Photo: Duchess of Cambridge


Two gorgeous new photos have been released of Princess Charlotte, taken by the Duchess of Cambridge herself and released by Kensington Palace on Friday as a thank you to fans.  They were uploaded onto Twitter here.  The royal couple appear to be enjoying family life and their beautiful 7 month old daughter as she quickly grows towards toddlerhood.  Kensington Palace relayed that ‘The Duke and Duchess hope everyone enjoys these new photos of Princess Charlotte as much as they do’.  

No doubt, the royal home isn’t always as calm as it appears in the photos, and I’m sure Kate often has her hands full with two littlies, the royal couple having previously described Prince George as ‘a little bit of a rascal’, as all toddlers can be!  The photos are a celebration of life and childhood; precious moments caught in time.  The fact Kate took the pictures herself once again seems to illustrate her hands on approach to motherhood and her dedication to this important job.
