"TRH are very pleased to share this lovely picture, and would like to thank everyone for all of the kind messages they have received," the Kensington Palace tweeted further.
The delightful photo was clicked by Getty Images royal photographer Chris Jackson at the end of June at the Kensington Palace.
"I'm thrilled and honoured that the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge have chosen to release this portrait to celebrate Prince George's fourth birthday. He is such a happy little boy and certainly injects some fun into a photoshoot," Mr Jackson told BBC.
Prince George has spent the run-up to his fourth birthday on an official tour of Poland and Germany with his parents, Prince William and Kate Middleton.
He will go to private preparatory school, Thomas's Battersea, located a few miles from the family residence in Kensington Palace in London.
