(Newser) – Prince George may be a "bit of a rascal" according to dear old dad, but he's nothing if not angelic in the first two photos of the wee babe and his parents to be released. Reuters befittingly describes them as "snapshots": The informal pictures were taken by Kate's dad, Michael, earlier this month while the new family of three was in the garden of her family home. George is sleeping and the photos are neither particularly close up nor of a "professional standard," likely "disappointing royal fans hoping to get a good look at Britain's newest royal heir," observes Reuters.
