You might think you’ve seen pretty much every photograph ever taken of the Royal Family.

However, Kensington Palace has just delighted royal enthusiasts by sharing a never-before-seen photograph of Kate Middleton partaking in one of her royal duties.

On Thursday, the Palace’s official Instagram account shared several images of the Duchess of Cambridge unveiling the winner of the Blue Peter Garden Competition.

In the photos, the 38-year-old can be seen meeting with children who took part in the competition the Back To Nature festival at RHS Garden Wisley on 10th September in Woking.

In the newly-released snap, the Duchess can be seen judging the winning entry for the competition with George Hassall, who was made the first RHS Young Ambassador in October 2015 aged 10.

On Thursday, the Duchess opened up about her disbelief at how quickly her children are growing up.

During a visit to the Family Nurse Partnership (FNP) in Southwark, south London on Thursday, the Duchess of Cambridge spoke of her children: Prince George, six, Princess Charlotte, four and Prince Louis, 18 months.

After speaking with the royal at FNP – a voluntary home visiting programme for first-time parents aged 24 and under - fellow mother Chloe Koroma, 23, said of her conversation with the 38-year-old: ‘She said children grow up so quickly and she can’t believe that George is six already.’

Prince George celebrated his sixth birthday on 22 July during a two-week family holiday to the private island of Mustique.
