Prince William and his wife Kate have released a photo of Princess Charlotte ahead of her 2nd birthday, which People reports will be spent "privately" at home. The photo taken by the Duchess of Cambridge was distributed Monday, one day before Charlotte turns two. It shows Charlotte on the grounds of Anmer Hall, the family's country home, wearing a yellow cardigan sweater decorated with images of sheep, reports the AP.

The family is expected to spend more time in London in the coming years. Their London base is at Kensington Palace. Charlotte's older brother, Prince George, 3, plans to attend a London school in September. As for the next big thing for Charlotte, the BBC notes she'll be part of the wedding party for Pippa Middleton's May 20 nuptials. (More Princess Charlotte stories.)
