New photos of the royal baby!

The first official photos of Prince George have been released--- and they break from royal tradition!

According to Buckingham Palace, the photos of Prince William, Duchess Kate and the new little prince were taken by Kate Middleton's father, Michael, in the garden of the Middleton's home in Bucklebury.

In the past, photos of royal babies have been taken by a professional photographer. The photos were leaked several hours before they were officially released-- leave it to social media to get the word out early. 

The royal family dog, Lupo, even made it in one of the photos ...and if you look closely you might spot Tilly-- the Middleton family retriever!
