After birthday: new photo of Princess Charlotte

In a Photo published directly on her birthday, she smiles with the same mischievous grin as her dad, Prince William (40). Now, a new, previously unseen picture was posted later in the evening and almost caused more of a stir as Charlotte is not alone in the photo.

The princess is lying in a flower meadow and beaming from ear to ear. In her arms she holds a black dog with brown eyes and cute floppy ears - this duo catches the attention of royal fans. 

These comments are common in the section: "What a treat! Two beautiful pictures." and "Absolutely stunning!"

Also interesting:

The photo is captioned, "Thank you for all the birthday wishes." The photo of Charlotte was not taken by amateur photographer Duchess Kate (41) but by photographer Millie Pilkington. "So honoured to have been asked to take your portrait Charlotte. And even more so that your parents have shared this. Thank you for making my shoot with you such fun. Your are as beautiful in character as you are in life," she writes in the comments.
