I don't understand the complaints about closeups of the baby. I can see his face perfectly well, even though his eyes are closed.

He is simply beautiful, and he is only 1 month old. There will be lots of photos of him awake later.

I think it was very generous of the Cambridges to release these photos.

I guess people are disappointed that these photos look similar to the ones of him leaving the hospital. Only head visible and wrapped in a blanket. But he is still quite young and that they took the pix outside they may not want to expose him too much to the weather. These photos seem both formal and informal, especially the ones of them sitting.
Can we stop taking about what people are disappointed about and discuss William cop'n a feel on his wife? HAHAHA
Lol. I didn't even notice William's hand.

Totally agree.

Male pattern baldness comes from the mothers family much of the time.

As far as George being wrapped up like a little burrito, it could be that swaddling him was the only way to keep him calm. I had one friend that swaddled her son quite a lot because he was most comforted that way. My niece, on the other hand, wanted no part of that! It was hilarious the way my sister would get her all wrapped up and ten seconds later she was stretching out and moving her arms and legs like she knew she wasn't in a tiny space anymore and she needed the room!

I love that the photos aren't professional and are taken by Kate's dad. Much sweeter that way and more comfortable for the new family. Especially Lupo! He's just hangin' out and having a good time.

Actually according to the report these photos were taken in very early August so he was prob only 2-3 weeks

Am I the only one who finds babies boring until they hit six months or so and start smiling? I'm glad we got new pictures, but all newborns look the same to me.

Okay, thanks ghost_night554! I can't get over how radiant Kate looks. And I love Lupo's smile!

Sometimes I wish she would do something different with her hair.

All newborns look the same to me too. That's why I'm more interested in seeing what he looks like in a few months...when he has a bit more personality and his features are more defined.

William said he likes to wiggle, perhaps they wrapped him up so he would keep still.

So glad I'm not the only one! I'm always amused when celebrities insist on keeping their newborns hidden from view, because one newborn baby looks just like another to me. No way could you base a kidnap plan on a photo of a newborn because it's impossible to tell one from another unless they are lined up together, and even then it would be hard. They don't start to look distinctive for at least six months.

I agree that newborns look quite similar but I disagree that it takes 6 months for them to look distinctive. I'd say 2 months and they're looking pretty distinctive.

You could be right. They still all look much alike to me for some time. I'm not particularly interested in babies.

Thot this was interesting

but the palace was keen to stress that, although the choice of Mr Middleton to take the photographs broke with tradition, the couple and their infant will also be posing for press photographers in the near future.
It came from the Express

Get over it.
Excuse me!?! You don't care for what I said, fine, but you yourself just proved the point I was making about smug arrogance on an epidemic rise due to the cover of the Internet more than anything I could have said or done. Also to see the direction this thread has gone since just after George's birth is scary and sad. Instead of celebrating the birth of this lil guy, we've had to wade through various immature and downright stupid "arguments" made by those only intent seems to be to stir things up.

The simple fact Zonk has come in and started postings w/"I can't believe I have to say this on this thread/I can't believe what I'm reading on this thread..." Over the last month also proves my point. Then for those responsible for trying to stir things up to then turn around and spout off they didn't really mean anything by it... Do you really think the majority of us are *that* stupid? Not only are we not, but also sick and tired of it.

Oh and one last suggestion? Grow up!!
