Princess Charlotte about to turn 2; new photo released

Prince William, the Duke of Cambridge (R), his wife Catherine, The Duchess of Cambridge (L), Prince George (2nd R) and Princess Charlotte arrive to attend the morning Christmas Day service at St Mark's Church.

In the portrait, the toddler is definitely channeling her great-grandmother, Queen Elizabeth.

The photograph, which was taken in April at Prince William and Kate's residence in Norfolk, appears to be the continuation of a trend for the family. Her shiny chestnut locks are coiffed to the side with a navy blue bow as she plays with a toy in her hands.

The adorable tot is the second child of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, better known as Prince William and Kate Middleton.

"The Duke and Duchess are very pleased to share this photograph as they celebrate Princess Charlotte's second birthday", according to a statement from Kensington Palace.

"The royal family would like to thank you all for the nice messages it has received and hope you like it as much as this photo, " said Kensington Palace in another tweet.

Leonard's 37 points lead Spurs by Grizzlies 96-82
The Cavaliers improved to 9-0 in the first round since the return of James, who had 32 points, 13 assists and six rebounds. Leonard has been nothing short of incredible and could be the best player so far in the entire first round of the playoffs.

There are already bets being made that Kate Middleton is pregnant, or that she will be pregnant very soon. George has turned out to be a lovely little boy. This is not the first time the young princess has been dressed in John Lewis, she wore the brand's off-white Baby Wadded Snowsuit during a trip to the French Alps previous year. When they left, the royal children were clutching candy canes.

"She said that Charlotte is growing up really fast".

Britain's Princess Charlotte is pushed in a pram after her christening at St. Mary Magdalene Church in Sandringham, England, Sunday, July 5, 2015.

Experts at Brand Finance, a company that specialise in brand valuation have previously predicted that Princess Charlotte will be worth more than £3bn to the United Kingdom economy across her lifetime. The Irish Independent reported that Kate wasn't even there to help out when Pippa Middleton threw a "lavish pre-wedding party".
