A photograph of Princess Charlotte has been released by Kensington Palace to mark her second birthday tomorrow - and she looks so grown up.


The picture, which was taken in April by her lovely mum, the Duchess of Cambridge, shows the princess at the family's home, Anmer Hall, in Norfolk.


The royal couple released a similar photograph of Charlotte last year to celebrate her first birthday. 


Kensington Palace shared the picture on various social media accounts, and said they "hope that everyone enjoys this photograph of Princess Charlotte as much as they do".



In the gorgeous picture, little Charlotte is wearing a knitted yellow cardigan with a sheep motif and a navy bow clip in her hair - looking remarkably like her big brother, George. 


Typically, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge tend to keep their daughter out of the public eye as much as possible, but she was pictured on Christmas Day at a church service. 


The palace said in a statement: "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."


Princess Charlotte is set to be a flower girl at her aunt Pippa Middleton's wedding in May, while her brother, Prince George, will be a page boy at the ceremony (we can't wait to see the pictures).

The family are said to be throwing a party for the little Princess tomorrow afternoon. 


Happy Birthday Charlotte.
