While Kate is not seen, sister Pippa Middleton is also featured in a handful of pictures, attending a sports charity event in one and enjoying a merry-go-round with husband James- who is featured as far back as 2013.
As well as swimming, skiing and hiking, the activity buff is seen refurbishing a boat he describes as an ‘eBay purchase’, fishing, water boarding and rowing.
Other pictures also see him hanging out with Spencer Matthews, whose brother, also called James Matthews, is married to James’ sister Pippa.

In September it emerged the youngest Middleton is working as a host at Glen Affric Lodge near Loch Ness, owned by David Matthews, father of Pippa’s hedge fund manager husband, James.
Affric Lodge comes with ample opportunities for outdoor activities, along with personal gamekeepers, world-class cuisine from personal French chefs and a butler service.
After splitting from Donna Air last February, James’ marshmallow business Boomf has posted losses of £3 million over the past three years.
The move north could be permanent as he recently said in a magazine interview, ‘the countryside is where I’m happiest and I’ll be taking my dogs to Glen Affric with me.’

The Matthews family also own the Oetker Collection-managed Eden-Rock St Barths resort, where James was recently pictured with his new girlfriend.
Eden Rock is one of the most exclusive hotels in the world, where everyone from Beyonce to Elton John, Brad Pitt and Leonardo DiCaprio has stayed, and demands £25,000 a night for its most expensive suite.
This month it was revealed that James had been seeing French financial expert Alizee Thevenet, 29, for six months.
The pair were pictured holidaying in St Barts with Pippa Middleton, her husband James Matthews, brother-in-law Spencer Matthews, and his wife Vogue Williams.
Despite splitting from Donna Air last February, a picture of his ex still remains on his account from August 2014, with Donna commenting ‘Oi’ at the time- James still follows both Donna and her daughter Freya

In 2014 James shared a throwback of himself as a child, with a pal commenting ‘this is exactly how I remember you!’
Speaking about the romance, Alizee’s father, who owns a Bed & Breakfast in rural France, told MailOnline: ‘James is a very charming man.
‘I am very happy that Alizee is together with James. I know she is very happy. We keep our fingers crossed for them.
‘I am not allowed to say how they met, to give away their secrets. You must talk to her or James, they will be back in London soon, but I’m very happy for them.
‘I have seen the pictures of Alizee and James in St Barts. They look very happy. Alizee is very happy living in London.’
A friend added: ‘James and Alizee met in a bar. James offered her a drink and Alizee did not know who he was until her friend told her.
‘They have been dating for more than six months now and she has already spent time with his family in the family cottage. Things are getting serious between them.’
Alizee, who grew up in Germany, Indonesia, Chile, France, Belgium and England, is said to have been living in London for the past six years after graduating from Queen Mary University of London with a finance masters degree.
In 2015 James shared another black and white snap of himself as a child with his dog, thought to be called Tigger
