Mr Porteous said: 'I really enjoyed the opportunity to take these photographs of Prince George. It was a very relaxed and enjoyable atmosphere. I'm honoured that they have decided to share these images with the public to mark his third birthday.'

In the picture showing George with the family dog, he can be seen holding a partially eaten ice cream close to Lupo's mouth.

The cocker spaniel is a strain of the breed traditionally used as a gundog - and they can cause havoc around the house.

An RSPCA spokesman said: 'It is lovely that Prince George is trying to help keep his family dog, Lupo, cool in these high temperatures.

'We would advise people to be cautious when giving their dogs food meant for human consumption as some items, like chocolate, can be highly toxic to dogs and dairy items can be difficult for them to digest.

'Instead of ice cream we would suggest making an ice lolly from pet-friendly ingredients. Making these can be really fun for children and the end product is both safe and enjoyable for dogs.'
