The first official photographs of Prince George have been released.

The baby - who is third in line to the British throne - is pictured with his parents, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge.

The BBC reports the pictures were taken by Catherine's father, Michael Middleton, in the garden of their family home in Bucklebury, Berkshire.

They show the royal couple, Prince George and their black cocker spaniel, Lupo. Tilly, a golden retriever belonging to the Middleton family, can be seen lying down behind them.

The photographs of Prince George, who was born on 22 July, were released by Kensington Palace.
