Yes she still reminds me strongly of Carole Middleton when I see her.

I think both children resemble the Middletons rather than the Windsors, in general.

I think I see what you mean concerning William. I wouldn't necessarily say he looks stressed or distracted but he doesn't looke like 'part of the family'. The position Catherine takes in shows that she is the head of the family, she rules the roost. William, apart from observing his son, looks like a lackey. As if he has to obey her. I get a strange vibe from them, he has nothing to tell.
But if it doesn't worry him and works for them, alright.

I think there would have been more unity had he held Charlotte.

Yes George has moments where he resembles William (mannerisms etc) but he reminds me more of Michael Middleton than William right now.

Both pics of Charlotte have reminded me of Carole Middleton.

Nice to see the change in features ...those Middleton's have been around awhile too!

I think that's why I loved Princess Anne's 2014 Christmas card so much. It had Anne, Tim, Peter, Autumn, Savannah, Isla, Zara, Mike, Mia and the five family dogs. It looked complete.
Too many dogs. One would have been enough. (I mean in the picture; it's entirely their business how many dogs they own).

My my, what a LOT of information about family relationships you are able to glean from this one picture. William, to me, just looks like he is keeping a watchful eye on George.

Not just this picture - it's a feeling I've had for a looong time from a lot of more pictures I've seen. But I'll retreat.

This "us four" is one of the pictures I've been waiting for. I'm very glad they decided to share this picture. Charlotte do remind me of her grandmother, Carole. George, a mix of William and Michael. They make a very beautiful family.

I don't think one should over analyze this picture. They all look happy and William is looking to see what George is up to. Looks as if George was doing some entertaining, lol.

Not getting that from this picture, but mothers are usually the backbone of the family. Especially, where I come from. The Cambridges have a happy family life.

Yes to me William is keeping an eye on George, I have a feeling this is common!

I agree with Dman. Mothers are usually the backbone of the family, main caretaker of the children. Looks totally normal to me.

Not only common but sheer necessity. From what we've heard about George, its very possible that its a now you see him, now you don't kind of a situation. The year of the two year old is very aptly names "the terrible twos".

Based on the stories we heard about William...I bet George is giving his dad a run for his money. It does sound like K&W are more hands on type of parents so it's not just the nanny having to keep watch!

William's hand is poised right above George's train. He could have been trying to get George's attention with it. George doesn't appear one to sit still for to long.

That Charlotte is a little cabbage patch doll though, lol. I know William will be very protective of his baby girl.

George looks like he is about to make a run for it and Catherine has grabbed him by the seat of his pants.

William is about to grab Charlotte's shoe before Lupo comes after it.

exactly! I know William is happy he won't have deal with Charlotte's dating life for some time, but those days are coming. Same for Catherine and George.

It's great to see a new family photo of the Cambridges. I am surprised how much analysis is going on regarding every detail of the picture and conclusions that really don't exist as it seems like a perfectly ordinary picture to me.
