Prince William’s reaction to new baby photos of him and Princess Diana revealed

The late Princess of Wales and Prince William were recently featured in several newly released photos. Prince William’s response to those images has been made public.

The Prince of Wales was seen in the touching pictures being carried by his mother in September 1982, when the royal was only three months old. The pictures were released by The Mirror on Wednesday.

Over 15 years ago, the valet of Lord King gave the disputed photos to Geoffrey Phillips of Snappy Snaps Pimlico, who has a total of 23 pictures in his collection. In 2016, Geoffrey sent a letter and the disputed photos to the office of the then-Duke of Cambridge.

When Prince William received the letter and pictures, his private secretary at the time sent Geoffrey a reply outlining his reaction. The royal at the time was said to “have been deeply moved upon receiving the pictures of him with his late mother when he was a newborn and expressed his gratitude for how discreetly they had been handled.”

Then-Prince Charles, William’s father, is seen cuddling his son in another image from the collection as William gazes into the lens. In a third image, the Princess of Wales, who tragically passed away in August 1997, is pictured admiring a picturesque rural scene while wearing a white polo neck and a brown cardigan.

Charles and Diana can be seen in the adorable pictures being loving parents to their eldest son. A few of the images also feature Diana and Charles with the late Queen, who was Diana’s father.

They were captured by Baron King, a friend of the royal family and businessman for British Airways, in September 1982 at the monarch’s Scottish estate Balmoral.

The images were reportedly not intended for publication when they were first taken, but they are now being put up for auction. On March 4 at 10 a.m., Willingham Auctions in Cambridgeshire will hold an auction for the photographs and their negatives.
