First official picture of George
The first official photos of Prince George have been released - and, cradled in his mother's arms, he appears as if he does not have a care in the world.
Lying peacefully in the arms of the Duchess of Cambridge, the newborn, who is third in line to the throne, seems to be sleeping, oblivious to what is going on around him or the duties that will one day be expected of him.
The Duke of Cambridge stands to the left of his wife in both photographs, looking on proudly with a protective arm around Kate.
The intimate pictures were taken by Kate's father Michael Middleton in a shady spot of the garden of the family home in Bucklebury, Berkshire, earlier this month.
Kate, wearing a long maroon dress and with her long hair in waves over her shoulders and William in jeans and a blue gingham shirt with the top buttons undone, are both smiling directly into the camera.
Wrapped in a white blanket similar to the one he was in when he was brought out of St Mary's Hospital in Paddington, central London, the day after he was born, the only part of George that can be seen is his head, which is crowned by a soft layer of hair.
In one of the photos, the royal couple are joined by their black cocker spaniel Lupo while Tilly, a golden retriever belonging to the Middleton family, can be seen lying down behind them. The couple look relaxed and are sitting on the lawn with bright sunlight and the garden behind them, while William has one arm around his wife and the other around Lupo.
In the second, more formal, photo, Kate and William are both standing up, their faces framed by the bright green leaves of the trees around them. The photos were released by Kensington Palace exactly four weeks after George was born.
During the interview, William said Lupo was "coping alright" with the new addition to the family. "As a lot of people know who have got dogs and bringing newborns back, they take a little bit of time to adapt, but no, he's been alright so far," he said. "He's been slobbering sort of around the house a bit so he's perfectly happy."
The interview features in an hour-long documentary - Prince William's Passion: New Father, New Hope - which is to be broadcast on ITV next month.
