The Duchess of Cambridge gave fans a glimpse of the heartwarming snap when she spoke to teachers from County Durham on Thursday. The photo was sitting in a frame and placed carefully behind Kate as she conducted her virtual discussion.
In the picture, Prince George and Princess Charlotte appear to be sitting back-to-back facing towards the camera.
Both of the young royals are wearing Khaki-coloured tops.
It is not clear when the photo was taken but George and Charlotte appear to be sat outside while the snap was shot.
The never before seen photo is accompanied by other pictures royal fans will be familiar with.
One is a picture of George and Charlotte on the princess’ first day of school at Thomas’ Battersea.
Another is a photo of the Duchess holding her youngest Prince Louis at her garden in the 2019 RHS Chelsea Flower Show.
The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge have been using the Queen’s house at Sandringham to conduct royal video calls.
The couple have also recorded some virtual engagements from their country home, Anmer Hall, in Norfolk.

Kate said: “I think everyone can recognise that schools are doing an amazing job.
“As parents as well, you really recognise what a vital role you do play for us on a day-to-day basis.
“Having remote learning going on as well, [it must] be hugely challenging to juggle both for a school.”
She added: “[I’m] so passionate about all the work that teachers up and down the country are doing. You are doing the most amazing job.
“You are a lifeline to so many families out there. I know it takes an awful lot of effort, energy, and patience.
“Thank you for the hard work you do on a day-to-day basis for the children that you look after.”
Last week, the Duchess took part in a discussion with three parents whose children attend Roe Green Junior School in Kingsbury, London.
Kate told the parents how she had become a “hairdresser” during the pandemic which caused a strong reaction from her children.
She said: “I’ve become a hairdresser this lockdown, much to my children’s horror, seeing mum cutting hair.
“We’ve had to become a teacher – and I think, personally, I feel pulled in so many different directions and you try your best with everything, but at the end of the day I do feel exhausted.”
