See Two Adorable New Photos of Princess Charlotte -- Taken By Kate Middleton - Vanity Fair

It is time to e-mail everyone you had Thanksgiving dinner with and let them know you have to make an addendum to your What are you thankful for? response. Yes, as if hearing our recent lament that there have not been many public sightings of young royals George and Charlotte these past few months, Kensington Palace has offered a surprise this morning, releasing two new photos of Princess Charlotte.

In one, Charlottewho was born in May of this yearappears to be looking out in the distance, perhaps contemplating that she never wrote back to Blue Ivy Carters most recent text, and still needs to decide if shes going to attend Silas Timberlakes holiday party.

In the other, Charlottein the same pink cardigan outfitis delightfully engaging with a stuffed animal (expect, of course, both the cardigan and the stuffed dog to sell out by the end of the morning).

As if all of this wasnt exciting enough, the palace has shared that both of these images, taken in early November at William and Kates Norfolk home, were snapped (as the first official portraits taken of her were) by her mother, the Duchess of Cambridge.
