Charlotte, who turns eight tomorrow, gave a toothy grin while sitting on a white wicker chair.
The Princess of Wales, a keen photographer, regularly receives plaudits for her snaps of her three children, which she shows to the world on their birthdays.
It comes as unseen photographs of Charlotte and Prince George with King Charles have delighted royal fans after being revealed.
The family pictures were aired on Sunday during the BBC documentary, Charles R: The Making of a Monarch.
One of the candid shots captures the King and Prince George bonding at a Royal picnic over a glass of juice.
King Charles is pointing to something out of the frame, while his little grandson looks intently in the same direction.
Another sweet moment showed him holding up a toy to Princess Charlotte when she was only a tot.
Although it was photographed from the side, it is obvious Charlotte is laughing at her playful grandfather.
These memories were broadcast while an old interview with the King played.
He spoke fondly about his grandchildren, and how they inspire him to protect the planet for the next generations.
He said: “I mind so much about the future, what we’re going to leave to our children and grandchildren. That’s what really gets me going.”
The interactions were praised by supporters online.

One wrote: “So nice to see this cute relationship that King Charles has with his grandchildren.”
“Grandpa King is adorable!,” commented another, “It’s very precious,” they added.
“Look how adorable they are. He is such a wonderful grandpa! So glad they have him around and vice versa.” Agreed a third.
Simon Young, the BBC’s head of history, said of the documentary: “It’s a real privilege to be trusted with such rare, unseen archive material to create a new and distinctive portrait of someone so famous and photographed.”
