Fan of Prince George? Well, if you’re headed to he UK soon you’ll be able to pick up some very cute souvenirs indeed – a sheet of stamps featuring the little Royal’s face.

George’s cheeky grin graces a new set of commemorative stamps alongside his great-grandma the Queen, his grandfather Prince Charles, and of course his dad Prince William.

The Royal family commissioned photographer Ranald MacKechnie to take the four-generation photo in honour of the Queen’s 90th birthday. According to royal aides, three-year-old George was “as good as gold” during the 30-minute photography session, and didn’t even seem bothered by the fact that he had to stand on a set of foam blocks to be at the right height.

“He was absolutely charming, as you can see from the picture,” Ranald told The Telegraph.

“You only have a short window of opportunity with small children, but Prince George was on good form and everyone seemed to enjoy seeing him enjoy the day.”

As for the foam blocks, they’re not exactly Buckingham Palace appropriate, but due to the strict height restrictions when photographing for a sheet of stamps, Ranald had no choice.

“It would have been nice to have used a piece of furniture from the room,” he said. “But it wasn’t possible, so I brought along the blocks for him to stand on. I had some other ones too in case he had grown since they measured him, but he hadn’t.”

Excuse us, we’re going to go and melt into a puddle of cuteness.
