I know some posters here were not happy with the "invasion" of privacy of these - and it was before the day off in Canberra photos, and the Blue Mts wind vs dress photos, maybe even before the Saturday night footy photos, and so no-one knew what was yet to come out.

I just flipped through a "New Idea" magazine from May at the hairdresser, and another set of photos from this Easter Sunday on the lawn were sold exclusively to this magazine and published by them - photos from a different angle with the Duke photographing PG on his crawl.

Shock! Shock! though - this "private" occasion wasn't just witnessed by Nanny and bodyguards - one of this other set of photos shows twelve people standing along the Admiralty House verandah watching William, Kate and George!

And all very well-dressed too. Maybe there was a lunch together - or was this when the Duke did the investiture?

In any case, not really a private moment for just the little family to enjoy.
And honestly - those are my favorite photos of the family. I found them so very heartwarming and honest. So I am glad to know that it actually was a photo op, just not at the angle from which I originally saw it.

It doesn't mean it was a photo op. William and Kate plus several members of their staff plus the Aussie GG and his wife were at the Easter Sunday church service. They get back to the govt house in Sydney and Nanny Maria could just had George on the lawn because the weather was nice so they join him outside. The paps take a photo with a long lens. Its in the magazine.

There are always RPOs lurking around when the royals are outside. They are never going to be alone while outside.

Wow, George must have a big library by now :P I also wonder if/when we will see the jewelry Catherine got. I saw at least 2 opal brooches on the list!

EDIT: Oopsie, wrong thread! Can someone move this to the Australia/New Zealand thread... (Without the quote if possible)

This article is old of course, but some of the photos are lovely. I don't know whether this has already been posted. Apologies if it has. Just found it this afternoon.

Thank you for this Curryong - the "Daily Mail/Mail Online" can't be beat for good photos and lots of them.

I remember the yellow dress the Duchess is wearing as being hinted as something she designed herself, that the Royal seamstresses then ran up.

I live just across from where the Royal party were staying at Admiralty House and saw the TV helicopter hovering through my window as they broadcast the Duke and Duchess getting ready to go to Taronga Zoo.

There was much discussion as to whether little Prince George would attend this event or not and that we would have to wait and see if he actually turned up.

I don't know what the security guy's brief was, but just as Catherine was popping George into his car seat, this large young man stood in front of the open car door looking up at the helicopter - this was what we saw on the telly - blocking the view of the little Prince being stapped in.

Seems so silly - then and now - considering what we saw of PG just a short time later at the bilby enclosure.

Thank you for rediscovering it Curryong. Too bad the video stops right before my favorite moment. George flings away the stuffed bilby because he knows the real ones are just within reach.

That's... awesome. Made my day. Loved Will and Kate with the giraffes, and at the bird show. And of course, I love the family pictures.

As the Spring Racing Season is about to begin here in Australia, today's issue of "Style" is covering race-wear.

Milliner Jonathan Howard has been interviewed, and lets readers in on how the Duchess of Cambridge came to wear a design of his when she attended the Anzac Day ceremonies at the Australian War Memorial in Canberra.

(You may remember it - small, dark blue, with two "wings" flying upwards off the back.)

He says that he had a young intern working with him at the time - and that intern's mother and father were working at Kensington Palace.

A nice photo of Catherine wearing the hat is amongst others accompanying the article.
