Awwww! The first official family portraits of Kate Middleton, Prince William and their son, Prince George, have been released. Breaking in tradition, the photos were taken by Kate's dad, Michael, instead of a professional. The shoot took place earlier this month in the garden of the Middleton's family home in Bucklebury.
With the sun shining bright, the new mom holds her baby boy, who appears to be sleeping, in a shawl. Proud papa William stands to Kate's left side with his arm around her as they both smile at the camera.
"He's a little bit of a rascal, put it that way. So he either reminds me of my brother [Prince Harry] or me when I was younger. I'm not sure," William told CNN on Monday in his first interview since becoming a dad. "But he's doing very well at the moment. He does like to keep having his nappy [diaper] changed." William admitted that he has been on diaper duty, another thing that breaks with royal tradition!
In the second picture, the smiling pair, both 31, sit on the grass with George, who's third in line to the throne behind his dad and grandpa Prince Charles, held by Kate and their dog Lupo (which is Italian for "wolf"). The Middleton family dog, a golden retriever named Tilly, sleeps behind them.
Luckily, Lupo is adjusting just fine to the family's new addition.
"He's coping all right, actually. As a lot of people know who have got dogs and bringing a newborn back, they take a little bit of time to adapt, but, no he's been all right so far," the Duke of Cambridge shared. "He's been slobbering sort of around the house a bit, so he's perfectly happy."
Following their son's birth, the royal couple has been keeping a mostly low profile at their home in Anglesey, Wales. They're also showing some of their more modern ways, taking care of their son themselves instead of hiring nannies.
