LONDON (AFP) - Prince George shows he has got the hang of walking in a new picture released by his parents Prince William and Kate to mark the future king's first birthday on Tuesday.

The little boy, wearing striped dungaree shorts over a navy blue top, is pictured confidently on his feet with his arms outstretched and his eyes fixed on his destination.

The photograph was taken a few weeks ago at London's Natural History Museum, where the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge took their son to visit the Sensational Butterflies outdoor exhibition.

"Prince George was very lively and very sure of himself and confident - a very determined young boy," said Mr John Stillwell, a photographer with the Press Association wire service who took the picture.
