Nice pic, but so disappointed they didn't recreate the Queen Victoria picture with the Queen holding George. It's an opportunity missed I feel.

Very important choice someone that can give George a personal insight into who his Grandmother Diana was as a person and friend.
I think this was a really clever choice on Will and Kates part because it also gives connection to the philanthropic aspects to the role of being royal with the charity link as well as Diana.

#royal Interestingly there are no snaps with Godparents released to the press - Duke and Duchess' decision no doubt

Very nice Photos. Well one to Jason Bell.

I was hoping that in the Four Generation Photos that the Queen would be holding Prince George like Queen Victoria holding Prince Edward (Later Edward VIII) but it is still a nice photo of The Queen and her Three Heirs and it a historical.

Well that's lovely, especially the group photos but i'm sorry to say that there's something quite weird about Catherine's face ...

I LOVED the one of William, Kate and George, but am a little disappointed with the other pictures. I was hoping for something a little warmer, or closer or maybe seeing HM holding George, just didn't seem to be as good as I hyped it with myself. JMHO

Love the photos. Surprised there wasn't one of the godparents.

As the godparents are personal friends rather than royals etc maybe they are taking the view that the godparents are there to guide him through the private aspect of his life not the public and so have kept that photo for themselves. These photos are more in keeping with his future public role.

I particularly liked the photo of William, Kate and George as George has such a wonderful expression in that one.

Agree. Maybe one day we will get a photo of The Queen holding Prince George like Queen Victoria holing Prince Edward. definitely a missed opportunity.

I would have loved a shot of William, Catherine, George and the godparents as well. I presume they had one taken but didn't release it (I can't believe they wouldn't have a picture taken with the godparents - even I had a picture taken with my godparents back in the day).

She does look odd. I don't know if she's actually been photoshopped, it might just be a bad pose - at least in the one of William, George and her. In the one with the BRF, I'm thinking it might be the lightening that makes her look way too bright.

There probably is a picture with the Queen holding the baby, but they didn't release it for whatever reason. My favorite is William, Catherine and George. George's expression with his hands in the air is priceless. I also like the picture of both families. Interesting that the picture with the godparents wasn't released.

I agree it's one of those ones that I think they could have kept as a private photo. It looks a bit out of place as a formal portrait. Also I can't believe one with the Godparents wasn't released, surley that's one that everyone wants to see in any set of christenting pictures.Very odd.

A bit disappointed that HM isn't holding little George but beautiful pictures nonetheless. Love the family pic with George holding his arms up. Is it legal to be that cute ? 😉

Im sure they have the full gamut of photos with everyone but I guess these are the official ones. Will and Kate seem to go to great lengths to preserve their privacy where ever they can.
There will be plenty of time when he is King that William and his family will be in full exposure to the media and public.
Privacy is their most precious commodity and they seem hell bent on protecting it and really who can blame them, Im pretty certain Id do the same if I was in their shoes.

Seeing him on the pictures from yesterday, I could have sworn that he was the image of William as a baby, only with Catherine's chipmunk cheeks But on these pictures he bears a remarkable resemblance to Catherine as a baby. He's a good mix, that one.

I am sure they have one of the Queen holding Prince George and I think we will see one someday. They could be saving it for The Queen Christmas Speech.
