-- Two new photographs of Prince William and Kate taken in mid-March in the gardens of Kensington Palace are now being seen for the first time.
The photos were commissioned privately by William, 33, and Kate, 34, and shot by Chris Jelf, the same photographer who captured the royal couple with their two children, Prince George and Princes Charlotte, for their 2015 Christmas message.
The newly-revealed photos of William and Kate were used to accompany thank you notes sent to well-wishers who sent the royal couple congratulations for their fifth wedding anniversary, which they celebrated on April 29.
The inscription inside the note reads, "The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge were so touched that you took the trouble to write as you did on the occasion of their 5th Wedding Anniversary. It really was most thoughtful of you and Their Royal Highnesses send you their warmest thanks and best wishes."
In her message, Duchess Kate wrote, “When families are confronted with the shattering news that their child has a life-limited condition, their world can fall apart. For those facing this awful reality access to hospice and palliative care services can transform their quality of life and help families make the most of the time they have together. I would like to thank the International Children’s Palliative Care Network membership for being the global advocate for children needing palliative care, and working to ensure that children and families across the world have a chance of accessing this vital lifeline."
