The first official photos of the royal baby have been released.
The royal couple have opted for a more laidback family backyard style portrait in these shots captured by Kate’s father Michael Middleton.
Joining Wills, Kate and baby George are the couple’s cocker spaniel Lupo and the Middleton family’s retriever Tilly.
With the photos being leaked online prior to the official palace release, Kensington Palace subsequently issued a statement.
“The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge have chosen to release two family photographs with their son, Prince George.”
“The photographs were taken by Mr. Michael Middleton in early August in the garden of the Middleton family home in Bucklebury, Berkshire,” the statement said.
This is the first time that the world is catching a glimpse of baby George since the royal couple descended on the St Marys Hospital stairs on July 23.
Prince William gave his first interview since the royal birth, speaking to CNN’s Max Foster about.
“He’s a little bit of a rascal, I’ll put it that way.”
“He either reminds me of my brother or me when I was younger, I’m not sure, but he’s doing very well at the moment.”
