The first ten will even get a crown to wear as they mark the young prince’s first birthday at the UK’s tallest sculpture, with visitors simply having to provide a valid form of ID to gain free entry.

Prince George is the first child born to the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge. His birth made national headlines around the world with Prince William and Kate Middleton showing the royal tot off to the waiting press.
