The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge have released the first official photos of their new son, Prince George of Cambridge.


The beautiful photos show George, who was born on July 22, in his mother's arms. William is by their side, and in a second photo the family's dog Lupo joins them.

The photos are the first official snaps of the new family. They were taken by Kate's father, Michael Middleton, in early August in the garden of the Middleton family home in Bucklebury, Berkshire.

William is now back at work as a search and resuce pilot in the RAF, while Kate is on maternity leave from her public duties.

She will make her first official engagement since becomng a mum on September 12, when she joins William at an event for the charity Tusk Trust.

To mark William's work with the African charity, he recently gave an interview with CNN for the programme Prince William: New father, new hope. He told the programme: "He's a little bit of a rascal, put it that way. So he either reminds me of my brother or me when I was younger. I'm not sure.

"But he's doing very well at the moment. He does like to keep having his nappy changed. He's growing quite quickly actually. But he's a little fighter. He wriggles around quite a lot. And he doesn't want to go to sleep that much, which is a little bit of a problem! Catherine is doing a fantastic job."

What a beautiful baby boy! Congratulations Kate and Wills!
