This has been a post to point out why Kitty Bennet is adorable and lovely and how even though everyone ignores her she is actually so relevant to Pride and Prejudice because she changes as well as Lizzy. Despite the fact so short a time has gone that she is wearing the same dress in both pictures, her expressions and interactions with Lydia shows how she has grown up and isn’t as naive anymore, and you don’t need to be a huge fan of Kitty, but you’ve got to at least respect her for that.
