The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge have released the first official portraits of Prince George and his baby sister, Princess Charlotte.

The candid shots were taken by the duchess, who has a reputation as a "keen photographer," at Anmer Hall, the family's home in Norfolk.

The first official pictures of Charlotte's big brother, George, were equally informal, shot by Kate's father, Michael Middleton, at the family home in Bucklebury.

Earlier on Saturday, the official Kensington Palace Twitter account announced that new images of the little prince and princess would be released.

We'll be posting a very special photo of Prince George & his little sister Princess Charlotte late tonight. Can't wait to share it with you!

The royals also shared some of the letters and cards they've received from well-wishers.

The Duke & Duchess are very grateful for the wonderful messages they've received on the birth of Princess Charlotte.

This is the first time the world has seen Princess Charlotte Elizabeth Diana of Cambridge since she left the hospital in her mother's arms on the day of her birth, May 2, 2015.
