In a statement Kensington Palace said: “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.”
Kensington Palace has released four official photos of the christening of Princess Charlotte.
In one photo took by Mario Testino, Princess Charlotte is pictured with her mother and father, Prince William and Kate Middleton, and brother Prince George.
The pictures were taken immediately after Princess Charlotte, the fourth in line to the UK’s throne, was christened at a church on the Sandringham estate on July 5.
Among the photos is a group picture of Princess Charlotte’s immediate family.
That image was taken in the drawing room of Queen Elizabeth’s private Norfolk residence.
A Kensington Palace spokesman said: “The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and their whole family had a wonderful day on Sunday and were delighted to share the special occasion with the thousands of people who came to Sandringham.
“They are very happy to share these photographs and hope that everyone enjoys them as much as they do.”
Celebrity photographer Mario Testino has previously taken pictures of Princes William and Harry with their father, the Prince of Wales, and he took Kate and Will’s engagement pictures.
Kensington Palace has released a series of pictures of Prince George and his little sister, Princess Charlotte.
The four pictures show Princess Charlotte being cradled by her elder brother as they sit on a couch at Anmer Hall in Norfolk, their family home with their royal parents, Prince William and Kate Middleton.
The photos were taken by their mother, Kate Middleton, just weeks after Princess Charlotte was born on May 2.
In each of the pictures, Princess Charlotte is lying on Prince George’s lap, wearing white. The prince is wearing a white shirt, blue shorts and blue socks.
In one, Prince George appears to be kissing his sister on the forehead.

The royal couple is expected to be based there for the next few years as they raise Princess Charlotte and Prince George, who is almost two, with the help of a full-time nanny.
Photography is listed as one of Kate Middleton’s hobbies in her biography on the royal website. The pictures were taken on a Canon EOS 5D Mark II camera.
