Saturday, May 1st 2021—Ahead of her sixth birthday tomorrow, Kensington Palace have released this new photograph of Princess Charlotte. Kate snapped the photo herself this weekend at the family’s Norfolk home.
William and Kate have chosen not to post this image to their official social media channels this weekend as a sign of support for the ongoing #SocialMediaBoycott campaign:
This Bank Holiday weekend football and other sports will stage a social media boycott in response to the rise of hate-filled social media posts aimed at players and officials. The campaign is calling for the UK government and social media companies to do more to tackle online hate.
The picture shows Princess Charlotte outside wearing a Rachel Riley dress (credit for ID: Bethan Holt). The pretty piece features puffed sleeves, a peter pan collar and a floral print in contrasting colours on a navy blue background. It’s finished with pink ric-rac trims and matching buttons. The piece is made from 100% cotton and retails for £59.
