My Favorite Photo of Prince George

Just look at those eyelashes and his expressive eyebrows. Love his collar and sweater and his hair too. I copied this from Royal Love Story and the caption there was, "Someone call the doctor--Prince George is giving us BABY FEVER." I have a bad case of it, do you?

Kate, William, and Little George

A recent family portrait with 8 month old George and the royal dog, Lupo.

This must be the start of the royal tour to New Zealand. Maybe they are still in England at this point, not sure.

He's adorable, isn't he. Kate is such a hands-on mom! I want to see more of Prince George, don't you?

Royals Watching the Highland Games in Braemar Scotland

They so enjoy each other's company.

Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh, Queen Ellizabeth II and Prince Charles, Duke of Rothesay laugh as they watch the sack race during the annual Braemer Highland Games at The Princess Royal and Duke of Fife Memorial Park on September 7, 2013 in Braemar, Scotland. The Braemar Gathering is the most famous of the Highland Games and is known worldwide. Each year thousands of visitors descend on this small Scottish village on the first Saturday in September to watch one of the more colourful Scottish traditions. The Gathering has a long history and in its modern form it stretches back nearly 200 years. See more pictures here.

Kate and William Dueling w/ Magic Wands

Last april, the royal couple toured one of the main locations for Harry Potter films and got a short lesson in wand wizzard fighting and of course they mastered it right away, perfectly and effortlessly. She was wearing a white maternity dress with black polka dots and a black jacket and looked absolutely wonderful. via
