On Thursday, the Duchess of Cambridge was photographed arriving at Kensington Palace with her youngest child Prince Louis. The Duchess, dressed in a green puffer jacket, looked deeply in thought as she drove them at the Palace.
Prince Louis can be seen in the back seat wearing a navy hooded coat.
These photos come just hours after Kensington Palace released a brand new portrait of the Duchess to mark her 38th birthday.
The photo, shot by photographer Matt Porteous, shows Kate sitting on a fence, dressed down in jeans, a checked white and blue shirt and her Fjallraven “Ovik” Re-Wool jumper.
It is thought that the photo was taken at the same time as the Cambridge’s 2018 Christmas card, at Anmer Hall in Norfolk.
“Thank you everyone for all your lovely messages on The Duchess of Cambridge’s birthday!” the post reads.
Members of the royal family have also shared their well-wishes to the Duchess of Cambridge, by sharing a few photos of her.
Kate is expected to spend her birthday in private with her husband William and their three children, George, Charlotte and Louis. Today, neither she nor William had public engagements scheduled. But, she quietly got back to work yesterday, after Christmas break. The Duchess met with Early Years at Kensington Palace.
Her first joint outing with Prince William will be on January 15 to support the community of Bradford.
Five days later, the couple will host a reception at Buckingham Palace to mark the UK-Africa Investment Summit. The event will take place on Monday, January 20.2020.
On Wednesday, Kate’s husband, Prince William took part in a previously unannounced engagement too. The Prince took part in a roundtable discussion on climate change with commissioning editors from the BBC, Channel 4, Sky and ITV.
