At 7pm EST, the official pictures of the new prince were released. The photos were taken by Kate’s dad, Michael in the garden of the Middleton family home. The doting parents were snapped sitting on the grass along with family dog Lupo and Middleton family dog, Tilly.
In the second picture, the future king is bundled tightly and asleep in Kate’s arms. The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are clearly mesmerized by their tiny bundle.
Instead of picking a celebrity photographer and in a significant break from royal tradition, the two snapshots were carefully selected from the Cambridge’s own private family album.
Kate looks radiant in a fuchsia knot front dress by Seraphine (£46). The dress features a flattering empire line cut, cap sleeves, a deep v-neckline that pulls aside for breastfeeding and knot front detail. It is also available in coral and navy.
The Duchess of Cambridge accessorized with her Annoushka diamond and pearl drop earrings.
Prince George is again swaddled in that same blanket he left the hospital in by Nottinghamshire firm G. H. Hurt & Son (£45).
