Royal baby pictures are here as promised, two pictures featuring the royal baby with mom, Kate Middleton, and dad, Prince William, were released by Kensington Palace today. The two royal baby photos were taken in the backyard at the Middleton home in Bucklebury. In one of the pictures the royal baby is sharing the spotlight with Lupo, Kate and William's dog.
According to Hello Magazine on Aug. 20, these pictures of the royal baby with the royal couple were taken by Michael Middleton, Kate's father. Do you think that he ever had an inkling that one day millions of folks from around the world would be seeking his pictures online with the subjects being his daughter and two future kings? Probably not.
Kate and William break royal tradition by forgoing professional portraits in favor of more relaxed snapshots taken in the backyard of the Middleton's home.
Kate, William and royal baby George, spent their first few weeks home from the hospital at the Middleton family estate. Prince George is said to have some quality bonding time with Kate's side of the family. Kate isn't due to appear at her first official royal engagement since the royal baby's birth until September, but William already has two under his belt, according to ABC News.
William told the media a little bit about his son, the future king, saying that he is “pretty loud and extremely good-looking.” He also joked about the amount of work that goes into caring for a newborn saying:
"I thought search-and-rescue duties over Snowdonia were physically and mentally demanding but looking after a three-week-old baby is right up there."
Palace officials report that Kate is expected to make her first official appearance since giving birth to the royal baby at a charity dinner with William on Sept. 12.
The baby's official title is His Royal Highness Prince George of Cambridge and his full name is Prince George Alexander Louis. The royal baby weighed 8 pounds, 6 ounces when he was born on July 22 at 4:24 p.m. London time. The announcement of his birth was sent out about four hours later by the palace officials.
