When a royal birthday rolls around, we can always guarantee some new photos to look forward to, and thankfully this weekend is no exception. To celebrate Charlotte’s 6th birthday on Sunday (May 2), Kensington Palace released an adorable snap of the Princess.

The candid photo, which was taken by the Duchess of Cambridge at their country home in Norfolk, shows Princess Charlotte beaming at the camera in a blue floral dress.

Unlike most of the family’s celebratory photos, the pic wasn’t shared to their Instagram account (@KensingtonRoyal) – because the Cambridges are currently taking part in a social media boycott related to issues within the football community. Instead, the photo was shared to the Royal Family's official Instagram account.

On her birthday last year, Kate and William shared photos of Charlotte helping to pack food parcels and deliver homemade meals to locals during the first wave of the COVID-19 pandemic. This year, however, the family is expected to enjoy some quality time together in Norfolk over the bank holiday weekend.

Charlotte’s birthday comes after a busy few weeks of highs and lows for the royals. The family have been in mourning over the past month following the loss of Prince Philip, who passed away in April aged 99.

But things have started to look up for the family. Kate and William this week celebrated their 10th wedding anniversary (can you believe it), while their youngest son, Prince Louis, marked a milestone of his own as he attended his first day of preschool.

To commemorate their anniversary, the Cambridges delighted royal fans with the release of a home movie. In the wholesome vid, the family can be seen at their Norfolk home toasting marshmallows on the fire and having fun at the beach.

Thankfully there’s more for the Royal Family and fans to look forward to this month. Baby Archie turns 2 on May 6, and just a few days later on May 19 his parents, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, celebrate their third anniversary. Congrats!
