The first official pictures of the Prince George have appeared online. In a break from traditional royal protcol, the gorgeous family portraits were taken by Kate’s father, Michael Middleton.
The Duke and Duchess were photographed with Prince George at the Middleton family home in Bucklebury, west of London.
How super cute is this – the first official family portrait with Prince George and royal dog – Lupo!
In his first interview since the birth of Prince George on 22 July, Prince William told CNN that Prince George is a “little bit of a rascal.” It would seem that even the Future King of Great Britain is acting like a very normal newborn!
“He’s growing quite quickly actually. But he’s a little fighter – he wriggles around quite a lot and he doesn’t want to go to sleep that much,” Prince William added. “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,” he said.
Asked about the moment the pair stepped outside the hospital with Prince George to show him off to the world’s media, the 31-year-old Duke said they were “happy to show him off to whoever wanted to see him”. He admits that both Kate (or Catherine, as he refers to her) and himself were on a “high”.
“As any new parent knows, you’re only too happy to show off your new child and proclaim that he is the best-looking or the best everything.
“It’s nice that people want to see George, so I’m just glad he wasn’t screaming his head off the whole way through.”

What a lovely little family they are – and as much as I love getting a glimpse into their lives I really do hope they manage to keep some of their lives and that of their son, private and away from the glare of the media!
