Queen Elizabeth Proudly Displays Prince George's Portrait In Sitting Room

Queen Elizabeth II is very proud of her new great-grandson, Prince George. That much is obvious if one looks at the new photo Her Majesty has on display in her sitting room at Balmoral Castle in Scotland.

Even though there were some raised brows at the fact that new parents Kate Middleton and Prince George didn't want a traditional family portrait as has been the custom with other royals, the Queen appears to be okay with that now.

We don't know what Elizabeth II thinks of how independent William and Kate are, but they clearly have done things their own way so far taking baby George, at merely days of being born, to her parents' home in Bukclebury to recover from the stress of the pregnancy.

In the past, newborns are whisked into the capable hands of nannies who are on call 24/7 watching over the new royal bundles of joy.

Not in this case. William and Kate insist on doing things their own way, taking care of their son themselves and in a break from tradition, against Queen Elizabeth's wishes, Prince George was taken out of London almost immediately after being born.

As previously reported byThe Inquisitr, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge accepted an invitation to spend some time with William's side of the family at Balmoral during the Queen and Prince Philip's annual summer holiday.

The couple is just starting to have a more public schedule after being away from the spotlight for a couple of months following the birth of the future King of England on July 22.

After being "spoiled" by mom, Carole Middleton, Kate and her new family left for Anglesey, Wales to finalize their departure from the place they called home for the past three years while her husband was stationed as a search and rescue pilot with the Royal Air Force.
