Princess Charlotte is growing up so fast! 

On the Facebook page for the British royal family, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge recently released a new photo of Charlotte, who turns 2 on Tuesday, May 2. 

“The photograph was taken in April by The Duchess at their home in Norfolk,” read a Facebook announcement about the picture. “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.”
