The couple usually share a portrait of their children to mark special milestones, often taken by keen amateur photographer Kate.
However royal biographer Angela Levin has suggested they might break with tradition this year due to previous attacks from online trolls about George’s appearance.
Prince William and Kate Middleton are reportedly considering not issuing an official photograph of Prince George to mark his birthday this year, a royal expert has claimed (pictured: George on his seventh birthday last year)
During the programme royal correspondent Roya Nikkah praised the Cambridges for easing their son into a life of service by bringing him along to watch the European Championships at Wembley.
She said the young prince’s appearance was ‘a very clever way’ of introducing him to public duties at such a young age’.
‘This is an official duty for Prince George at the age of seven,’ Roya explained. ‘It’s lovely and happy and there’s a lot of emotion.
‘Getting him used to big crowds and knowing that he is being watched by millions of people – it’s quite a clever way of doing it.’

Roya added that the Queen is enjoying getting back to her official duties following the death of the Duke of Edinburgh in April.
‘Anyone who knows the Queen or works with the Queen knows that she would take a little bit of time, but not a huge amount, to mourn her husband,’ she said.
‘What we really saw from June onwards was her carrying out a lot of activities. She was at the G7. She is getting back to business with a real burst, and she looks happy again.’
Ahead of the Duchess of Cornwall’s 74th birthday tomorrow, Angela told how Camilla has become ‘increasingly admired by people for her hard work’.
Speaking on True Royalty TV’s Royal Beat, Angela Levin said: ‘There are rumours that we might not see the photograph [of Prince George] when he’s eight, because they’ve been so upset by the rudeness of people mocking a little boy aged seven, and I hope they can overcome that’
‘For the last few weeks she has been non-stop,’ she observed. ‘Here is a woman who once said when she first joined the Royal Family, “I have a hair appointment on Monday, I won’t be able to do anything” and now she is working day in and day out.’
Roya added: ‘In the last 10 years the public have seen how much happier she has made The Prince of Wales and also the really punchy causes she has put her name to and followed [such as] sexual violence, domestic abuse and children’s literacy.
‘She cares about some really important things, and I think people have slowly seen her less as the “evil, cruel mistress-in-waiting” and more for the woman she is, which is someone who loves the Prince of Wales and is a great companion for him.’
