The palace released a new family photo Friday of Prince William, his wife Kate, and their children Prince George and Princess Charlotte.

The photo was tweeted from the Kensington Palace twitter account. 

It was reportedly taken in October in the palace gardens.

This comes as Britain's young Prince George prepares to go to nursery school. 

Kensington Palace officials said George will begin attending the Westacre Montessori School Nursery in Norfolk, 110 miles north of London, before the end of January.

The prince is nearly 2 and a half years old and has been raised largely out of the public eye, although he has on occasion traveled with his parents.
