SAN DIEGO (CNN) — What a sweet snapshot: Mom, dad, the baby boy … and two charming canines.
It’s one of two photos released Monday by Kensington Palace of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, their newborn son, Prince George, and a couple of four-legged friends.
The photos were shot by Michael Middleton, Catherine’s father, in early August in the garden of the Middleton family home in Bucklebury, Berkshire.
One portrait shows Catherine, the Duchess of Cambridge, beaming while holding the swaddled George, who is third in line to the British throne. The happy husband, Prince William, is beside them, all smiles.
They are accompanied on the left by Tilly the retriever, a Middleton family pet, and on the right by Lupo, the couple’s cocker spaniel.
The other portrait shows the royal couple alone with the young prince.
