Michael Middleton follows a long line of photographers to have captured important images of members of the royal family.
Little is known about how much experience the British Airways flight dispatcher-turned-businessman has behind the lens, but as the first official photographs to be taken of the future king, the pictures are sure to have their place in history.
The intimate family portraits were taken in the garden of the Middleton family home in Bucklebury, Berkshire, earlier this month and for Mr Middleton, they are not only of a future monarch but of his first grandchild.
Martin Keene, head of pictures at the Press Association, said the photographs were impressive. "Any photographer would have been pleased to have taken them," he said.
