— -- They grow up so quickly.
Kensington Palace released two new photos of 6-month-old Princess Charlotte today. The photos were taken in early November by Her Royal Highness The Duchess of Cambridge at their country home Anmer Hall in Norfolk, the Palace said.
"The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are delighted to be able to share two new photographs of Princess Charlotte," the Palace said in a statement. "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."
Now third-in-line to the throne, Princess Charlotte Elizabeth Diana has inherited her grandmother and namesake Princess Diana's blue eyes, which she shares with her father, but has brown hair like her mother.
The new Princess of Hearts, Charlotte was born on May 2 in the same hospital where her older brother Prince George was born.
Charlotte was last seen by the public at her christening in July on Her Majesty The Queens' estate at Sandringham. William and Kate released several photos of the family at the time.
William recently described his daughter as a "little joy of heaven" and "ladylike" while Kate acknowledged that Charlotte was getting used to "her noisy big brother."
William and Kate wanted to share the photos as thanks for allowing their children to grow up with some semblance of privacy
Absent from the photos is Prince George. The Palace last released photos him over the summer around his second birthday.
