Prince George made a rare public appearance with his parents today, joining them at an air show. And, yes, he was looking as cute as a button like always!

The tiny royal was pictured with Prince William and Kate Middleton visiting RAF Fairford on Friday morning (8 July) ahead of the Royal International Air Tattoo.

Cuddling up to mum Kate.



Such a cutie!

George was dressed in blue shorts and a white top, and wore a pair of ear defends to protect his ears from the noise of the planes around him.

In the cockpit!



He was pictured flashing a smile and waving for the crowds, trying out the cockpit of a Red Arrows jet, and nestling into his mum's arms.

Of course, his dad, Prince William, served as a search and rescue pilot for the RAF in Anglesey until 2013. He lived with Kate in the region, and they've always spoken fondly of it.

A royal wave!



The royal couple returned to Anglesey in February this year to attend a ceremony marking the end of RAF Search and Rescue Force operations at RAF Valley after 75 years.

Meanwhile, George, who turns three on 22 July, rarely makes public appearances with his parents, as they prefer to keep him and sister Princess Charlotte, one, away from the limelight, so they can grown up in private.
