HIS OFFICIAL PORTRAIT WAS SHOT BY GRANDPA

Just a few days shy of Prince George turning one month old, Prince William and Kate released two informal family photos (dogs included!) taken at the Middleton's home in Bucklebury. Breaking from the royal tradition of an official portrait shot by a professional photographer on palace grounds, the casual garden pictures were snapped by Kate's father, Michael. A palace source tells PEOPLE Will and Kate thought having a family member take the photos was the "best way to capture the couple in a relaxed manner" – an indication of how the modern couple plans to handle baby's future milestones.
