhere, the sight of a young and bonny royal prince on his first birthday brings some comfort and joy to us all.
