Royals Celebrate Charlotte’s 2nd Birthday

The Royal Family just shared a sweet photo of princess Charlotte in advance of her second birthday, which is actually tomorrow, May 2nd.

Charlotte Elizabeth Diana, named in honor of her grandmother Diana, Princess of Wales and her great-grandmother the Queen, looks adorable with her light brown hair in a bob pulled back by a blue clip, rosy pink cheeks, and a twinkle in her eye. The photo was taken by her mom, the Duchess, Kate Middleton, according to The Royal Family’s Facebook post.

“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.”

This is not the first time Middleton has shown her keen photography skills. She shared photos she took of Charlotte when she was just six months old, as a thank you to the media for allowing the family some privacy.
