Kate Middleton has shown the world the bonding of siblings Prince George and Princess Charlotte through a series of photographs that were officially released by Kensington Palace.
The Duchess of Cambridge has captured some cute and adorable moments where Prince George, who turns two next month, is seen kissing his younger sister in his lap.
This is the first official portrait of Princess Charlotte since her birth on 2 May. In the series of four informal photographs, one can see how the siblings have bonded and how doting older brother Prince George is.
The pictures were taken by their mother at the family home, Anmer Hall, in Norfolk, just a couple of weeks after giving birth to the youngest royal at the Lindo wing of St Mary's Hospital in London.
Kensington Palace tweeted: "We're delighted to share the first photo of Prince George with his little sister Princess Charlotte."
"The photo of Prince George and Princess Charlotte was taken by The Duchess of Cambridge in mid-May," another tweet followed.

Clearly, Williams and Kate have once again ignored the traditional protocol of appointing an established portrait photographer as the Duchess of Cambridge has taken the shots herself.
In August 2013, it was Kate's father, Michael, who had taken the first official portrait of George.
And this time around, Kate Middleton, who is a keen amateur photographer and has studied photography as part of her history of art degree at St Andrews University, has herself set the frames.
Photographer Hugo Burnand, who took the official Royal Wedding pictures in 2011, has praised Kate's skills. "They're utterly beautiful images which Prince George and Princess Charlotte will treasure forever," he said.
Well, we guess the next set of official family pictures will be released only at Princess Charlotte's christening, due to take place on 5 July at St Mary Magdalene Church at the Queen's Sandringham Estate in Norfolk.
