Kensington Palace releases new photo of Princess Charlotte

"The Duke and Duchess are very pleased to share this photograph as they celebrate Princess Charlotte's second birthday". William and Kate brought Charlotte and her older brother, Prince George, on the trip and Charlotte even attended a children's party.

Visits to the website of British department store John Lewis spiked as parents clamoured to get their hands on the £10 jumper Princess Charlotte wears in her birthday photo.

The new photo was taken in April by her mother on the grounds of the family's countryside home in Norfolk, England.

Prince William and the Duchess of Cambridge will be celebrating the second birthday of their second-born child, Princess Charlotte, tomorrow.

When Charlotte was last photographed in public, she was being carried in her mother's arms to Christmas Day service at the small chapel in the village of Bucklebury where her grandparents Carole and Michael Middleton live. She's dressed in what has become "Charlotte style", in a cardigan sweater in yellow decorated with blue sheep, over a blouse or a dress with a Peter Pan collar.

Princess Charlotte is now fourth in line for the throne.

Happy almost-birthday, Princess Charlotte! Her big day comes after a public holiday for May Day in the U.K, so her family and friends will have no trouble getting time off to help the royal family toast the little one.

Our favorite part of the royal Canadian tour was when the family-of-four showed up to a children's party in Victoria, British Columbia on September 29.

Princess Charlotte's life spans just two years, but what a remarkable life it is.

Judging by the glimpses of Charlotte with Kate, Prince William, and Prince George when the family is out on royal engagements and this she's more than ready for the job. The adorable brunette will likely steal the show as she plays bridesmaid at her aunt Pippa Middleton's wedding later this month.

The pretty little royal is undeniably the spitting image of her great-grandmother, our reigning monarch, Queen Elizabeth II, when she was young.

The Duchess of Cambridge was photographed with her daughter during their royal tour of Canada in October 2016.

"I really enjoyed the opportunity to take these photographs of Prince George".
