New Family Photos: The Cambridges

Breaking with tradition, Prince William and the Duchess of Cambridge opted to have their first family portraits taken by a family member and not an official photographer.  The Duchess’ father, Michael Middleton, took the photos in early August at the Middleton family home in Bucklebury. Even their dog, Lupo, and the Middletons’ retriever, Tilly, joined in on the fun!

The release of the new family photos coincides with Prince William’s first full interview since becoming a father.  He sat down with CNN’s Mark Foster to discuss fatherhood and his future in an interview that will air in the US on September 15th. Here is an excerpt from an article promoting the interview on

“For me, Catherine and now little George are my priorities — and Lupo,” the prince said with a smile. Thankfully Lupo, the couple’s Cocker Spaniel, seems to be on board with the new addition to the family.

“He’s coping all right, actually. As a lot of people know who have got dogs and bringing a newborn back, they take a little bit of time to adapt, but he’s been all right so far. He’s been slobbering around the house a bit, so he’s perfectly happy.”
