Kate Middleton continues to do things her way—and we love her ever more for it! A Palace source says that Kate and William may forgo a formal portrait of their son and could release personal pics, instead.

Photos: See tons of pics from Prince George’s appearance on the steps!


The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge have spent the first few weeks of Prince George‘s life hanging out with Kate’s parents in Bucklebury, and one can imagine why they would not want to interrupt the peace with a stuffy photographer. A source speculates to People that Kate herself may snap the pics, which could be distributed via their website and social media. How modern!

Watch: You’ll never guess which food Kate and William ordered to the hospital room!

There’s something immensely sweet about the idea that somewhere in the English countryside, Kate is aiming her iPhone at her baby and putting filters over his cute face, trying to figure out which ones to send to her friends (i.e. us, the world). No matter which way Kate and Will choose, Georgie will still likely go the formal portrait route for his christening in the fall.

What do you think of this plan? Do you think that it’s radical for Kate to release pics via social media? Don’t you wish you were one of her inner-circle friends, getting pics texted to you on the regular? Tell us in the comments below or tweet us @OKMagazine.
