Future monarch Prince George, who celebrates his first birthday Tuesday, is seen looking at butterflies with fascination in two newly-released photos.

The youngest royal family member has his eyes set on the beautiful insect during an outing with his doting parents, Prince William and Kate Middleton.

Prince George, Butterfly

The images were shot at the Sensational Butterflies exhibit at London's Natural History Museum by John Stillwell of the UK's Press Association wire service.

He also took the photo released Saturday of Prince George walking (running, some might say, as much as a toddler can do so) in his Petit Bateau overalls.

"He was fascinated to see the them fly but a little scared when they got a bit close to him," Stillwell says of the prince's encounter with the Blue Morpho butterfly.

Stillwell says he kept his distance and used a long lens so William and Kate, both 32, could relax and enjoy the peace at the exhibit with their son."

It's hard to believe that a year has gone by so quickly, but the Royal Baby himself, His Royal Highness Prince George of Cambridge, turns one today.

Kids. They grow up so fast.

Prince George and Parents
Prince George, now one year old, is fascinated by butterflies in this adorable new photo released by the royal family. Parents Kate and William look on proudly.

In typical British royal family fashion, the young one commemorated his first birthday by posing for an official family portrait, and it was just the best.

Not only did it show Prince George walking, he looked precious as ever in overalls, surely making mom, dad, grandpa and great grandma proud.

Young George will spend his big day at the Balmoral Castle in Scotland with his parents and relatives such as Prince Charles and Queen Elizabeth II.

The little Prince also enjoyed a birthday party with a Peter Rabbit (the beloved English children's books) theme at Kate Middleton’s parents house on Saturday.

Prince George, a.k.a. the Royal Baby, a.k.a. HRH Prince George Alexander Louis of Cambridge, is about to turn one. And what a year it has been!

This future heir, possessed of "a voice to match any lion’s roar," according to his dad, Prince William, is not the type to sit quietly and rest on his laurels.

He's the kind of baby who pops balloons, has no fear of strangers or animals, and goes HARD at play dates, holding court and running the show.

His current hobbies of choice? These days, says his mom, Duchess Kate Middleton, "he's most interested in helicopters and anything with wheels."

It's only fitting for a little guy who's always on the go.

As he comes upon his first birthday July 22, the young boy who will be king has already notched several milestones: smiles, belly rolls, babbles and steps.

Check out the video above for a look at some of George's first year's most memorable moments, and scroll through his life in pictures after the jump!

On George's appetite: While George behaved well in his first few public appearances, he often cried loudly and frequently, and did not sleep through the night.

The baby prince, still breastfeeding, was permanently hungry ... only in the new year, when Kate introduced solids, did George finally sleep through the night.

On their new nanny: Spanish-born Maria Teresa Turrion Borallo spent a week bonding with George at Kate’s family home in March [with] the Middleton grandparents.

Meanwhile, Will and Kate jetted off to the Maldives for a second honeymoon. They caught flak for leaving him behind, but on another occasion, did not ...

How much longer before Kate Middleton and Prince William welcome Royal Baby #2? That was the topic on everyone's mind on St. Patrick's Day ... and any day in the UK.

While attending the annual St. Patrick's Day parade in Aldershot, England, Prince William revealed he and Middleton are currently planning on ...

Being content with just one royal baby in the family at the moment.

That's right. No plans to get Kate Middleton pregnant again. Yet.

When asked by Regimental Sergeant Major Ray Collister if he's planning on more kids, William admitted, "Maybe one day. One's enough at the moment."

Understandable. Prince George is not even nine months old now.

Queen Elizabeth II spoke about her precious great-grandson, royal baby, Prince George, in reflecting on the past year during her annual Christmas speech.

"Here at home, my own family it is a little larger this Christmas," the 87-year-old monarch said in a video message recorded at Buckingham Palace.

"As so many of you will know, the arrival of a baby gives everyone the chance to contemplate the future, with renewed happiness and hope," the Queen said.

"For the new parents, life will never be quite the same again."

The speech features never before seen footage of Prince George taken after his christening as four generations of royals posed for the official portraits.

The Queen said the christening was a "happy occasion."

For Prince William and Kate Middleton, life will never be the same indeed. In a good way. The new parents seem like naturals and happy as ever.

Pippa Middleton's Christening gift to royal baby Prince George is ... interesting. What did his aunt get him and will the young heir appreciate it in a few years?

Christening Gift

The younger sister of Kate Middleton reportedly purchased silver sculptures specifically crafted from the Prince of Cambridge’s baby hands and feet.

The keepsakes cost approximately $11,000. The pieces designed by Wrightson and Platt (above) are each custom designed in a small London facility.

In order to create the molds, Prince George would have had to have his little hands and feet placed in a jelly-like, organic mixture of water and powder.

The entire process only 30 seconds, so if the entire Prince George Christening went off without a hitch, the youngster likely endured that with no problem.

They're just like the rest of us, you guys.

"Silver Cross have provided royalty across the world with their prams and are delighted that the Duke and Duchess have chosen the premier British brand for Prince George" a representative of the company states.
