(USA TODAY/KYTX) - It's good to be a future king — as in Prince George of Cambridge, the toast of the world as he turns a year old on today.
The adorable and adored third-in-line to the British throne is even more a focus of obsessive interest today than he was when he arrived on Planet Mania last year. He was met by a cheering, roaring, sweating mob of media people and a delighted royal family. He's the world's most famous baby but he's not the most photographed baby; Prince William and Duchess Kate are too protective for that.
That's why rare new pictures of him, at a butterfly exhibit at London's Natural History Museum, released on Saturday and Monday to mark his birthday, were greeted with such fervor, at least in the media and among his many fans.
