Transcript for Royal Family Portrait Is First Official Pic of Prince George
No thank you. Happy news, now. The royal baby photos, the whole world's been waiting for them. The first pictures of prince george. This is a new generation of royals. Instead of staged and stodgy photos, relaxed snapshots with the family pets, taken by kate's father. Abc's bianna golodryga has the story. Reporter: They just may be the most anticipated family photos ever. These new snapshots of prince george, swaddled in a delicate white blanket, together with his proud parents, are on the cover of every british newspaper this morning. And are now rocketing across the internet. We're seeing something a little bit different. A little more intimate. And something we haven't seen before. Reporter: Perhaps most unique, this family photo was not snapped by world-famous photographers. But instead, by catherine's father, michael, taken in early august, in the garden of the middletons' family home in buckleberry. He's not a professional photographer. It wasn't taken with a professional camera. Reporter: This is the first time for instance george has been seen publicly since leaving st. Mary's hospital last month. A moment prince william talked about in a knew documentary for cnn. They want to see george. Any new parent knows, you're happy to show off your new child. And pretending he's the best ever. Reporter: These knew photos are far less formal than when george's father was introduced in these official portraits in 1982. William and kate's cocker spaniel can be seen. A lot of people know, we have dogs and bringing a newborn. They take a little time to adapt. But they've been all right. He's been sobering around the house a bit. He's perfectly happy. What makes the images different to what's been done in the past, is a lack of formality. They're trying to put across they're a normal as family. As normal as possible. Not even cute photos of baby george are controversy-free. There are royal watchers saying, this is too informal. But the photos are going to go down in history for years. I'm not one of them. I'm just reporting. They were shooting into the light, too. I love that. It shows their one of the people. And having your dad take those first pictures, I think is really great. It says a lot about family. The first grandchild. Right. It's just all babies look the same to me. They do. I'm sorry. And they're, like -- they all look the same. Is it a prop? Exceptionally cute. All very cute. All very cute.
