“So for anyone to have issue with the fact that the Princess of Wales delights in sharing her sweet photos with the world is rather churlish, to say the least, don’t you think?

“According to royal photographer John Swannell, Kate is dashing the hopes of a generation of photographers by taking her own pictures of the royal children, rather than letting someone else “make their name” doing it,” she wrote in her column for

“She’s not a great photographer, but she just snaps away, and with kids it’s easier if you know them,” he added.

The adorable daughter of Kate and Prince William is all smiles in the photos snapped by her mother who is a keen amateur photographer.

Charlotte can be seen wearing a blue pullover sweater, paired with a sweet collared blouse and navy blue trousers, perfectly in harmony with the flowers surrounding her.

In one snap, Kate and William’s only daughter holds a bluebell, while in another she is hugging the family cocker spaniel.

Last month, Karren shared her sadness about Prince Harry’s relationship with his brother, Prince William, and father, King Charles III, following the death of the Queen.

She began writing about the reports that Prince Harry was “furious” after Charles allegedly banned Meghan Markle from joining the family to grieve for the Queen shortly after her death.

It came as the Duke of Sussex travelled to Balmoral to say his final goodbyes to the Queen on September 8.

In her column for The Sun, Karren reiterated claims that the King “called up” Harry and told him it was “inappropriate” for his wife to be present.

Writing in The Sun, Karren then dubbed the scenario a “toxic mess”.
