Royal baby portraits released

Published 07/06/2015

Kensington Palace has published adorable photos of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge’s small children Prince George and Princess Charlotte.

British royal favourites Prince William and his wife Catherine, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, welcomed their second child, daughter Charlotte, on May 2.

And on Saturday June 6, Kensington Palace published four photographs of 22-month-old Prince George cradling his one-month-old sibling.

“We're delighted to share the first photo of Prince George with his little sister Princess Charlotte,” Kensington Palace wrote on its official Twitter page.

The tweets also revealed their mother Catherine was behind the sweet series of images.

“The photo of Prince George and Princess Charlotte was taken by The Duchess of Cambridge in mid-May,” another message read.

The final tweet extended warmth in connection to the Royal Family’s new addition.

“Prince George and Princess Charlotte together at home #WelcomeToTheFamily,” the message read.

The debut photos of baby Charlotte come just under a month before her official christening takes place on July 5.

Kensington Palace has previously confirmed the ceremony will be held at St. Mary Magdalene Church on Queen Elizabeth II's Sandringham estate, which is close to their Anmer Hall home.

It was outlined that the Archbishop of Canterbury, the Most Reverend Justin Welby, will be presiding over the religious sacrament. He also christened Charlotte’s big brother Prince George in 2013.

It will be the first time the young royal has been seen since her parents presented her on the steps of London’s St Mary’s Hospital after her birth.

She’ll wear the same royal silk and lace christening gown George wore, which was designed by the queen's assistant, Angela Kelly, and Buckingham Palace's team of dressmakers.
