Kate Middleton has been putting her art degree to good use this summer.

The Duchess of Cambridge has reportedly spent the past summer drawing portraits of her two children Prince George (two) and Princess Charlotte (four months).

It's reported that she has been occupying her time with her new hobby at her country estate, Amner Hall in Norfolk.

According to the Daily Mail, she has been sketching from photographs of her eldest child, who is too boisterous to sit for a portrait session with his mother.

Her passion for art may have been reignited, but the 33-year-old is keeping her cards close to her chest having only shown a handful of friends her sketches.

It's not the first time the Duchess has taken inspiration from her children having taken their official photos in June and released to the world for publication.

Kate has taken a hiatus from public life in recent weeks, but is expected to return to the spotlight on Wednesday for a dinner at the Queen's estate in Balmoral, Scotland, honouring her historic reign as Britain's longest serving monarch.
