William and Kate shared a new photo of Charlotte to mark her birthday

While the Cambridges were marking the day in private, William and his wife Kate followed tradition by sharing a new birthday portrait of their daughter with the public.

In the photo, taken by the Duchess, Charlotte was pictured in a floral dress by one of Kate's go-to childrenswear designers, Rachel Riley.

The royals usually share official images on their Twitter and Instagram accounts, but last weekend William took part in a social media boycott in a stand against racism and abuse online.

Taking to Twitter, the future King explained: "As President of the FA I join the entire football community in the social media boycott this weekend. W." Charlotte's birthday portrait was therefore not shared on their platforms.
