Published to commemorate the birth of Prince George of Cambridge, The New Royal Family looks back at the early married life of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, Catherine's maternity wardrobe and the excitement surrounding her pregnancy. The book examines how their individual childhoods will influence that of their first child. Beautifully illustrated with images from the last 24 months, as well an album of royal babies and christenings through the last century, the last chapter celebrates the baby's arrival with images of the relaxed and happy couple as they introduced their new son to the world outside the Lindo Wing of St Mary's Hospital. The New Royal Family will also highlight how royal traditions have adapted to modern times and attitudes to show how this baby will hold a unique place in world history.
