New Photo Of Princess Charlotte Released To Mark Her 9th Birthday

A new photo of Princess Charlotte has been released to celebrate her ninth birthday. The picture was published on social media by Kensington Palace.

Princess Charlotte is shown beaming as she leans against a fence covered in pink flowers. With her long hair draped over her arm, she is wearing a red cardigan, short denim skirt and tights.

An accompanying message reads: “Happy 9th Birthday, Princess Charlotte! Thank you for all of the kind messages today.”

But the Princess was upset by the controversy surrounding their Mother’s Day portrait, which she admitted had been edited at home before its release.

Since then, they have opted not to share such images with news and picture agencies in advance.

Instead, as they did for Prince Louis’s 6th birthday on April 23, they have simply shared the birthday photograph directly via social media.

In the latest image, Princess Charlotte is wearing the same cardigan she wore in the Mother’s Day portrait. The Prince and Princess have often sought to dress their children in the same clothes in a bid to avoid undue focus on their fashion choices.

Third in line to the throne, Charlotte attends the co-educational private Lambrook School near Ascot in Berkshire and loves dancing, especially ballet and tap.

She has a reputation for being feisty compared with her elder brother Prince George, the Princess once admitted that her daughter was “the one in charge”.

The youngster was spotted reminding George to bow to the coffin of their late great-grandmother, Elizabeth II, at her state funeral, and she kept Prince Louis in check during Trooping the Colour by placing her hand over his to calm his over-enthusiastic waving to the crowds from the carriage.

This time last year, Charlotte was preparing for her grandfather the King’s coronation, during which she processed through Westminster Abbey hand in hand with Louis.

She wore a mini-me version of her mother’s silver bullion, crystal and silver thread headpiece by Jess Collett x Alexander McQueen.

The dress was McQueen with an ivory silk crepe cape, decorated in rose, thistle, daffodil and shamrock motifs – emblems which also featured on her mother’s dress.

The young Princess was last seen in public on Christmas Day when she walked to church with her family and second cousin Mia Tindall at Sandringham.
