Is there any info on who took this one? Edit: I just read it is Jason Bell. The CNN copy is grainy so I was thinking maybe grandpa was at it again.
It's cute and that little scamp seems very alert and happy.

OK - the DM has a much better copy of the image. His sweater has George stitched into it! Cuteness alert! http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/arti...d-parents.html

A big boy is right; I think William will be taking George out to the soccer field in a few years with that hefty built.

That's such a great family photo. George is so adorable and I like that they included Lupo. I only wish they had released more than one photo.

I love George's sweater.

The only thing missing is Lupo wearing a sweater with his name!

Great to see a new photo!
It is hard to tell whether the image has been "photoshopped" or not as we cannot tell if it was a sunny day or just a dull day on the north side of the building!
However, I do not mind so much photos being manipulated to adjust contrast, colour or lighting as this is no different from making adjustments on an older type camera before the photo is taken - with digital photography such adjustments are done after the photo is taken. It's a different matter when photoshopping is done by bringing two separate images together and someone's arm is missing!

Look how big his hands seem. And I like the hands on the window frame; that child has a "grip" on the portrait thing. OK - I am gushing. Nothing sillier than an old lady around cute children and animals.

^^^Not silly at all; I think everyone goes ga-ga over babies and animals. And when they're together, it's a major squee explosion!

What's worse than wearing the same dress as another woman at a wedding? Having the same outfit as the Duchess of Cambridge! Unlucky guest has identical clothes as Kate (but at least they both looked lovely!)-

What we are seeing is a repro of a picture in a newspaper (another repro) - we have not had access to the original.
You can see by just looking at the photo, this is the same appearance of a photo as the intial ones we got last year. What are seeing is a photo given to the press, it will look the same as it does in the paper as it will in person. Jason Bell seems to have a habit of making his photos purposely bad.

Apparently Catherine's eye colour changes.

I think too that George has more Middleton's genes that Windsor's one! But we'll see <3
That's a beautiful family portrait, the best so far IMO.
Do you think that it was already scheduled or was a move from the palace to "calm down" the bad voices caused by their few engagments and the vaction? I'm curious so I'm just asking

Already scheduled. The photo was taken mid March and was to be released for Mother's Day.

General News and Information for the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and Family

It is more of a tease for the tour than a makeup for a vacation. Someone needs to start knitting Lupo his own Lupo jumper

aw how cute is george with his george jumper! i love how they included lupo in the picture. pets are part of the family, and they should be in official pictures :) i believe this is the new trend after the WA + Maxima recently released a picture with their dog in it, F+M have before done so too, and haakon and MM as well, releasing a whole bunch of pictures with their dog's newborn puppies...

it will be great to see george during the tour, it's always so much nicer to see babies 'live' than in pictures as their real personality shows...

This official picture has nothing to do with the vacations and bad press. The picture was taken due to the family is about to embark on their official tour of Australia and New Zealand. I was expecting an official photo because they hadn't taken one for a trip since their 2011 Canadian tour. It's also nice that it was released in time for Mother's Day in the UK.

Happy Mother's Day to all Mother's in the UK.

Except for the fact that the Duke and duchess of Cambridge look like plastic mannequins, the photo is lovely!

George is such a cute baby, and Lupo just adds to the beauty of the warm family feeling.

Little George, (or not so little George), is a really handsome baby. And I always love when royal family pictures include dogs. Lupo looks very regal!

Photo is lovely and George is a very cute baby!
I've seen the article in " The Telegraph", there was a statement that George inherited Kate's brown eyes and William's blond hair. Isn't it a mistake?

As far as I know Kate has green eyes, and not brown.
