Now that we have all seen Kate and William and baby George, we want to see them again! It is expected that the couple will have an official photo call with Prince George right before William goes back to work after his two weeks of paternity leave. I would be surprised if we see anything until those two weeks are up. This is the most privacy the couple can expect with George...maybe ever? We haven't really met him, we have seen pictures, but no one has gotten a chance to see any great shots of his features or seen his personality in action.

As a royal, he will continue to be photographed and the world will watch from a distance as he matures and grows until everyone will feel like they know him, just as we all have a sense of William's personality and now Kate's. But, for the moment, George is all theirs, and I don't think they will be keen to end that any sooner than they have to. Two weeks will fly by pretty quickly!

Meanwhile, Her Majesty has flown by private jet to Balmoral. I have a complete obsession with Balmoral. The summer into fall holiday seems too idyllic, I LOVE the moody highlands, the Barbour jackets, the bucolic surroundings. I want to unpack my heavy scarves, heat some tea, and watch Downton Abbey just thinking about it. The Queen is no fool, she loves her yearly holiday in Queen Victoria's favorite castle. Balmoral is the personal property of the Monarch, which makes it even more of a retreat, I would think, and with over 50,000 acres (around 20,000 hectares) she has plenty of room to enjoy the freedom.
When the Queen returns from her holiday at Balmoral, we will probably then see the christening of Prince George, although, I hope we will have some Kate sightings before then!
