A nonsense tweet on the Kensington Palace Twitter account briefly prompted speculation over Prince George had got his hands on the royal iPad.

Others questioned whether the Twitter account itself had been hacked. But the unusual tweet was deleted soon afterwards and there were no further similar messages.

The message, just a series of letters, appeared just minutes after the Palace shared the first official portraits of Princess Charlotte.

The tweet, which would have appeared in the twitter feeds of the Palace's more than 480,000 followers, prompted the Mail Online to ask "Did George get hold of Mummy's iPad?"

Kensington Palace issued four images of Princess Charlotte on Saturday, taken by the Duchess of Cambridge in mid-May at Anmer Hall, the family's home in eastern England.

The images showed Charlotte dressed in a white sweater and propped up on a pillow, cradled by Prince George, who turns 2 in July.

Charlotte was born May 2 and is fourth in line to the throne.
