It was accompanied by a message saying the family “would like to thank everyone for the lovely messages they have received and hope that everyone enjoys this photograph as much as they do.”

The toddler is generally kept out of the public eye, but has made a handful of appearances, notably during a trip to Canada last year.

She is due to be a bridesmaid and her older brother George will be a page boy at their aunt Pippa Middleton’s wedding on May 20.
