Princess Charlotte's fourth birthday is being celebrated with the release of three new portraits taken by Kate Middleton. The princess, who is fourth in line to the throne, was photographed by the Duchess of Cambridge at Kensington Palace and Kate’s Norfolk home of Anmer Hall.
“The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are very pleased to share three new photographs of Princess Charlotte ahead of her fourth birthday tomorrow,” the palace said in a statement.
In one photo, Charlotte sits sweetly in the grass with her hands crossed over her blue flowered dress with a Peter Pan collar. In the other two pictures, Charlotte plays in the grass with a sweet grey sweater and tartan skirt.
Kate, one of the world’s most photographed people, often goes behind the lens and has released her own pictures on a number of occasions. She bucked tradition when she took the official photographs of newborn daughter Charlotte in 2015. The photos of Charlotte showed the young princess being cradled by George at William and Kate’s Norfolk home.
Just last week, the 37-year-old duchess released snaps of her youngest son Louis to mark his first birthday.
Charlotte's birthday will be spent at home privately where the family will celebrate. It's been a big year for Charlotte, who served as a bridesmaid at Meghan Markle and Prince Harry's wedding in May and then again for Princess Eugenie and Jack Brooksbank's wedding in October. Not to mention also appearing at younger brother Prince Louis' royal christening.
Happy Birthday, Charlotte!
