On the eve of his first birthday, the British Royal family on Monday released two more photos of Prince George.

The snaps were posted to Twitter with the captions "Gorgeous Prince George" and "Curious George."

Like the photo that was released Saturday, these were taken during a visit to the Sensational Butterflies exhibit at the National History Museum earlier this month, of which the Duchess of Cambridge is a patron.

The prince's parents, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, also issued a statement.

"We would like to take this opportunity on George's first birthday to thank everyone over the last year, wherever we have met them, both at home and overseas, for their warm and generous good wishes to George and our family."

The prince, who is third in line to the British throne after Prince William and Prince Charles, will turn one on Tuesday.

Hopefully he doesn't treat any gifts he receives the same way he treated this stuffed kangaroo toy.
