The photograph was taken in the gardens of Clarence House by Matt Porteous, after the christening of the his baby brother Louis earlier this month. Prince George, who is beaming as he stands against a wall with his hands neatly tucked behind his back, wears a shirt by Amaia Kids. The short-sleeved white top with blue stitching is called a “Daniel shirt” and costs £42.

Elon Musk reaches deal with artist in ‘farting unicorn’ image rowElon Musk has reached an agreement with an artist over an image of a “farting unicorn” the Tesla boss used to promote his cars. Tom Edwards, a potter from Colorado, US, who had claimed the business mogul had “ripped off” his drawing featured on a mug, said the issue had now been resolved “in a way that everyone feels good about”. Mr Musk had last year posted the cartoon unicorn image on Twitter, without permission, to advertise his Tesla electric car range.
