Many a royal fan awoke to a lovely surprise this morning (in the USA), new photos of Princess Charlotte.
The images were taken by Charlotte’s mother, the Duchess of Cambridge. Apparently Kate didn’t take the photos with any intention of releasing them publicly, but they turned out so well the family decided to go ahead and share them with the public. More from Kensington Palace:
The Duchess took these pictures herself and loved them so much she wanted to share them with the public and hopes everyone enjoys them as much as she does.
In the second photo of Charlotte you can just about see the emergence of a little imp.
The photos were taken at Anmer Hall, the Cambridge’s country home, in a setting similar to that seen in the photos Kate took of George and Charlotte together.
While these are not pictures of Kate, or anything she has worn, the interest level in Charlotte is so high that I thought a very quick post was merited; hopefully no one will be too disappointed in that decision. For a much more detailed look at the photos and what Princess Charlotte was wearing, enjoy today’s post at our sister site, What Kate’s Kids Wore.
UPDATED: A reader named Nancy is kind enough to suggest that the fabric on the chair Charlotte is sitting on is Brunschwig & Fils Tresors de Jouy Carsten Check in French Blue. She adds that the material “sells for a budget busting price of over $300 a yard. Ebay has it for half the price, but you would need to buy ten yards.” Here is a look at that material.
