A new photo of a beaming Princess Charlotte has been released to mark the young royal turning eight.

The photo was taken by her mother Kate in Windsor this weekend and shows the second the Cambridges' three children smiling toward the camera.

It comes soon after a picture was released last month of Charlotte's younger brother Louis, happily sat in a wheelbarrow pushed by the Princess of Wales, to celebrate his fifth birthday.

Charlotte, Louis and and elder brother George all live in Windsor's Home Park with their parents.

All three are reportedly set to take part in King Charles coronation at Westminster Abbey on May 6, as the family prepares for the historic occasion on Saturday.

The siblings recently appeared in a photo captured by Kate with the late Queen that was released on what would have been the former monarch's 97th birthday, which showed her smiling with some of her grandchildren and great-grandchildren at Balmoral.
