The first time I heard the Charles as George VII was back in the 60s - my Year 5 teacher discussed it with us and why it was possible. It was relevant then because he had only just left Geelong Grammar to return to the UK after his two terms at school downunder.

It has reemerged many times since in many different papers etc but has never been confirmed as having ever been said by Charles.

I see. Those to whom he's allegedly suggested this while visiting Australia are all wrong then?

He may well change his mind, of course, and I hope that he does, but it's far from being a rumour in the various realms.

More: those whom I know who believe it wouldn't have a clue what the Daily Mail was/is.

Polly, do you have a source? With quotes?

Official baby photos

Does anyone know who has got the rights to the first official baby photos, have heard rumours it is OK and when they will take them and publish them.

I doubt they'll give the rights to one specific magazine like celebrities. The pictures are most likely to be released to everyone the same time.

I wouldn't say that this idea has definitely never crossed Charles' lips but its also not a fact that is known to be written in stone when Charles does become King.

From the past several posts, I've gleaned that the remarks were perhaps said and heard while Charles was at school in Australia. At that age, Charles probably remembered his grandfather George VI very well, knew of the love and admiration the entire family had for him and had watched his own mother become Queen at such a young age. Like Prince William is to have said he'd give his mother back her HRH when he becomes King (which we know most likely will never happen), Charles, as a teenager, probably felt he'd take the name George VII as King in memory of his grandfather.

As the years passed and Charles developed a wonderful role for himself as Prince of Wales, watched his mother reign as Queen for over 61 years now, I would suggest that Charles has found his own identity and will continue to be known as Charles through his own reign.

This is precisely why I am so happy that the wee Prince George of Cambridge wasn't named in honor or after someone already making a mark on the Monarchy, but a name of his own (with historical relevance) to forge the trail ahead with and create his own special unique mark on the world. He sure has a wealth of wonderful individuals to learn from.

It is to my delight that I discovered today, Prince George of Cambridge will become King of England with Jewish ancestry.
Sorry if this has already been posted.

The rights to the official photos will surely remain either with the royal family or the photographer (who may well pass the rights on to the royal family). I can think of no conceivable reason why OK! magazine would be granted rights to anything remotely related to royalty (unless said royal was untitled, hard up and about to get married thus needed the money, in which case they ought not be catagorised as royalty at all!)

they royal familyy will own the rights e.g. the copyright and the right to sell them but I was under the impression they sold official ones to one media outlet to publish. The betting sites have had bets for which magazine/paper will get to publish them and I was wondering when they will come out

I doubt they'll sell any rights to photographs and if they do, they'll donate the proceeds to charity. Otherwise, that makes them look bad.

It's not like with a celebrity baby where the rights are sold to the highest bidder. They will be released at the same time and be used by everyone. I thought that one of the royal reporters said it would be mini photoshoot with chosen photographers?

I hope (and expect) we'll get to see a four generations photo, similar to what Victoria did!

Back when Charles was a teenager, it probably didn't even cross his mind he would still be waiting at 65 to become King. I think it would be too hard to change his name the Queen who is very healthy could live to 100 which would make Charles about 80 when he get's to the throne there hardly seems a point in changing his name to George. Now with a Grandson called George to me it seems even less likely. Charles has done a lot of good things as Charles he should be proud of that.

Yes, I think that's quite correct - no single magazine or publication will have rights over others.

I shouldn't imagine we will see any photos for a least a month - but we have been surprised already with the name announcement so quickly, so who knows?!

I don't know if any one already mentioned it, but it is interesting that prince Williams cousins on princess Diana's side names are also George, Alexander and Louism

Now there's a "co-incidence"
Well spotted!

We may not get the four generations until his Christening. The Queen is in Scotland for at least 8 weeks as is Prince Phillip. The first pictures are usually of baby and mum and dad. I expect them to be pretty casual like the engagement photos. I'm not expecting to see little George in a flowerpot although that is cute they probably won't do that. LOL

I wonder where that photo of Victoria with her heirs was taken because if it was taken at Balmoral I wouldn't be surprised to find that this one is taken there as well - with a similar, if not the same background.

The Queen is very aware of things like this and I am sure she would like to re-create it for herself and her heirs.

He will also be a King with Indian ancestry. For that matter, even his father is.
BTW I would have preferred George as one of the middle names and Alexander as the first name. Anyway, its a name chosen by his parents, so its always good..
