LONDRES (AP) — El príncipe Guillermo y la duquesa de Cambridge se olvidaron de los fotógrafos profesionales y eligieron fotos familiares para que fueran las primeras imágenes oficiales de su hijo, el príncipe Jorge.

Funcionarios palaciegos difundieron el martes fotos de Catalina cargando al bebé envuelto en mantas y el príncipe Guillermo a su lado. Las instantáneas fueron tomadas por el padre de Catalina, Michael Middleton, en el jardín de su familia.

Las imágenes casuales rompen la tradición real de contratar fotógrafos profesionales para los retratos infantiles.


Los profesionales tuvieron comentarios disímiles sobre las tomas.


Martin Keene, director de fotografía de la agencia de noticias Press Association, dijo que "cualquier fotógrafo habría estado complacido de haberlas tomado". Pero el veterano fotógrafo real de The Sun, Arthur Edwards, le recomendó a Michael Middleton: "No dejes tu empleo".
