Prince William George Is A Bit Of A Rascal Prince William has said that his son Prince George is "a little fighter" who "wriggles around quite a lot and he doesn't want to go to sleep that much". In his first interview since becoming a father, the Duke of Cambridge talks about his "emotional experience" of the past few weeks, adding that his son is "a little bit of a rascal".

The Young Queen A Picture you've never seen Previously unpublished family photographs of the Queen as a young girl can now be seen for the first time in a new book. The book, released this week to mark the birth of Prince George, contains three new pictures which show the future Queen between the ages of two and four. In each of the images, taken by her parents, the then-princess demonstrates that she had a love of horses from a tender age. One photo taken by her father, the future King George VI, sees the young Princess Elizabeth sitting on a toy horse at Naseby Hall in Northamptonshire in 1928, with her mother by her side. In the same year, she is pictured sitting in a wicker pram, holding the reins of a miniature toy horse and cart. Her mother took the third photo in 1930, which sh...
Prince William Saddened By Kenya Ranch Murder Prince William is saddened to learn a retired army officer who helped run a game reserve where the Duke proposed to Kate Middleton, has been murdered during a robbery.

On returning to the main house she found the body of her husband on the floor, police said. The raid happened at the couple's Lolldaiga Hills cattle ranch in the town of Nanyuki in the early ho
The royal baby pictures show privilege trying and failing to look normal Say cheese! The smiles of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge say it all in their first official photographs with Prince George. Those grins say, for a start, that we are looking at an amateur photograph. No professional asks people to beam for their portraits in the toothy way the royal parents do as they pose on a lawn with their baby and a handsome dog. The photographer is the happy mum's father, Michael Middleton. Picture editors and photographers have praised his work, as the unstoppable flood of sycophancy unleashed by the royal birth continues to sweep away sanity and proportion. These are plainly amateur pictures: the Raphaelesque triangular composition (completed by the dog) is as innocent and old-fashioned as
Where Was Prince George During Prince William and Kate Middleton's Public Appearance Everyone was surprised to see Kate Middleton step out with Prince William for her first public appearance since giving birth, but one question remains unanswered: where was little Prince George?
