Family portrait like it or hate it
I'll deviate from my collection of pictures from Melaka for this picture. Loads of criticism on the net when it first came out. I'm not sure how true this is but Michael Middleton is meant to have taken this picture. I wonder how he must have felt reading those rather nasty comments dissecting this picture to death, talking about the composition, lack of proper lighting etc. But perhaps, he should have known better, when you attempt ( and fail)at trying to be different from the norm, sparks will fly. This is no ordinary baby. He is the future King of England.His parents are also the future monarchs of England. His grandmother is perhaps the most well known monarch in the World.
Now wilth all this at stake, perhaps it was a little foolish to release this picture. You cannot pretend to be middle class. This will anger the real poor. Do not pretend to be something you are not. You are royal, you live in palaces, you ride in carriages for some occasions ( like your wedding for instance) and more importantly you need NEVER worry about money or getting tickets to Wimbledon, Olympics, Ascot, Derby. And you don't have or need a passport. You're special, accept it and work for your people. Otherwise, the monarchy might well end before you get a chance to be called King. I blame William for coming up with this half baked idea.
