There are pics of HM holding Andrew and Edward here:

A quick google of "The Queen holding her children" will turn up others, too, but not many.

There is, on the other hand , a photo of the Queen Mother holding William at his Christening which was very much appreciated at the time for the significance of 4 generations in the same picture.

Very stupid, indeed! Why should James shave the beard he loves just for his nephew's christening? It would be ridiculous. Sometimes I think some people have to have SOMETHING to complain about in any situation.

So true. The complaint of men not shaving for big events seems to come up every time a royal (or related) man shows up to an event with any sort of facial hair. There seems to be this idea that they must be slobs or lazy (or both) if they don't shave; it can't be that they're deliberately growing out their facial hair because they like it.

Thank you! I knew, of course, that pictures had to exist but couldn't remember seeing them. This is greatly appreciated.

It was Joe Little of Majesty magazine Ish. If it were anyone else, I'd wonder too, but coming from him, it gives it far more legitimacy IMO.

Via Twitter 42 Minutes ago: @theroyaleditor: 2 more official Prince George photographs set to be released for UK Sunday newspapers. Perhaps The Queen will be holding the baby in them?

Look like the Journalist reporting this work for the London Evening Standard

Awesome, thank you.

I don't know if we should expect a picture of the Queen holding George, but I would like to see one that includes the godparents

Super photos! It's so nice to see Prince George as he is an extremely handsome baby - I bet he can screem the place down when he's tired or wants feeding!

I'm looking forward to seeing the additional pictures on Sunday and think they will be just as good as these whatever the pose/composition will be.

With regard to James's beard, it suits him so well! With regard to one or two comments suggesting he ought to have shaved it off for the Christening, I do wonder if people are living on another planet - what would Prince Michael of Kent think if it was suggested he should shave his beard off at every family event?!

Yeah, he is now, but I noticed that Windsors don't have attractive appearance. And young princes Charles, Edward, Andrew, even William and Harry were much more handsome than in adulthood. Maybe it's better for little George to look like Middletons.

I am very much disappointed with the Queen not holding George. A very emotional connection (atleast for those seeing the photo) has been removed. They would have done it due to a strong reason..Maybe it was already nearing the end..the baby must have started getting fussing..and that would spoil the total pic..So it was better for Will to remain holding him.
That must be the only sensible reason IMO..

For the pictures on Sunday (I hope this is true) I would really like another photo of George, Catherine and William and a photo with the godparents + parents or a photo of the Queen holding George (however this is also possible for the New Years Speech)...

I loved the handbag too! Can't you just see her tucking it there out of the way!

I was expecting this. She never, with the exception of Peter Philips (and that photo was not taken at his christening), was photographed holding one of her grandchildren.
The Queen Mother was pictured holding both William, Harry and Charles.
Even dignified Queen Mary was photographed holding Charles and Anne at their christening, not to mention Queen Victoria at the famous 4-generation pic....
Well, the current Queen has, for whatever reasons, her strict principles (the same goes with her refusal to attend important foreign royal events) which are even for me, a staunch supporter of HM since my childhood, hard to understand! Little gestures without any great efforts could make a huge symbolic impact.
I also think it would have not been too big of a strain for the Cambridges to appear for 2 minutes in front of the palace doors after the christening to show some respect to the many faithful admires who waited for so many hours, some even with gifts! Many regard this (to make a little impact as possible) as a "modernisation of the monarchy" - I fail to see what´s "modern" about this...

I absolutely agree! Like in the late 19th century (then even more than today) beards are fashionable with younger men - and that´s the case again since at least 7 to 10 years! In the 1980s and 90s beards or moustaches had been completely abondened (at least for young, up to date guys). But they experienced a great comeback, thanks to popular sportsmen or hollywood stars.
Okay, James Middleton is not the "beard type" and I also prefered the look he sportet at his sisters wedding, but hey, it´s his business, isn´t it?
In my opinion many men look rather better with a beard other than without it (Carl Philip of Sweden, Félipe of Spain, Pr. William King Philippe to name a few come to my mind here) and a properly cut beard is just terrific and causes even more efforts to look clean than just shave in the morning...!

You are right, I was dissappointed as well, it would have been a lovely gesture, both by the Queen Holding the Great-grandchild, as well as from the Cambridges

Not Harry... To me Harry is better looking now than when he was younger. With the others you're absolutely right.

William was pretty hot when he went to St Andrews but he started losing his hair. Hopefully, George got Kate and Grandpa Mike's hair. It looks like he has based on the photos.
