Princess Charlotte shows a striking resemblance to her father, the Duke of Cambridge, in a new photograph released for her sixth birthday.
The portrait was taken in Norfolk this weekend by her mother, the Duchess of Cambridge. Passionate amateur photographer and patron of the Royal Photographic Society, the photos of the Duchesses are regularly published to mark the birthdays of her children.
Known for her mischievous showboating and pulling face in official photos, the last pic is quite the contrast with Charlotte smiling politely at the camera.
Perhaps she began to display some of the calmer, more thoughtful way of her father, Prince William, who she began to bear a striking resemblance to – though the long, flowing braids are clearly all of her. his mother.
The Cambridges have not shared the photo on their social media, as is customary practice on their children’s birthdays, as the family joins the sporting boycott of social media platforms to protest racism and abuse.
It comes after the couple celebrated their tenth wedding anniversary with the release of a family video taken last fall on the beach near the family home in Norfolk.
Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis were seen riding a swing together, before the family gathered around a fire to roast marshmallows.
Charlotte was dressed for the cooler weather in the video, while the new photo shows the smiling princess pictured outside wearing a dark blue short-sleeved dress with a pink floral pattern.
The casual look contrasts with the photos that marked Charlotte’s fifth birthday.
In 2020, she was pictured volunteering with her brothers and parents William and Kate helping load a van with food and delivering meals to those in need in Norfolk.
The full title of the birthday girl is Her Royal Highness Princess Charlotte Elizabeth Diana of Cambridge.
She was born at the Lindo Wing Private Maternity at St Mary’s Hospital in Paddington, central London, at 8:34 a.m. on May 2, 2015, weighing 8 lbs 3 oz.
