Photographs from Kate Middleton's family album released

Family photographs Kate Middleton have been released which show her growing up from a child to Prince William's girlfriend.

The five photographs were taken from the Middleton family album and released for the first time as pace gathers towards her big day in April when she walks down the aisle of Westminster Abbey.

The images show a sequence of private moments on special occasions in the 29-year-old former shop worker's life.

She is shown on a break with her family, determinedly climbing a rock while on holiday and graduating from St Andrew's University in Fife.

The first image shows a smiling Kate, taken when she was aged five.In it she looks mischievous with the sun falling across her face, her hair tied back but tumbling down at the front around her forehead and ears.

The second photograph shows Kate, aged four, with her father Michael and sister Pippa in Jerash, Jordan.

In this shot the trio are relaxing on the rocks and enjoying the sights of one of the largest and most well preserved sites of Roman architecture. The family moved to Amman in May 1984 when Kate was two and her father worked there for two-and-a-half years.

Another image demonstrates the young Kate's playful side and love of a challenge. Aged three-and-a-half, she climbs a steep rock, on all fours, while on holiday in the Lake District.

There is a jump through the years with the next photograph to graduation day at St Andrew's University in 2005.

In one image, Kate is shown in her graduation gown with a white open-necked blouse and pearl earrings, while in the last image she and Prince William share an embrace for the camera.
