The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, Prince William and Catherine, have released a new photo of their daughter Princess Charlotte.

The photo was taken in April by Kate, the Duchess of Cambridge, to celebrate Charlotte's second birthday on May 2.

It was taken at William and Kate's home in Norfolk.

In a statement Kensington Palace said: "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, and hope that everyone enjoys this photograph of Princess Charlotte as much as they do."

Only a handful of photos have been publicly released of the girl, whose full name is Charlotte Elizabeth Diana, after her grandmother Diana, princess of Wales, and her great-grandmother the Queen.
