Princess Charlotte Turns 2-Years-Old

Happy birthday, Princess Charlotte!

In honor of Charlotte’s second birthday on May 2, proud parents Prince William and Princess Kate released a new photo Monday morning — and it is royally adorable.

Photographed by her mom Kate in the grounds of the family’s Norfolk home, Anmer Hall in April, Charlotte’s longer hair is held back by a navy bow from one of Kate’s favorite children’s stores, Amaia, and her bright yellow cardigan is suitably spring-like.

In a statement, her parents said they were “delighted to share” the snap and thanked “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.”

The little princess’s birthday will be spent at home “privately” where there will be a family celebration. 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.

It has been a big year for Charlotte. She traveled on her first royal tour in September, and the world got their first glimpse at her fun and independent personality during her first public playdate in Canada.
