The photo was shot in October at Kensington Palace by photographer Chris Jelf.
Princess Charlotte, 7 months, is dressed up in the same m&h floral dress that she wore in her first official solo portraits taken by Duchess Kate, which were released in late November. Her big brother, Prince George, 2, is wearing a blue Fair Isle sweater from Spanish label Fina Ejerique.
On the same day, William and Kate announced that they will have George start classes at the Westacre Montessori School Nursery in Norfolk by the end of January.
A tweet from the Palace read that “the nursery is ‘looking forward to welcoming George to our nursery where he will get the same special experience as all of our children.'”
The nursery is near the Duke and Duchess’ country home Anmer Hall, located in Norfolk.
