Princess Charlotte's new portrait released to celebrate 2nd birthday

When the Royals showed of a picture of Princess Charlotte, aged two, the entire world took one look at the picture and said, 'Awwwwww!' Charlotte is too small to be seen in public often, a year ago we could see the adorable princess on a handful of occasions like Christmas Day and in Canada while the Cambridges' official tour. It's not surprising that Kate took the official photo to mark Charlotte's second birthday on the protected grounds of the family's country estate.

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".

In the photograph, Charlotte is wearing a yellow Fair Isle cardigan with blue sheep around the neck and her hair is pulled to the side in a barrette.

Unlike her brother, who hammed it up for his close up at the same age, Charlotte appears more reserved in front of the camera.

But while Charlotte is undeniable cute in the picture, her cardigan is what's got people talking.

In the photo the young prince, now three, can be seen grinning cheekily in his father's arms in the gardens at Sandringham House, the Queen's private residence in Norfolk.

When he turned two in 2015 Prince George's official birthday photograph was taken by renowned Italian photographer Mario Testino taken at the christening of Princess Charlotte.

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.

Charlotte was photographed on Christmas Day while at a church service in Bucklebury village, located in Berkshire.

Her older brother Prince George, is expected to bring in £2.4bn. And the littlest royal is gearing up for another big role when she walks down the aisle as a bridesmaid in aunt Pippa Middleton's wedding on May 20. She's the spitting image of her great-grandmother, Queen Elizabeth II, who is Britain's current monarch. Charlotte was also present on the family's tour of Canada last fall.
