I don't see how the pic of Charlotte with Kate puts her in a bad light.

I think they meant literally bad light....the overexposed flash.

Princess Charlotte's baptism: read the Archbishop's homily

It is curious that the Archbishop of Canterbury referred to Grand Duchess Elizabeth Feodorovna (now a saint in the Russian Orthodox Church) as one of Princess Charlotte's "ancestors" when Princess Charlotte, as far as I know, does not descend from the Grand Duchess.

She's related to her via Prince Phillip. His grandmother was Elizabeth's sister. Come to think of it, Queen Elizabeth was related to her too, though less directly. For sure via Queen Victoria.

I'm surprised and impressed that was brought up. Very nice.

If I made u think I was saying the RF was bigoted that is my mistake. What I meant is if Cate or William used the much better Danish photographers the media would drag them over the coals for being un British.
I also think there are good British photographers and painters out there thry just aren't being utilized. I remember when Kate's atrocious self portrait came out and there were a lot of comparisons with the work of other painters and they did much better than the official one.
Also Kate's pictures of her babies were some of the best I have ever seen.

They are a lovely family but count me as one of the people who is disappointed with the quality of the photos. Even the best photographer can have a bad day or bad luck with the lighting.


Regardless, the whole family looks proud and happy, which is the important thing.

Knitters have recreated Princess Charlotte's christening in wool as part of a church fundraising festival.

The replica royal event is at St Peter and St Paul's church in Norfolk - one of six churches taking part in a Blossom and Yarn Festival.

Over 11,000 squares were used to create themed scenes for the six churches.

Grand Duchess Elizabeth's mother was Princess Alice daughter of Victoria and Albert. Elizabeth's sister Victoria Marchioness of Milford Haven is Prince Philip's maternal grandmother. Another sister was Alix the Russian Empress.

Sorry, I cannot help you! Just read the response below my post... I think it could give you an explanation!

I like this photo a lot. George is a hoot. Catherine looks more relaxed.
