Prince George Photos: First Official Pictures
The Duchess of Cambridge's father, Michael Middleton, has taken the first official photographs of William, Kate and their son Prince George.
The two pictures from the new Cambridge family album were taken by the young prince's grandfather in the back garden of the Middleton family home in Bucklebury, Kensington Palace confirmed.
Taken in "early August", the first photograph is a simple parents and child shot.
The couple, back-lit by the sun, are standing in the gardens of the Berkshire home with Kate cradling her two-week-old son.
In the second, William and Kate can be seen sitting on a rug, also in the garden.
Kate continues to hold Prince George, but they are this time joined by their cocker spaniel, Lupo, and the Middletons' retriever, Tilly.
Sky News understands the two photos were selected from a larger collection taken while the Duke of Cambridge was on paternity leave.
For their official engagement and wedding photographs, the Royal couple opted for well-known celebrity photographers Mario Testino and Hugo Bernand.
Asking Mr Middleton to take the photos is yet another example of the Duke and Duchess choosing to do things their way throughout their marriage.
The Duchess of Cambridge and Prince George are thought to have joined Prince William in Anglesey in recent days.
The couple will next be seen together in public on September 12 for an awards dinner hosted by conservation charity Tusk Trust.
In his first interview since he became a father, William said his young son reminded him of himself or Prince Harry.
The Duke told CNN: "He's a little bit of a rascal, I'll put it that way.
"He either reminds me of my brother or me when I was younger, I'm not sure, but he's doing very well at the moment."
