Prince George: First official photographs released

Michael Middleton, the duchess's father, took the pictures in the family's gardenThe first official photographs of Prince George have been released.
 
The baby – who is third in line to the British throne – is pictured with his parents, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge.
 
The pictures were taken by the duchess's father, Michael Middleton, in the garden of their family home in Bucklebury, Berkshire.
 
Taken earlier this month, they show the royal couple, Prince George and their black cocker spaniel, Lupo.
 
Tilly, a golden retriever belonging to the Middleton family, can be seen lying down behind them.
 
The photographs of Prince George, who was born on 22 July, were released by Kensington Palace.
 
On Monday Prince William, giving his first interview since becoming a father, told CNN: "He's a little bit of a rascal, I'll put it that way.
 
"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."
 
BBC royal correspondent Nicholas Witchell said the new family look "unselfconscious, relaxed and happy – much like most couples might look with their first-born baby".
 
He added: "Of course they're aware of what's expected of them. There will be staff – a nanny – to help in due course, but for the moment it's all rather informal and many might think, refreshing."
