We are back with a quick post featuring new photos of Princess Charlotte and Prince George that are part of an upcoming cover story in British GQ.
The pictures were taken at Kensington Palace in April; they accompany an interview with Prince William in the magazine’s July issue. All of the photos in the feature are by noted portrait photographer Norman Jean Roy.
The story is titled “William: A Prince In His Prime.” It is primarily focused on the Heads Together campaign that is working to minimize/eliminate the stigma associated with mental health issues. The Duke speaks about his family in the interview.
“I could not do my job without the stability of the family. Stability at home is so important to me. I want to bring up my children in a happy, stable, secure world and that is so important to both of us as parents.
“I want George to grow up in a real, living environment, I don’t want him growing up behind palace walls, he has to be out there. The media make it harder but I will fight for them to have a normal life.”
British GQ’s July cover.
British journalist Alastair Campbell, familiar to many as Prime Minister Tony Blair’s communication’s manager, conducted the interview. You see him below with Prince William at Kensington Palace.
The issue goes on sale June 1st; click here to see a preview of the article. The magazine is available for Nook readers ($2.50 per individual issue), and also offered at Amazon for Kindle readers ($2.50 per issue).
Now to what the children are wearing in the new photos. Princess Charlotte is in a dress with a small print and white Peter Pan collar, smocking at the bodice, and long sleeves. She is wearing a hair bow much like her Amaia Kids bows, but I should note that Pepa & Co. also offers bows similar to Charlotte’s. The wee Princess appears to have on tights that look like those offered by Amaia Kids that we have seen her wearing frequently. She has on a pair of Mary Jane style shoes, similar to the Papouelli Catalina or the Early Days Alice.
Prince George is in a long sleeve polo shirt that appears to have a standard cuff, not the ribbed cuff often seen on this top style. He is also wearing casual trousers or jeans that we are unlikely to ever identify, there’s just not enough visible in the photos to accomplish that.
But identifying the clothing is secondary to me, and I imagine you as well, it is a treat to see new photos of the children.
