May flowers might be just around the corner, but do you know what’s here now? Princess Charlotte‘s second birthday. OK, technically, she turns two on May 2, but ahead of the big day, Kensington Palace released a photo of the adorable little girl, and all those sayings about time flying by certainly apply here because, holy moly, when did Charlotte get so darn big??
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.
In a nutshell, she’s gorgeous. Char looks so much older than when we last saw her toddling outside church after Christmas mass. Maybe it’s her hair, which looks significantly longer (is she using that horse shampoo Jen Aniston swears by?), or perhaps she just looks a lot like her great-grandmum Queen Elizabeth II did when she was little. Whatever the case, Charlotte’s cute as a button (we can’t even with that sheep sweater) and that smirk makes it look her mischievous ways were just interrupted. Love it!
Kate herself took the pic at the couple’s place at Anmer Hall, and what we wouldn’t give to look at the photos on that phone of hers. For now, we’ll just have to settle for some of our favourite pics of Charlotte.
