(Newser) – The palace is releasing special pictures, the Royal Mint is striking a commemorative coin, and newspapers are publishing glowing tributes. What's all the fuss about? A little boy who will be king. Prince George turns 1 today, and while he might be too young to appreciate it, the milestone is a national event. Prince William and wife Kate, who plan a small party at Kensington Palace, have said little in public about the ups and downs of parenting, but we do know the royal babe is walking, thanks to official photos taken at the Natural History Museum in London and released to celebrate the tot's big day.
