In which Kensington Palace cracks the whip to bring me back to work several hours early, by releasing these on the Twitters. But what are five hours of lying on the sofa watching TV and shoving leftover queso dip in my mouth, after all?

For purposes of comparison, here’s George at KINDA the same age. I do not think they look much alike, other than the Majestic Round Cheeks I Want To Gnaw Upon, Gently. I also appreciate that Kate is letting me eyeball one of her armchairs at Anmer. Personally, I think it could use a throw pillow.

OR A STUFFED PUPPY. You’re right, Charlotte. That’s a much better idea.
