    Royal baby portraiture decaying?

    The first official family portraits are out. Things sure have changed in the 65 years since baby Charles was introduced...

    So sad. They probably got them cheap from a friend of the mother.
    I couldn't think of anything witty to say so I left this blank.

    Looking at the first picture taken by Kate's dad, I don't agree with the criticism of this shot. The printing/representation isn't great, but he has caught a great moment, especially with Lupo the cocker spaniel. Great shot well done and may have been stronger in black & white.

    Life as we know it surely has come to an end. Aaaargh... Normal baby pictures rather than gold and ermine-framed portraits. How tacky!

    Folks should leave those kids alone and let them enjoy their family as they choose. There will be plenty of opportunity for pomp and ceremony if or when they get voted in as the next reighning royal.

    Not to be that guy, but that's not quite how a monarchy works...

    Well .......

    William or George might very well get "voted in", if there are any abdications involved.
