And while her parents Kate Middleton and Prince William are no doubt prepping for a family celebration, they've kicked things off early this year.

Prince William and the Duchess of Cambridge will be celebrating the second birthday of their second-born child, Princess Charlotte, tomorrow.

Her parents marked the occasion Monday by distributing a snapshot of Charlotte taken by her mother, the Duchess of Cambridge.

A new picture of Princess Charlotte enjoying the outdoors, taken by her mother, has been released ahead of her second birthday.

In the adorable photo, the princess wears a blue hair clip and a yellow-and-blue sweater with sheep on it.

The very natural-looking image features the little girl in a rural setting, with hay bails in the background.

Happy almost-birthday, Princess Charlotte! The only daughter of Kate Middleton & Prince William turned 2 years old on May 2, and we could not be more excited for the royal family to celebrate!

The princess, whose birthday is Tuesday, was named Charlotte Elizabeth Diana in tribute to both her late grandmother Diana, Princess of Wales, and her great-grandmother, Queen Elizabeth II.

The young princess was last seen with her family as they attended a Christmas Day church service in Bucklebury, a village outside of London where Kate's family reside.

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

Princess Charlotte has more than just her birthday party to look forward to this month; she'll reportedly be a bridesmaid - British weddings typically put children in this role - when her aunt Pippa Middleton weds James Matthews on May 20.

They too were taken by Kate and revealed that little Charlotte was already walking, as she pushed a toy trolley full of colourful bricks. Charlotte was also present on the family's tour of Canada last fall.

After moving to London, Prince George will be schooled at the private Thomas's Battersea school, his sister, probably, will be sent to a nursery later this year.
