Birthday girl Princess Charlotte is six years old today and mum Catherine has taken a beautiful portrait to mark the occasion.
Charlotte beams for the camera in the carefree shot, her loose long hair apparently lightened by the sun.
The picture was shared on the Instagram account for The Royal Family, with a brief message: “Wishing Princess Charlotte a very happy sixth birthday today. 🎈”
The image has not been shared by the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge as they are participating in a social media boycott.
It is customary for a portrait of the young birthday royals to be shared each year. On Charlotte’s fifth birthday, this adorable image was released.
