Squee! How about those cheeks and the big boy pose atop the pile of ?books?painted blocks?. Wow, can you see the family resemblance!
The POW looks about to burst with glee! Too cute.
But I do think if foul that the DM cropped the photo. 4 Generations edited to suit their agenda.
And I love Daddy holding his little hand.

William is probably holding his hand to keep him from bolting after a corgi. 😉

What a wonderful photograph of a beloved monarch and the legacy that will continue through three generations after her.

I, also, thought it was quite rude for publications to be splitting heirs to suit their own headlines and agendas. The photo was taken to signify continuity in the monarchy and by cropping the picture, I believe the photo has lost its intended meaning.

Very nice generational picture. I like that the focus is on the heirs to the throne. Although, I thought Charlotte was going to be included.

HELLO wrote that Annie Leibovitz took shots of the Queen, George and Charlotte at Windsor Castle on Easter Monday, but this photo is taken in the White Drawing Room at Buckingham Palace.

William's ''bollocking'' from Queen
Quote:
In the programme, William - who has previously spoken in glowing terms about the Queen and her benign influence on the whole family - credited her with helping him through the loss of his mother, Diana Princess of Wales, saying she has been a powerful female influence in his life.

He also highlighted his grandmother had been "incredibly supportive" of him and been someone for him to look up to.

He said: "She's been a very strong female influence and having lost my mother at a young age, it's been particularly important to me that I've had somebody like the Queen to look up to and who's been there and who has understood some of the more, um, complex issues when you lose a loved one...

"So she's been incredibly supportive and I've really appreciated her guidance."

The documentary will be shown on Sky News at 9pm on Wednesday.
The fascinating story behind Prince George's first stamp*
Quote:
Ranald Mackechnie, who has not even told his wife he took the picture, said: “He was absolutely charming, as you can see from the picture. You only have a short window of opportunity with small children, but Prince George was on good form and everyone seemed to enjoy seeing him enjoy the day.

The photograph was taken in the summer of last year, and Mr Mackechnie signed a confidentiality agreement that meant he could not even tell his wife he had been to Buckingham Palace.

“She still doesn’t know,” he said yesterday. “She will only find out when this is made public. I stuck to the John le Carre theory that if you tell one person, you’ve told everyone.”

The Queen, Prince Charles, William and George pose for new postage stamp | Daily Mail Online
Quote:
Perched proudly on a pile of foam blocks, but holding Daddy's hand just in case, Prince George poses for his very first postage stamp alongside his father, his grandfather – and the great-grandmother whose face has appeared on more stamps than anyone in history.

Ahead of the Queen's 90th birthday tomorrow, the Royal Mail has released this historic image.

It is the scene on a new sheet of four commemorative First Class stamps.
Prince William recalls day Queen gave him a right royal telling off | Daily Mail Online
Quote:
He said: 'We were chasing Zara around who was on a go-cart, and Peter and I managed to herd Zara into a lamppost and the lamppost came down and nearly squashed her and I remember my grandmother being the first person out at Balmoral running across the lawn in her kilt.

'She came charging over and gave us the most almighty bollocking, and that sort of stuck in my mind from that moment on.'

So this photosession was done in the summer of 2015. George has already grown and his face has changed a little since these were taken.

If the HELLO rumors about Annie Leibovitz taking photos of the Queen, George and Charlotte at Windsor Castle are true? Then I think the palace will release them tomorrow night.

When I first saw the photo and was thinking it was one of the Annie Leibovitz, one of the first things I thought was -did Kate by this George outfit in multiple sizes?

Watch A Special Programme On Queen's 90th Birthday Tonight On Sky News

William 'Looked Up To Queen' After Diana Died
Quote:
Prince William has spoken of the incredible support he received from the Queen in the years following the death of his mother, Princess Diana.

Speaking to Sky News as the family prepares to celebrate Her Majesty's 90th birthday, the Duke of Cambridge said his grandmother had been a "strong female influence" to him - especially during his teenage years.

"Having lost my mother at a very young age, it has been particularly important for me that I had somebody like the Queen to look up to and who has been there and has understood some of the more complex issues when you lose a loved one," he said.

Prince William was 15 when his mother was killed in a car crash in Paris - and following her death in 1997, the Queen and the Duke of Edinburgh were heavily criticised for staying in Balmoral with William and Harry rather than immediately returning to Buckingham Palace.

It is an aspect of his relationship with his grandmother that he has rarely spoken about publicly.
Our caring Queen.

Important message for those who always criticizes William:
Quote:
Despite recent criticism in the newspapers for trying to balance his royal duties, family life and his job as an air ambulance pilot, he insists he has his grandmother's backing.

"Surprisingly, she is very supportive of what I'm doing at the moment - she understands that I'm a family man and I want to be around for my children as much as I can," he said.

"She's very much at the helm, the Queen, she's incredibly active and her schedule's packed. My father is very active, charitably and otherwise - and there's me, Harry, Catherine and everyone else so there's a time and a place for taking on more and more responsibilities."

The Duke of Cambridge added he is looking forward to stepping up his royal duties in the future, but for now is concentrating on his children and his "incredibly worthwhile and meaningful job" serving the community with the air ambulance service.

Prince William said these commitments, combined with serving the Queen as and when required, was a "good balance".

The Queen and the Duke of Edinburgh will carry out public engagements today in Windsor ahead of her actual birthday tomorrow. Her official birthday will be celebrated in June.

A special programme, The Queen At 90, is on Sky News at 9pm tonight - with live coverage throughout Thursday.
Really looking forward to seeing this documentary.

And a movingly video by our beloved monarch with better photos than the telegraph video:

First off...The Portrait & Stamps are gorgeous!! The look in George's eyes though. Boy, do I pity his future Teachers...There's mischief just shining there.

Second...The story about those two chasing Zara & what happened...I would have given them a Royal (literally in this case) telling off too. Honestly, the stuff kids get up to, I'm amazed any of us make it considering some of the dumb things all of us have done in our past.

Unless they're meant for Charlotte's 1st Birthday picture. Not that I can see that considering George's, but maybe? Just something I've been pondering. :)

I don't think you call in Annie Leibovitz in for Charlotte's 1st birthday pictures. Kate could have easily take Charlotte and Gan Gan pictures. George's 1st birthday pictures were done by the PA photographer who did the recent ski trip photos.

It's middle of the night here, but I'm watching the US election thing. Haven't people here seen the important message for those who always criticizes William.
