Princess Charlotte and Prince George are ready for a close-up, and their proud mom Kate Middleton shared four adorable photos of the results.

These images of their 1- and 22-month-old children were released by parents Prince William, 32, and Princess Kate, 33, early last night …

George is even seen giving Charlotte a kiss on the head in one especially sweet shot, taken by Kate Middleton herself at some point in late May.

The intimate pictures were taken inside William and Kate’s country home, Anmer Hall, during "private family time," a spokesman confirms.

"They’re absolutely lovely," adds the source, stating the obvious.

"The Duchess has taken some absolutely beautiful photos."

Palace officials did not say why Kate and William (or dog Lupo) did not appear, but really, what else is there to say about these perfect shots?

In August 2013, after George was born, a few shots taken by Kate’s father, Michael Middleton, were released that starred the whole family.

In any case, Kate and William made good on a promise to release photos ahead of Princess Charlotte’s christening, set to take place July 5.

Kate Middleton gave birth to their second child May 2, and introduced her to the adoring UK public, and the world, shortly thereafter.
