New Photo of Princess Charlotte Is a Nod to Princess Diana
The portrait was released in honor of the young royal's second birthday.

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.
