Kate Middleton certainly has a talent for photography.

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge have released a stunning image of their daughter Princess Charlotte, which Middleton herself captured.

The picture was taken at the family's home in Norfolk, Anmer Hall, in April. It was released to mark Princess Charlotte's second birthday on Tuesday May 2.

The picture shows Charlotte wearing a traditional Fair Isle cardigan beside a pile of hay from the hall's barn.

On Monday, Kensingon Palace tweeted out the image with the message: "The Duke and Duchess are delighted to share a new photograph of Princess Charlotte to mark her second birthday tomorrow."

The image was shortly followed by another tweet, which read: "TRH would like to thank everyone for the lovely messages they have received & hope that everyone enjoys this photograph as much as they do."

The birthday images seem to be becoming a tradition. Last year, the Duchess of Cambridge captured a series of images, also taken at their home in Norfolk, to mark her daughter's first birthday.
