The first official photographs of Prince George have been released. Lying peacefully in the arms of the Duchess of Cambridge, the newborn, who is third in line to the throne, seems to be sleeping in the pictures.
This is the first official family picture of Prince George with his parents and family dog Lupo. It was taken by Kate Middleston's father, Michael Middleton at his home in Bucklebury in Berkshire, earlier this month.
