Whether you’re a royal watcher, indifferent to royalty, or fiercely anti-monarchy, you will probably confess to being rather taken with young Will (2nd in line to the British throne), his stylish wife Kate, the Duchess of Cambridge, and their now one-year-old offspring, George. Dubbed Prince Charming, Curious George, style icon, and social butterfly, George is captivating the public wherever he goes.
There are many magazines out commemorating his first year but my favourite is the US — Collector’s Edition called Will & Kate — George’s First Year. Characterized as “At Home with the Royals” and “The Family Album”, this edition covers not only the young family but the Prince William’s family album with many pictures of Princess Diana in happier times, other generations of the royal family with their new babies, and a pictorial tour of Kensington Palace, the 275-acre playground where little George Cambridge is growing up. There are also pictures of George with Kate’s family including their February holiday in the Carribean, pictures of the Australian tour, and a round-up of royal “firsts”. What story of the young newlyweds would complete without fashion pictures of the stylish duchess and a section about how Will is preparing to be king.
This is a classy magazine on heavy gloss paper that will indeed by a “Collector’s Edition”. The cover pictures alone are worth the price and it may already be difficult to obtain. My edition says it’s on display until Aug. 21st but I just bought mine on the 25th so maybe . . .
