Princess Charlotte of Cambridge is two on May 2nd and being an organised young royal, she's got the official birthday portrait out of the way early leaving plenty of time for cake and balloons on the big day itself. On Bank Holiday Monday, the littlest princess of the House of Windsor starred in a new snap, taken by her mum, to mark turning two. And very nice it is, too.
The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are delighted to share a new photograph of Princess Charlotte to mark her second birthday tomorrow. 🎈 The photograph was taken in April by The Duchess at their home in Norfolk. The Duke and Duchess are very pleased to share this photograph as they celebrate Princess Charlotte's second birthday. Their Royal Highnesses would like to thank everyone for all of the lovely messages they have received, and hope that everyone enjoys this photograph of Princess Charlotte as much as they do.
Charlotte Elizabeth Diana, by the Duchess of Cambridge, was posted on Twitter and Instagram on May 1st with a message saying that the fourth in line to the throne's parents were 'delighted to share' a new photo of their daughter to mark her birthday. It was an online sensation, bringing in over 175,000 likes in just six hours.
Charlotte has only been seen a handful of times in public since her birth on May 2nd 2015 at the Lindo Wing of St Mary's Hospital in Paddington. After making her global debut in her mum's arms at just ten hours old, we next got a glimpse in official photos and at her christening. Charlotte has also got her first Trooping the Colour under her cosy cardie, appearing on the balcony in 2016, while her appearances at a children's party while touring Canada with her parents and on the way out of church last Christmas showed her mum isn't joking when she said Charlotte is the boss in the Cambridge house. This latest photo has all the hallmarks of a confident little girl, playing merrily and pausing just long enough for one snap for mum. Two years old, Charlotte of Cambridge is taking it all in her royal stride.
