Royal Family's First Official Portrait Is Out! (PHOTOS)

Awww! 85

Prince William Kate MiddletonIt's out!! The first portrait of the new royal family is out! Kate Middleton and Prince William have released their first official photo with Prince George, plus one with their dogs, Lupo and Tilly. But they're like no official photos we've ever seen before!

They're not professional!

I don't mean that as a smack at the photographer. The photos are adorable and well composed. Just look:

Lupo looks pleased as punch, doesn't he? And Tilly certainly isn't bothered that mama is much more focused on baby these days.

Here's one of just the human members of the family:

So cute, right?

Now guess who took them ...

The photographer is not someone the royal couple hired to come out and capture their family. It was the Duchess' own father! Michael Middleton took the photos of the royal family, including his brand new grandson, in the garden of Kate's childhood home in Bucklebury.

It's a break from tradition, but a sweet one, and the results are perfect!

What do you think of the informal official portraits of the new royal family?

Adorable and classy.  I love that "royalty" has not gone to their heads.  Even though they will never technically be, they are just trying to represent a "normalcy" to an otherwise fantastical life.
