Birthday boy: UK’s Prince George is 6

LONDON (AP) — Kensington Palace has released three new photographs before Prince George’s birthday.

The future king turns 6 today. It’s become a tradition for the palace to release snapshots taken by his mother Kate, the Duchess of Cambridge.

In two of the pictures George is seen with a big smile as he wears an English soccer jersey. The third shows him on a family holiday.

George is the great-grandson of Queen Elizabeth II. He is third in line for the throne.

‘Endgame’ now biggest movie ever

LOS ANGELES (AP) — The global box office has a new king in “Avengers: Endgame.”

The superhero extravaganza this weekend usurped “Avatar” to become the highest-grossing film of all time, with an estimated $2.79 billion in worldwide grosses in just 13 weeks.

“Avatar” held onto the record for a decade at $2.789 billion.

The title comes with a few caveats, however, including the fact that “Avatar’s” grosses are not adjusted for inflation.
