Catherine did a good job with the photos. My favourite is the one of George kissing Charlotte. I read once that she's interested in photography (there are photos on the internet taken by her of the scenery on one of their tours, IIRC) so I guess she used a professional camera to take them.

As for now, I think Charlotte looks more like the Windsors, but George looks more like Catherine (particularly Catherine in this photo). Of course we're still at the very early stages and Charlotte could "change" who she resembles.

EDIT: Regarding Charlotte and blue eyes, aren't all babies born with blue eyes? I'm sure I heard that somewhere once, though it could be one of those popular myths.
I'm glad you posted that picture of Kate when she was young, because I was thinking of that exact picture when I saw these new pictures, especially the one in which George has his mouth a little bit open - the facial expression seems so similar to me.

As for all babies having blue eyes, I've always heard the same thing (and, in fact, had just asked my mother about it and was somehow surprised to find that, yes, my eyes were indeed blue when I was born). Based on a quick google search, it seems that most Caucasian babies are indeed born with eyes that are some shade of blue or gray.

I do think George takes after the Middletons, however, I think his smile is definitely from his Daddy. What an adorable little boy. Charlotte is cute, but then all babies are cute so we shall have to wait awhile to see who she takes after. In any event they are lovely children.

It looks like KP has managed to annoy some reporters tonight. Richard from the Express seems to have taken issue with the fact the picture was released on a U.S. based social media site.


My opinion is, who cares? We got pictures and the press got a story.

Very cute photos!
They remind me of the photos of the Danish twins' first official photos.

My eldest had blue eyes when he was born, but my youngest had dark brown. The whole blue eye at birth thing is a myth

I actually unfollowed Richard on Twitter a while ago solely because he complains so much about this kind of thing. I find royal reporters to be a particularly whiny bunch, though I'm sure it's not without (some occasional) justification. However, when it comes to complaining about the embargoes, I would think that they would be used to that now, because the internet/social media makes embargoes harder to enforce. As you said, they still have the pictures, and there's still going to be interest, no matter who posted the pictures first.

His paper is almost out of business. Its either being broken up or sold to the Mirror Group. The day of the newspaper as the main source of news and information is long over.

I also assume the Express is cancelling their own Twitter account and using some form of smoke signal. Can't be caught using 'U.S. based social media'

Do you mean Caucasian? If so, most of them are, but not all. I'm a Caucasian and I was born with brown eyes, I have the pictures who prove that. I've also seen lots of new borns who were born with brown eyes, but maybe it's the place where we belong? I live in Southern Europe, being blonde with blues eyes is not that common. We are more of brunette with brown eyes.

I always thought it was the Native Americans of yore that employed the use of smoke signals primarily. At least that's where I heard of it the most. Wouldn't that be another form of "US based social media"?

But seriously, the pictures were set up to be released by all the media at the same precise time and Twitter only got 1 of them first.

Someone should hand Richard some cheese to go with his whine.

Richard Palmer always takes a swipe at certain royals. He has admitted in the past that the only two royals he likes are Camilla and Harry to a lesser extent . He tends to favorite a lot of mean-spirited tweets too. Most royal reporters are heavily biased. That's why I like that the royals are starting to use social media more frequently, they can bypass the media spin and 'color commentary'. I hope all official photos of George and Charlotte are released this way.

Lovely photos. George and Charlotte are just beautiful babies. It was great that they decided to release some photos before the christening. Now, July 5 won't seem so far away.

Princess Charlotte and Prince George Portraits: All Photos : People.com

The order of the photos look like they were taken from the bottom to the top.

With Charlotte, looking at her mother, questioning the wisdom of the set up.

The second from the top, George looks exactly like William.

Clearly an 'official' staged photograph session as the kids are dressed up,
I was hoping for candid pictures of natural interaction between the children.

The photographs themselves are nice and Catherine did a great job.

George is the most beautiful little boy imaginable, his resemblance to William as a toddler is striking.

The photos are simply perfect, I love them all!

I for one love the outfits on the children. I know many in other articles think they are too old fashioned. I think really nice and much better than having them dressed in items with sport or Disney characters all over them. This was quasi formal. Fun and playtime will be when more casual clothes will be seen. Plus, I am sure that both parents approve of the outfits and that is why they are worn. They are beautiful children and hopefully will have an enjoyable life with loving parents.

I like Richard Palmer. I just think the British royal correspondents are very picky when it comes to the royals and their press office.

I think both children are lovely. George resembles a brown-eyed William at the same age, but also Mike Middleton somehow, (shape of the face, perhaps?) Charlotte's eye colour may stay blue, who knows. At two weeks or so it's hard to tell which parent she resembles. Her little white jumper is gorgeous.
The photo of George kissing his baby sister is especially cute. With under two years between them they will be close, I'm sure.

Both children are lovely, and the picture with George kissing his sister is particularly charming. Catherine is a good photographer.

I find it interesting that they didn't release any photos of the whole family. I'm not complaining, but I think it confirms my impression that William and Catherine do not want to be in the spotlight.
