The photo, posted to Instagram, shows young Charlotte beaming as she looks into the camera.

She is lying in a field of daisies and cuddling the family’s cocker spaniel, Orla.

The happy Princess is dressed in light blue jeans and a blue and white striped sweater as she snuggles the black pooch.

The post was captioned simply: “Thank you for all the birthday wishes.”

Photographer Millie Pilkington took the snap in the gardens of the Windsor Estate in Berkshire.

Charlotte turned eight yesterday and her father marked the occasion with a new photo of her relaxing on a wicker chair before releasing another today.

Online commenters were quick to add to the birthday wishes and express their admiration for the young royal.

One wrote: “Happy Birthday sweet Charlotte, have the happiest fun-filled day.”

Another added: “What a lovely photo. Happy Birthday Charlotte.”

Meanwhile, a third said: “Such a darling girl. The perfect mix of mum and dad.”

It comes after readers were granted a look inside Charlotte’s lavish life, including her stylish wardrobe and £800,000 doll house.

Meanwhile, the family released previously unseen photos of her and her brother George with “Grandpa King” Charles.
