Prince George has had plenty of adorable moments in the past five years, and Getty Images photographer Chris Jackson has been there to capture them all.
INSIDER had the chance to speak with Jackson about his new book “Modern Monarchy,” and he shared that his favourite image of the prince comes from the royal family’s 2016 trip to Canada.
“My favourite photograph of Prince George is probably when he is playing with bubbles in Canada,” Jackson told INSIDER. “The sheer joy on his face just makes me smile whenever I see it.”
George and Princess Charlotte are two of his favourite royals to photograph during his travels with the family because of their “fun dynamic,” Jackson said.
“I love photographing Prince George and Princess Charlotte and often come away with a big smile behind the camera,” Jackson told us. “They add an exciting and fun dynamic to any royal tour.”
In his new book, Jackson also points to the time George arrived at the hospital to meet his baby sister Charlotte for the first time in May 2015 as one of his favourite moments. George’s reaction to the large crowd outside the hospital took everyone by surprise.
“There was a look of astonishment on his face that prompted a collective ‘Awww!’ from the crowd,” Jackson writes in the book. “In synchrony with his father, the young prince offered a shy and incredibly sweet wave, while Prince William gave him a reassuring hug.”
He also features this adorable moment of George commenting on the queen’s hat in the book as another one of his favourites.
While Jackson has taken the majority of the photos we see of George and Charlotte, there’s one other person who gives him a run for his money: their mother Kate Middleton. The duchess has been known to snap and share her own photos of her children for special occasions, and Jackson relates to her love of photography.
“We’ve certainly seen some lovely photos from the Duchess of Cambridge over the years,” he told us. “As someone who loves photographing his family, I really understand the passion that she has for capturing images of those around her.”
