She's a royal shutterbug! Duchess of Cambridge Kate Middleton used a professional-quality camera lens to capture the latest photos of her adorable 6-month-old daughter, Princess Charlotte, Us Weekly can reveal exclusively.

Middleton used her Canon EOS 5D Mark II to capture the latest snaps of the little princess, and followed the basic rules of photography to produce gorgeous images. The Duchess, 33, first propped Charlotte, the fourth in line to the royal throne, against a plush, gingham-printed armchair. Middleton then used the basic rules of composition to focus on the little one, blurring out a sliver of the backdrop.

She also captured a cute candid moment between her blue-eyed, brunette daughter and a stuffed animal.

Kensington Palace told Us Weekly and other reporters in its release that the sweet images were taken at Middleton and Prince William's home in Norfolk in early November. "The Duke and Duchess continue to receive warm messages about Princess Charlotte from all around the world," the Palace noted to Us. "And they hope that everyone enjoys these lovely photos as much as they do."

The Duke, 33, and Duchess welcomed their second child this past May. Several months later, Prince William revealed that Charlotte already has quite the personality. “She’s been a little joy from heaven,” he said of his daughter. “But at the same time, it’s a lot more responsibility, looking after two little ones, especially when George is around. He’s a little monkey.”
