Snapped by her adoring mother, the Duchess of Cambridge, this is littlePrincess Charlotteat six months old.Not seen in public since her christening in July, two photographs of the fourth in line to the throne have today been released by Kensington Palace as a thank you to the British media for giving William and Kate’schildren the chance to grow up away from the spotlight.With her thick brunette hair, Charlotte is very much her mother’s daughter, in contrast to her elder brother, Prince George, two, who has inherited his father’s blonde locks.

Babies of Charlotte’s age are making major strides in their development and the princess appears to have reached some of her targets – sitting up, laughing and engrossed with the world, and is likely to be gurgling and able to roll around unaided.Facially she bears a striking resemblance to her brother, Prince George, with her mother’s hair and eyes.Kensington Palace said in a statement: ‘The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are delighted to be able to share two new photographs of Princess Charlotte.’They were taken by The Duchess in early November at their home in Norfolk.’The Duke and Duchess continue to receive warm messages about Princess Charlotte from all around the world and they hope that everyone enjoys these lovely photos as much as they do.’A royal aide told Mail Online: ‘The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are very grateful for the support they have received when it comes to their children and wanted to share these very charming pictures taken by the Duchess. It is something they intend to continue to do.’

Charlotte was born on May 2, like her brother at the Lindo Wing of St Mary’s Hospital, Paddington.She was seen on the steps of the hospital when she left with her parents later and also at her christening in July, when members of the public and media were invited to watch the family walk to church at the Sandringham, the Queen’s private estate in Norfolk.She was named Charlotte Elizabeth Diana in honour of William’s grandmother, the Queen, and late mother Diana, Princess of Wales.Although the couple are keen for their children to enjoy as normal a childhood as possible, away from the public glare, William enjoys talking about his daughter.He has described her as a ‘little joy of heaven’ as well as being very well-behaved and ‘ladylike’ in comparison to her boisterous big brother, George.
