First Official Photos of the Royal Prince!

Released less than 24 hours ago…here are the first official photos of the little Royal Prince George Alexander Louis of Cambridge with his parents, the Duke William and Duchess Kate.  These images were taken by the Duchess’ father, Michael Middleton, in the garden of the Middleton family’s home in Bucklebury, Berkshire.

The simplicity and beauty we see in these photos reminds us that although they are royalty, they treasure their family & new baby the same as we do.  Those of us lucky enough to have a loving family know first-hand how enjoyable it is to celebrate such a momentous event with loved ones close at hand.  We can clearly see how much they love little George and relate to their feelings of pride and excitement.  Seeing Kate & William so relaxed and in such a bucolic environment reminds us of why we love these unique royals so much.

Although we here at DRIA can not speak for everyone… we are SUPER excited to see some more photos.  We have already seen how Kate rocked the fashion world with her style and thrifty shopping.  Now we are starting to see how she has influenced maternity wear just by being photographed in few choice outfits.  The Royal Prince has followed in his mom’s footsteps and has already started a fashion following of his own by being wrapped in such a cute swaddling blanket after birth.  A few photos of the Royal Prince in his Swaddling blanket has started such a craze that the company announced they have a waiting list after selling out hours after the prince came out of the hospital.  Perhaps soon we may find Kate in her Dria Cover, breastfeeding the Royal Prince, or perhaps we will get a glimpse of the little prince wrapped up and snuggled in his mommy’s Dria cover ; )

Have you seen these pics yet?  What do you love most about them?  Leave a comment below.

Will the Royal Baby Boy be Breastfed Under a Nursing Cover?

Yesterday, we found out that after about 14 hours of labor, the Duchess, Kate Middleton, gave birth to a healthy royal baby boy who weighed in at 8 lbs and 6 oz.

Many of us probably received our first notification of her delivery via Twitter, but it appears that royal family decided to stick with traditions in the initial announcement of the little, Royal Highness Prince of Cambridge (the baby’s formal title).  They first announced the baby’s new arrival with an official bulletin signed by the Duchess’ medical team placed on a wooden easel in the forecourt of Buckingham Palace.

It appears that the Royal family’s set on preserving their traditions while still keeping with the times, in ways they see fit.  This brings up the topic of, “Will the Duchess and Duke follow family traditions in how they care for and raise their child?”  Will they follow even widespread traditions, such as nursing their child?  If they do choose to breastfeed the little prince, will the princess do so in privacy, out of the public eye?  Or will the princess become a modern breastfeeding mother in public, with or without a nursing cover?  Also, will we one day see The Duke of Cambridge wearing his baby boy in a carrier?  We can’t wait to see what they do, how their decisions effect the maternity/parenting communities, and to just catch a glimpse of them as a family with their newest addition.

What are your thoughts?  Do you think the Duchess will breastfeed in public and have any type of affect on our communities?  What do you think they will name their baby boy?
