Kate And William Release Sweet New Photo Of Princess Charlotte

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge shared the photo of their 6-year-old for a very important cause.

Kate Middleton and Prince William released a new photo of Princess Charlotte over the weekend for a very important cause.

On Sunday, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge shared a picture of the 6-year-old cradling a butterfly.

The caption alongside the photo read: “We wanted to share these beautiful Peacock and Red Admiral butterflies as part of Big #ButterflyCount initiative taking place across the UK.”

“@savebutterflies are encouraging us all to count these incredible creatures because not only are they beautiful creatures to be around but they are also extremely important,” the caption continued. “Butterflies are vital parts of the ecosystem as both pollinators and components of the food chain. Hopefully you can beat last year’s total, @savebutterflies.”

The family recently released a new photo of Charlotte to mark her sixth birthday on May 2.

In the picture, taken by Kate at the family’s home in Norfolk, the grinning little one bears a striking resemblance to her great-grandmother, Queen Elizabeth.
