Can anyone confirm who these pictures were taken by and when? Because they've not featured in any of the British papers of magazines and there's been nothing on Twitter about her going out. George is heavily wrapped up, and Catherine doesn't look 9 months in those photos.

As far as I can see, photos were taken within the vicinity/close-ish up on a mobile phone. Whether or not Catherine was aware of the photos being taken is neither here nor there, she appears to carrying on her business either unaware or without concern enjoying time with George.

I am not saying that Kate called the paps to have these pictures taken but I am sure that she was aware of the photographer. In her position, she can almost be sure that somebody is around with a camera as soon as she leaves her own home. What else can she do than act normal.
The child in question could very easily have been looking at someone else. I think it's hard to say that Kate knew the photographer was there. She knows it's always a possibility but I doubt she was actively complicit.

For what it's worth, one of the royal photographers says the photos appear to be taken from a cell phone. So more than likely, they were taken by someone visiting the zoo and not by a pap.

As for when they were taken, it's hard to say. Kate and George have been seen at this zoo a few times in the last month or so. This is supposedly a favorite spot for them (William and George were seen there last week). In one of the photos you can tell she's pregnant, so I assume these photos were taken in the last few months.

IMO you can tell that George is more advanced than other toddlers his age by thinking about what they are saying compared to what he said in the story (this sound a bit odd, but I couldn't phrase it in a better way).

But, I do understand what you mean in that you can't tell much of the advancement of George's speech from this story - every child develops at their own pace, some may be slower than others and we of course haven't seen George speak on a regular basis.

A great post - I fully agree with you.

I think you are right, especially as these appear to be close ups and not long lens.

If it's a cell phone pic from somebody who was just there as a normal person, wouldn't most people just post it to Twitter or Facebook saying hey look who I saw instead of selling it to an Australian magazine that most people in England probably never heard off?

This same australian mag has posted pap pics of george and the cambridges numerous times. i'm not exactly sure why this time people are so convinced this was pr or a photoshoot set up by Kate. They had pics of george in the park with his nanny playing soccer. pics of the nanny walking george and pics of Kate walking george in the park. They also had pics of kate shopping while pregnant and going to the salon while pregnant with george. This is nothing new or sinister. lol

Tanna, the photographer who has often papped the royals (he took the photos of Harry and Cressida at the railway station returning from Melissa Percy's wedding) tweeted last night that he had taken a look at the photos of Kate and George and he believed that they were taken from a phone. If he's correct (and he does know about photography) then it wasn't a pap (unless it was a pap who was caught at that park without a phone!)

Because William has proved to be litigious about invasions of privacy whoever it was probably thought of foreign publications first and foremost. A woman's magazine in Australia would have easily come to mind.

The journalists at New Idea have had dealings with royals before and love printing stories about them. New Idea was the magazine that broke the story that Harry was in Afghanstan that caused his first tour there to be aborted.

Yes, most people would just post them on Facebook. But some would seek out a buyer on the internet. I can't imagine it's that hard to email a production department letting them know you have the photos - most publication websites have a link on the site for this purpose.

And whoever brought it up, I agree these are older photos, Kate does not look 9 months along and George is dressed for midwinter. So whoever sold the photos has spent quite some time seeking out a buyer.

I think Kate was aware - whether she was complicit - I have no idea. What I do know is, as I have mentioned before, with the internet and technology, the lines between public and press have blurred to the point where it is impossible to stop these invasions of privacy.

It wouldn't be shocking to see people with a phone or camera taking pictures at farm aimed for little kids to come and visit so some one taking picture may not of have gotten Kate's attention.

I can't believe Kate would not have been aware someone was photographing her and George. Even if she wasn't aware, surely her protection officers would have been on the lookout for such things and would have alerted her if they were so instructed. I reckon she's accepted that when she's at such public places, she will be photographed. If they're at some sort of zoo, there's an excellent chance that members of the public would have cameras with them because that's the sort of place that people take photographs, of the animals and of their children. So she'd have to accept being photographed as one of the risks of taking her child to such a place.

Why would she have to be aware the pictures are been taken? It's outside so a flash isn't needed a cell phone or digital camera can take a picture without making a sound.

Nothing sinister? Are you kidding? I don't consider a so called Magazine that has proven time and again they have no problem stalking a toddler just in order to make money something that isn't sinister nor is it something that is funny.

Once again I'll ask...Is there not a way for the Mods to put a thread up where pics like this can go and be posted in? So those of us who don't want to see them don't? Please?

We have no such thread for other royal families with young children, so the mods have decided previously that we won't be making special rules in this case.

Posters usually "warn" about these type of photos when they are posting them, stating they are "pap" photos. Which IMO makes it easy enough to avoid them.

He's still looking very much like William in some parts of his face.

I agree that they Re older photos from several months ago and that the seller, another patron go the zoo, sold them to the highest bidder, this awful Australian magazine. I also believe that this is not harmless, a gun instead of a phone could have been pulled out, where were the protection

There was, in fact, a forewarning about these pictures and one had to actively click on the link. I can't see that there was a problem here, people were warned and if they chose to look then it seems to me that they cannot complain.

There are a couple of photos in "New Idea" that haven't made it to the internet Lumutqueen, and in one of these the Duchess is side on, and looks very, very pregnant.

The article says it's a "spring outing", and that Prince George is twenty-one months old.

I don't think they were taken a while back and then just sat on. I think they are a week or so old at the most.

All the other children's faces are pixilated, (except for the sliding photo and the feeding the piglet photo).

The photo of George hugging one of the girls, with the other two girls next to them, was taken very close up, and is very clear.

I'm not suprised they have not yet - and may never be - printed in the UK.

Australia has had a lot of "no, no, no" photos published - the honeymoon, and the pregnant in Mustique photos for example.

(Not to mention the various European magazines that published the French villa photos.)

We even had the dress-fly up in the Blue Mts. photo published in the daily newspaper, and a double-page spread of the Duchess and baby George in the garden at Yarralumla photos in the paper.

None of these were printed in the UK I think.

Though it is a three page feature, the Duchess and Prince George didn't get the main cover shot - that went to Prince Harry.

I think that shows there is an interest here in Oz, but it's not that big a deal really.

(And little George is in the mags a fair bit - a few weeks ago we had photos and details of the local Sandringham school he is said to be going to start at.)
