Happy birthday Princess Charlotte Elizabeth Diana of Cambridge.
Today Kensington Palace released four new pictures of the young Princess and she looks absolutely precious.
Charlotte wears two outfits in the images, one pink and the other blue; it is the first time I remember seeing her dressed in blue.
The photos were all taken by Kate in Norfolk at the family’s country home this April, and released in advance of Charlotte’s first birthday tomorrow. In the image below you can see Lupo playing in the background. (At least we believe it is Lupo.)
Charlotte is darling in the pictures; her big eyes are still blue, and Kate managed to capture a nice range of facial expressions.
It is always fascinating to look at a child’s face over time. Below you see Charlotte with big brother George in June last year, at her christening in July, in photos taken by Kate in November of last year, in a Christmas card picture from last December, on the family’s ski trip in March, in a photo for the Queen’s 90th birthday and then the new image released today.
I enjoyed seeing the similarities between George and Charlotte at roughly the same age.
Here are a few mother-daughter moments from the past year.
And two more recent pictures.
We share all the details about what Charlotte is wearing in this post at our sister site, What Kate’s Kids Wore. If short on time these two graphics visually sum up the info for you.
And her pink outfit.
