Princess Charlotte beams in an adorable new photo released of the young royal to celebrate her sixth birthday.

Princess Charlotte turns six on 2 May, but a beautiful photo of the youngster has been released by her parents, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, ahead of the special day.

The stunning image sees Charlotte showing off a wide grin with her long hair falling down past her shoulders.

Looking strikingly similar to mum Kate, Charlotte looks beautiful in her birthday photo and wears a Rachel Riley floral dress in blue and pink.

The image was taken by the Duchess of Cambridge over the weekend at their Anmer Hall residence in Norfolk.

Taking photos of her children on special occasions has become somewhat of a tradition for the Duchess, 39, and it was only last month that Kate shared some adorable images of youngest Prince Louis as he turned three.

Some beautiful photos of Princess Charlotte were released for her fifth birthday by the Duchess too, and saw the young royal in a gingham dress helping to deliver packages to pensioners in their local area amid the coronavirus pandemic.

Prince William and Kate Middleton will not be commemorating Princess Charlotte's sixth birthday on social media after they joined a social media boycott.

The couple, who shared a video showing their sweet family life, are supporting big name football clubs by staying away from Instagram, Facebook and Twitter for four days.

Prince William, 38, tweeted on his official Kensington Royal twitter: "As president of the FA [Football Association] I join the entire football community in the social media boycott this weekend. W."

And the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge have had a lot to celebrate lately, what with Prince Louis and Princess Charlotte’s birthdays, but also their tenth wedding anniversary.

The royal couple beamed with delight in stunning photographs taken by Chris Floyd at Kensington Palace this week.

Kate can be seen grinning at her husband as she nuzzles into his chest in one snap, while they gaze into each other's eyes in the second.

They got engaged in October 2010 during a holiday in Kenya while their wedding took place on 29 April 2011 in Westminster Abbey.

The ceremony was televised for the world to see, with 26 million Brits tuning in to watch and around 300 million worldwide. Kate looked beautiful in a custom made Alexander McQueen dress, while William looked every inch the handsome Prince as he married his fairytale bride.
