If you were surprised the Queen didn't pose for any photos holding great-grandson Prince George after his christening, don't be. It turns out the photo of His Royal Highness with his parents Kate Middleton and Prince William released last week is not the last image we'll see from the post-christening shoot with photographer Jason Bell. Her Majesty is reportedly holding a few heavily guarded photos of Prince George back for her Christmas card!
Welcome to royalty, Duchess. You do all the hard work, and great-granny gets all the glory!
Look, I'm sure the Duchess was very gracious when she was asked -- wait, make that if she was asked -- about her little guy being front and center on the Queen's Christmas card. She's Kate! She oozes grace!

But it had to rankle just a wee bit. He's her son. She's the mom! Sharing him on her Christmas card is her thing -- she should get to show him off like all the other moms on the big holiday. Only now her in-laws have just swept in and stolen her Christmas card idea!
You don't have to be married to the future King to know how that feels. Ever had a grandparent rain on your parade? Sure, they're proud as punch, and they just lurv to show off their precious grandchild, but sometimes that pride goes a little too far. You know, like putting your grandkid on your Christmas card.
But don't worry, Duchess fans, she's got an ace in the hole. Prince William and Kate Middleton are reportedly going to use the SAME photo on their card! We can't wait to see it!
How would you feel if your child's grandparents wanted to put him/her on the Christmas card? Would you take Kate's lead and be gracious or be mad as a wet hen?
