Kensington Palace released the first photos of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and Prince George. The photos, taken earlier this month by the Duchess’ father Michael Middleton, show the new family in the garden of Michael and Carole’s sprawling Bucklebury manor.
One photo shows William, Catherine, George with their cocker spaniel, Lupo and the Middleton family’s retriever, Tilly.
The Duke and Duchess stayed with the Middletons for the first few weeks of George’s life. Now it’s understood that the family of three is staying at their rented farmhouse in Anglesey, Wales while William finishes his operational tour with the Royal Air Force.

Some will send binkies. Some will send booties. Some will send rattles. But the government of Australia gave the newborn prince/their monarchal overlord Prince George Alexander Louis another sort of gift entirely: a baby crocodile. The little snapper was hatched on December 3, the same day Kate Middleton announced her pregnancy to the world, and he’ll be joining the pair of crocodiles already “gifted” to Prince William and Kate the last time they visited Australia. But lil’ Georgie won’t actually get to play with his new pet croc, as he will live in a city called Darwin, presumably at a zoo. What a shite baby gift! George can’t even take it for walks around Kensington Palace or scratch its chin without getting his hand snapped off. Oh well. Queen Elizabeth is probably going to give him, like, the Cayman Islands or something, so it’ll work out. [Telegraph UK]
The wait is over! George Alexander Louis is the name Kate Middleton and Prince William have chosen for their son, who was born on Monday in London. The child will formally be known as His Royal Highness Prince George of Cambridge, as his parents are the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge. [AP]
Now that the Great Kate Wait is over and the baby prince has been born, we’ve shifted our obsession to guessing what the royal baby name will be! Given that Will and Kate have hundreds of years of tradition to uphold, chances are that the royal moniker will be chosen from this no-weird-names shortlist, and announced some time this week. Keep in mind royals choose several middle names (Prince William has three – William Arthur Philip Louis) so the full name could be a combination of some of the options below. Here are the current frontrunners: Keep reading »
You guys, it’s the royal baby! And he looks just like we expected – like a baby! OH HAPPY DAY! “We could not be happier,” Prince William said about he and Kate’s new bundle of joy. Congrats to them!
If you were hoping to catch a glimpse of Kate Middleton leaving the hospital the day after giving birth looking anything but Duchess of Cambridge-caliber fresh, you, mon amie, are out of luck. Lest we forget that the new mother is truly no mere mortal, Kate’s got her personal hairdresser on deck, prepping the Duchess’s royal locks for the inevitable gawking to come upon her exit. I mean, it may sound egregious, but when you really think about it… who won’t be looking at Kate today? Nobody, that’s who, and when you’re a public figure celebrated for (among other things, of course) your perfect hair, I can’t blame her for wanting to bring it. [Fashionista]
