New Photo of Princess Charlotte Is a Nod to Princess Diana

In celebration of their daughter, Charlotte's second birthday on May 2, Will and Kate released a new photo of the little princess.

The portrait, which was taken earlier this spring in Norfolk by the Duchess of Cambridge, shows Charlotte wearing a soft yellow sweater with her hair pulled back by a navy blue bow. It also features a nod to Charlotte's grandmother, Princess Diana.

Diana was known for her love of novelty print sweaters, and in 1981, she wore a vibrant red pullover featuring black and white sheep, not unlike the blue ones on the collar of Charlotte's cardigan.

A touching happenstance? Maybe. Kate is clearly a fan of Fair Isle patterns (Prince George wore one in the royal family's Christmas greeting in 2015). But she's also known for paying sartorial tribute to her late mother-in-law, and this feels like more that just a coincidence.
