A family affair as new pictures released of Princess Charlotte and Duchess Kate
New photographs of Princess Charlotte, taken by her mother, the Duchess of Cambridge, at their home in Norfolk, have been released to mark her first birthday today.
The four new pictures offer an intimate snapshot of how the young princess has grown up during her first 12 months.
One of the new photos shows Charlotte's startling resemblance to George as she clambers on a wicker chair, playfully glancing back towards the camera.
A spokeswoman for William and Kate said: "The Duke and Duchess are very happy to be able to share these important family moments."
Meanwhile, new portrait photographs of a beaming Duchess of Cambridge have gone on public display. Kate is shown looking casual and relaxed in the pictures, taken in the Norfolk countryside earlier this year, in a marked departure from more formal official images of the Royal Family.
In one close-up shot, the Duchess is wearing a black fedora hat from Beyond Retro and a charcoal brown double-breasted suede coat and white shirt, both from Burberry.
The photos, taken by British photographer Josh Olins, will hang in the National Portrait Gallery, where Kate has been a patron since 2012.
