He may have been only three -months-old but little Jude Thurston did not fluff his lines when called to stand in for a VIP – that’s a very important prince.

Jude was the stand-in for Prince George on the occasion of the future king’s birthday on today (Tuesday) at a celebration held at Howard Junior School in Lynn. School office manager Tracey Link – who happens to be Jude’s grandmother – said: “He seemed very aware of royal protocol and was very well behaved.”

The school held a “street party in the hall” for the celebration. Life-size cut-outs of the Queen and the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge were also on view plus plenty of sandwiches and Victoria sponge. Mrs Link said: “The kids had an amazing time.” Josh is pictured with his mother Chelsea Link and surrounded by Howard Junior pupils.
