Prince William and Kate Middleton have shared an adorable photo of Princess Charlotte taking part in a butterfly conservation campaign, taken by her mum in Norfolk.

The royals are proudly supporting the Big Butterfly Count campaign, a UK-wide survey aimed at assessing the health of our environment by counting the amount and type of butterflies.

Kate Middleton and Prince William posted a picture of their six-year-old daughter on Twitter gently cupping a Red Admiral butterfly in her hands.

Wearing a blue top and flowery pink bottoms, Princess Charlotte stares intently at the beautiful butterfly nestled in her outstretched hands.

The princess, who looks more like her famous parents every day, carefully holds up the beautiful creature for the photo.

They also shared two stunning images of Peacock and Red Admiral butterflies perched on purple buddleia bushes.

The couple's tweet read: "We wanted to share these beautiful Peacock and Red Admiral butterflies as part of Big £ButterflyCount initiative taking place across the UK.

"Butterfly Conservation are encouraging us all to count these incredible creatures because not only are they beautiful creatures to be around but they are also extremely important. Hopefully you can beat last year's total @savebutterflies!"

The annual campaign is run by Butterfly Conservation and is due to come to an end on Sunday.

Since July 16 Brits have been invited to download a chart showing all sorts of butterflies and moths from the charity's website.

They are then advised to choose an outdoor spot, watch for 15 minutes and then record what species they see.

Royal fans gushed over the new snaps, with one Twitter user commenting: "The care she is taking with the butterfly in her hands shows so much empathy."

Another added: "Magical pictures. A world of wonder for little children. Beautiful photos guys!"

The snaps are the latest in a series of pictures taken by Kate, including a gorgeous picture of Prince George perched on the bonnet of a Land Rover Defender last month.
