Pictures of Princess Charlotte with Prince George go viral

The first pictures of Britain's newly-born Princess Charlotte in the arms of her elder brother Prince George, giving her a kiss have been released by their parents Prince William and Kate Middleton.

Four pictures, released yesterday by Kensington Palace taken by the Duchess of Cambridge show the princess being cradled by George as they sit on a cream couch at Anmer Hall in Norfolk, the family's home in eastern England.

The pictures were taken just weeks after Princess Charlotte was born on 2 May.
In an earlier tweet, Kensington Palace said the images were "very special".

In each of the pictures, Charlotte is lying on her brother's lap, wearing white sweater.
The prince is wearing a white shirt, blue shorts and blue socks. In one, he appears to be kissing his sister on the forehead.

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and their children have been at Anmer Hall on Queen Elizabeth II's Sandringham estate since leaving London shortly after the birth of the princess.

The family is expected to be based there for the next few years with Princess Charlotte and Prince George, who is almost two, as well as a full-time nanny.

Photography is listed as one of Kate's hobbies in her biography on the UK's royal website and the pictures were taken on a Canon EOS 5D Mark II camera.

The first official images of Prince George, released in 2013, were taken by Kate's father, Michael Middleton, in the garden of their home in Bucklebury, Berkshire.

The princess is fourth in line to the throne after her brother Prince George, who was born on July 22, 2013.

She has been registered as Her Royal Highness Princess Charlotte Elizabeth Diana of Cambridge. She will be christened at St Mary Magdalene Church on the Sandringham estate on July 5.

The release of official pictures is in line with Kate and William's unofficial pact with the British media to allow the royal family some privacy from overly intrusive paparazzi.

Kensington Palace posted this on their official Twitter handle:
