Prince William and Kate Middleton have released a new portrait of Princess Charlotte.

Today, the middle child of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge is celebrating her 9th birthday.

«Today, on May 2nd, Princess Charlotte turns 9 — just a week after her brother Louis celebrated his 6th birthday. On that occasion, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge also shared a fresh snapshot with their younger heir. And just half an hour ago, they posted a new photo of Charlotte on their official social media account.

In the picture, the princess poses with her hair down and in a relaxed outfit: a denim button-up mini skirt and a red cardigan over a dark blue sweater and a shirt with a floral print. As tradition dictates, the portrait was once again taken by Princess Catherine, who has been photographing the children herself for many years.

«Happy 9th Birthday, Princess Charlotte!» — captioned the photo Kate and William. — «Thank you for your kind wishes.»

«Comments on the post are indeed filled with warm congratulations addressed to young Charlotte.

«Happy Birthday, Princess! Have a wonderful day!»

Lottie, as many of us called her in her early childhood, is an incredible, kind, generous, and well-mannered princess. I hope she’ll have a wonderful year ahead in her life.

«Some followers have compared Charlotte to her father, the future King of the United Kingdom, William.

«She’s a spitting image of William!»

«She looks so much like her dad…» they write.»

It’s noteworthy that between the celebrations of Charlotte and Louis’s birthdays, the Waleses also marked their 13th wedding anniversary and shared an archival wedding portrait dating back to 2011. Meanwhile, Charles’s son gave a rare comment about his wife’s health condition, as she is currently undergoing treatment for cancer.
