Royal baby family portrait delayed as Prince Philip is too ill to pose for picture with William, Kate and George:

I think we already knew the christening will most likely take place a little later.

Let's hope the couple will visit Philip at Sandringham with the baby and not wait till October as the article claims if he's still in poor health. At this stage of the game, I think Philip meeting George sooner rather than later is a wiser course of action, irregardless of when the christening takes place.

I think this is a nonsense. William only has 2 weeks off and we all know that the Queen was going to Scotland. And it is obvious that William's paternity leave and the DoE going to Scotland do not coincide.

The BRF has never, to my knowledge, but the family together for a photo op. The norm is to do it when the christening takes place.

Load of old toot!

Is just me or these stories about them taking the baby to Diana's grave seem a bit creepy?

If it's true, I don't see anything creepy about it if William feels a closer connection to Diana there. I personally don't visit cemeteries that often, but my husband visits his mother's grave on a regular basis. Everyone is different.

Very creepy IMO and I don't believe a word of it.

Yes it is, taking a newborn to a grave site seems to be inviting bad karma for said baby. After the death of the Jacinth Saldanha, there is already enough negativity surrounding George and his birth.

Personally, I don't believe that the press would ever have been given the information of this nature. If/when William and family do decide to go to Althorp and spend time there remembering his mother, I would almost guarantee it would be a very private occasion.

As far as taking baby George there, I think William has enough brains to realize that a visit such as this would be more beneficial if/when the child is actually old enough to understand and appreciate the visit.

I'm not disagreeing that the media is just speculating. I do not believe William would discuss this with anyone who would talk to the media, so the media is just looking for a "Diana angle" to sell newspapers

However, my husband did take our 3 month old baby to his mother's grave. It wasn't for the baby's sake, it was for my husband's. He takes comfort in visiting her grave and he used to take our small children occasionally, even though she has been dead more than 20 years. My teenaged daughter still goes with him sometimes. I don't see anything wrong with it.

It is macabre for the press to be talking about visits to Diana's grave when the baby isn't even a week old. And I absolutely agree that if William does take George to the site, it would be when he's older and more cognizant of the purpose for the trip.

That doesn't necessarily have to be the case. My cousins wife died giving birth at 25 weeks and every yr around the holidays he takes his daughter to her moms grave to lay flowers..(the baby was born in 2009 and they bring flowers every yr)...So really in that type of situation its up to the parents..william will take his son to visit diana's grave when he is good and ready to do so...I just hope people who live around there and media would respect that situation when it does happen.

Picture the scene - William and George in a rowing boat crossing to the island to see Diana's grave!

Truly, I don't think so.

^^^I had thoughts of that myself; George would need a custom-made life jacket to fit his tiny body!

Interesting. I remember that after Robert F. (Bobby) Kennedy was assassinated, Ethel gave birth to a baby girl and she took the baby (Rory) to visit RFK's grave. That did not seem creepy. Not sure why this is different.

The difference to me is that Diana has been dead for almost 17 years . George is a week old. I don't believe the story at all. I sure that William has held his son in his arms and told his mother about him without physically going to her grave.
