We may be lucky and get to see footage during the period when the official photos were being taken as they did with Prince William. I think the Royal Family are pretty canny about how much exposure we are allowed - "always leave them wanting more".

Maybe some Americans are regretting the choice they made in 1776 of becoming a Republic.

Who would care about the christening of an Obama?

LOL, trust me there would be a lot of people interested in an Obama christening.

I don't regret our independence but I love the history we share with the British and the royals.

I hope not. I for one love our country being a republic.

There's people who deeply care about the Kardashians, that should tell you everything.

Seems like this topic has derailed a bit and before it crashes and the mods are left to clean up the mess, I'm gonna get back to the thoughts on the time of release of the pictures.

As we all know, the BRF is not a family of leisure by any means. My thoughts are that the photos are slated to be released at 10pm UK time because with the busy schedules of Great Granny, Grandpa and such and as the folks who would want to select which photos they like, it probably took time for them all to look at them and pick (such as Charles and Camilla pick the ones they liked best, the Middletons picked the ones they liked best and Great Granny looking them all over and giving the final say so on which ones are the best to be released to the public.

Anyhow, like the rest of us, I'm really looking forward to seeing the pictures that are released.

I hate the fact my country being a Republic. At least we have a non-reigning Imperial Family.

Lol The Kardashians? Seriously? This is terrible!

Do you really think HM has the final say about the pics? I think Will and Kate (Kate is probably the one who decides, we all know how marriages work, if momma isn't happy, no one is, ) pick the ones they want and then send them to everyone for their FYI.

Not to be rude but it look like you are from the Argentina not United State..

I will say while there are Americans who like or have an interest in Royalty and the Monarchy most wouldn't take their Independence back. Most are just fascinated by it or appreciate the history it shares with the British. and the media here tends to blur the lines between Royalty and Celebrities which is not right so there are the peoples who only look at them as celebs. The Royals are not celebrities.

The Kardashians are total fakes and wannabes, They think they are royalty but they are not. That whole family has no class. The Windsors have much more class then the Kardashians and most Hollywood Celebs under 35 (including Snooki, Kate Gosselin, Duggars, etc)

I am actually probably one of the very few who wouldn't mind having the British Monarch as our Head of state even so they are pretty much powerless now and The recent Government shutdown proves my point even more.

I would imagine that as the pictures are kind of deemed "historical", Will and Kate out of respect may ask HM for her approval. I also think that HM loves and respects Will and Kate enough to go with whatever they did choose. It just may be one of them quirky things they do as a tradition and how they show respect.

I think everyone went crazy over those chubby cheeks on CNN. It's like you just want to squeeze and kiss up those Taffy Apple cheeks that George have.
