Prince William and wife Kate have released new photos of Prince George, in a sweater vest no less, and the AP notes that the pics are inspiring swooning headlines the likes of "Mummy's Little Soldier Prince" and "Little Prince Charming." The third in line to the throne is pictured on the steps of Kensington Palace, and his parents say in a statement that the release is in " grateful acknowledgment of the fact that their request for Prince George to grow up without intrusion from photography has been, and continues to be, honored." (That hasn't always been the case.) Vanity Fair likens the little prince's facial expressions as a progression in which " George tells a hilarious joke, then takes a pause after delivering the punchline to assess your reaction, and then gets distracted by his mother’s glistening hair."
