Prince George is pictured sitting in a Land Rover – the car closely associated with his great-grandfather the Duke of Edinburgh – in a new photo to mark his eighth birthday.

It shows the prince, who is celebrating his birthday Thursday, with a beaming smile as he perches on the hood of a Land Rover Defender against the backdrop of a field.

The Duke, who died in April, regularly drove vehicles of the British brand 4×4.

The photo was taken by the Duchess of Cambridge in Norfolk this month
