The young royal is understood to be marking the occasion on vacation with his family, having been spotted boarding a helicopter near his home in Kensington Palace on Monday. It comes after a busy few months of royal events, which have seen George become a more prominent member of the Royal Family.

Past birthday celebrations for George have included a 2014 Peter Rabbit-themed event hosted by Catherine's parents, party planning entrepreneurs Carole and Michael Middleton, per Cornwall Live. That same year the young prince received a luxe playhouse, complete with wood-burning stove and daybed at Prince Charles' Highgrove Estate (via the Mirror).

Queen Elizabeth’s Story Is More Tragic Than People Know

  Queen Elizabeth’s Story Is More Tragic Than People Know Queen Elizabeth’s Story Is More Tragic Than People KnowMost of us know her simply as “The Queen,” but she was born Elizabeth Alexandra Mary Windsor on April 21, 1926. At the time of her birth, her paternal grandfather George V was king, and her father was his second son. This meant that she was third in line for the throne—and unlikely to ever come close to it. Well, fate had something different in mind.

So what is planned to celebrate his special day this year?

"The photograph was taken while on holiday in the UK earlier this month by the duchess," a Kensington Palace spokesman told The Telegraph.

Prince Charles and Camilla Parker Bowles retweeted George's photo along with the message, "Happy 9th Birthday to Prince George!" and a cupcake emoji.

Besides photographs, the Duchess of Cambridge has another tradition for her children's' birthdays: homemade cake. "I love making the cake," she told Mary Berry in 2019 on "A Berry Royal Christmas" (via Woman & Home). "It's become a bit of a tradition that I stay up 'til midnight with ridiculous amounts of cake mix and icing and I make far too much. But I love it."
