Can you believe Prince George will ring in the big 0-1 in less than 24 hours?

Neither can we! And in honor of the wee one's special day, two new official photos of the future King of England have been released, and no surprise, he's killing us with cuteness (as if we would expect anything less from little George).

In the pics, Prince William and Kate Middleton's adorable son is mesmerized by the butterflies as he plays outside with his parents, marveling over Mother Nature while looking as aww-worthy as ever.

Clad in striped overalls and a blue polo shirt, the nearly one-year-old tot appears happy and at ease in his mama's arms while the royal couple, who are clearly doting parents, play with their baby boy outside ahead of his milestone celebration.

Over the weekend, two additional pics of the British heir were released to the public, and in one shot, the couple's son throws up his arms for balance as he takes a walk.

The precious pic is the first time we've seen George walking on his own, after the Duchess of Cambridge revealed that her son is officially standing on his own two feet while visiting the National Maritime Museum at Greenwich back in mid-June.

Last week, the Duke of Cambridge also shared some of their baby boy's latest milestones during a solo visit to Coventry's War Memorial Park, where he told primary school teacher Gill Naylor, "I think George will be running faster than me very soon."

Additionally, Kate Middleton's hubby met with Leicester resident Mavis Jarvis and couldn't help but gush over his sweet mini-me. "He said George is charging around and opens doors," Jarvis said, adding that William called his son "lovely."

In addition to putting his two feet to good use, George has also become a bona fide fashion icon and recently beat out his famous mom for the title of Best Dressed Royal.

So it should come as no surprise that his darling denim overall has already sold out (the dungarees were previously available at chic baby retailer Petit Bateau and cost a pretty reasonable $45.60) even before the second wave of official pics hit the web.

As for tomorrow, E! News has learned that Prince George will celebrate his first birthday at Kensington Palace, where he will be joined by close family and friends. Pippa Middleton, as well as Prince Harry and Queen Elizabeth II are all expected to attend the intimate, yet festive affair.

Can't wait to see what the tiny trendsetter wears!
