If all this waiting to become king doesn’t work out for Prince George, he might consider a career in art.
Prince William and Kate Middleton proudly shared a watercolor painting of the 9-year-old royal via Kensington Palace’s official Twitter account on Christmas Day.
The striking portrait was of a reindeer in the snow, joined by two red wands.
“Merry Christmas! 🎨 by George” read the title.
Of course, George’s grandfather, King Charles III, was a talented amateur painter and famous for his watercolors.
The King often paints royal residences such as his country home of Highgrove and Balmoral Castle in Scotland.
In October, a print of Charles’ Balmoral painting sold at auction for an impressive $6,500, despite an estimate of $675.
The drawing, presented with a certificate, is signed in pencil by Charles and dated 2001.
Earlier this year, 79 of King Charles’ watercolors went on display at The Garrison Chapel in London, marking the first full exhibition of his artwork. It included outdoor scenes set in Scotland, France and Africa.
It’s been a busy holiday season for the royal family amid controversy surrounding Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s upcoming Netflix documentary Harry and Meghan.
The family attended a carol service at Westminster Abbey honoring the late Queen Elizabeth II. It was organized by the Princess of Wales.
“Her Majesty held Christmas close to her heart as a time that brought people together and reminded us of the importance of faith, friendship and family, and to show compassion and empathy,” Middleton explained in a teaser video before the service.
The royal family also attended a celebratory service at St Mary Magdalene Church in Norfolk. It was the first time William and Kate’s youngest son, Prince Louis, joined the annual event.
The Prince and Princess of Wales have three children: Prince George, Princess Charlotte, 7, and Prince Louis, 4.
