Prince George Photos: Kate Middleton & Prince William Pose With Royal Baby
Prince George was welcomed by Prince William and Kate Middleton – and the interested global community – on July 22. The public first caught a glimpse of the royal baby when the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge showed him off upon leaving the hospital the following day, and now the future king of England’s first official baby photos with his adoring parents have been released.
The photos, taken in early August at the Middleton family home in Bucklebury Berkshire, had Kate’s father Michael Middleton behind the camera. The first photo features the young royal couple standing in the garden with Kate cradling their infant child. The second, which has a more relaxed feel, has the 31-year-old parents with their first born son lounging on a blanket in the grass, bookended by their pup Lupo and the Middleton family golden retriever.
For the pictures, Kate donned a loose-fitting fuchsia dress, while William sported a pair of dark jeans and a blue and white-checkered button up. Prince George, meanwhile, was wrapped up in the swaddling blanket that he appeared in when he was taken home from the hospital.
On Monday, William gave his first post-fatherhood interview, in which he spoke about the trials of changing “nappies” and the novelty of welcoming his first child into the world, to CNN’s Max Foster.
"I think the last few weeks for me have been just a very different emotional experience, something I never thought I would feel myself," he revealed. "And I find, again it's only been a short period, but a lot of things affect me differently now."
"He's a little bit of a rascal, put it that way," the royal added. "So he either reminds me of my brother [Prince Harry] or me when I was younger. I'm not sure. But, he's doing very well at the moment. He does like to keep having his nappy changed."
Looking back on the day he exited the hospital with Kate, Prince William admitted that introducing George to the world was something that, as a father, he relished.
"As any new parent knows, you're only too happy to show off your new child and, you know, proclaim that he is the best-looking or the best everything," the duke said. “It's nice that people want to see George—I'm just glad he wasn't screaming his head off the whole way through," William joked.
William also addressed his now famous car seat maneuvering that saw the second in line for the throne snap the seat in, close the door and proceed to the driver's seat with masterful precision. He admitted that his smooth moves weren't exactly beginner's luck. “I had actually practiced with that seat, but only once before,” he said. “I was terrified that I was going to do some, you know, it was going to fall off or the door wasn't going to close properly,"
Though Kate hasn’t spoken publicly since Prince George was taken home from the hospital, William was more than willing to speak on her behalf to say that the first-time mother is doing a “fantastic job” with their royal baby.
