I feel for the other reviewer: this book has too little of the little dumplin'. But give Will and Kate a break! George Alexander Louis was JUST BORN on July 22!! As of the publishing of this book on September 24, there are necessarily still more published photos of a pregnant Kate than of the little baby. At this tender stage, they're the uber-protective parents. But wait till his christening at 3 months old. I can't wait to see the glorious 4-generation portrait of Elizabeth and Philip, Charles and what's-er-name, Will and Kate, and little George. *
I suggest you suspend your natural impatience--I can't blame you--with:
The Royal Baby Book: A Souvenir Album (Royal Collection Publications - Souvenir Album)
This book goes back to celebrate the 3 current princes--Charles, Will and George--the heirs to the throne, and their 5 predecessor monarchs. All the way 2 centuries ago to Victoria's birth in 1819. I love the history and pageantry of the British monarchy and it's adorable to see, literally, a picture album of 8 royals. Some of the baby gifts and portraits are centuries old, including a charming painting of King George III's wife, Queen Charlotte, holding her sleeping baby with a classic parent's finger raised to shush anyone about to wake her baby. This reviewed book includes a whole lot more about Will's and Kate's upbringing and relationship but if you want the best official crown commemorative of Prince George, you'll have to wait a year or two.
* Interesting note: I believe there is only 1 other 4-generation picture of monarchs, that of Victoria with her son, Edward VII, grandson, George V, and holding Elizabeth II's uncle, Edward VIII in his christening gown. With Victoria and Elizabeth II having the longest reigns, they got to meet their great grandchildren!
Obviously, I preferred the Royal Baby Book to this reviewed book but both are filled with interesting pictures and information.
