Princess Charlotte’s first birthday isn’t until Monday, May 2 but Kensington Palace kicked off the celebrations early, releasing four new images, taken by HRH The Duchess of Cambridge at their family home in Norfolk.
The new photos show Charlotte wearing a blue collard dress with matching tights and white cardigan. She can be seen walking with the aid of a baby walker filled with blocks in a similarly styled pink outfit, while another image shows her standing, holding on to the side of a chair.
Kensington Palace said the Duke and Duchess were “delighted” to share the new photos. Royal watchers would remember seeing Charlotte sitting on the Queen’s knee in a recent photo marking the Queen’s birthday last month and before that at her christening last July.
“The Duke and Duchess are very happy to be able to share these important family moments and hope that everyone enjoys these lovely photos as much a they do,” the palace said in a statement.
