With their birthdays only days apart, fans of the royal family got a second dose of new pictures from the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge.
Just 10 days after Kate Middleton shared three new photos of their youngest son, Prince Louis, for his first birthday, she is doing the same for Princess Charlotte’s big day.
It’s amazing how much can change in just a year:
As the official Instagram for Kensington Palace writes, the Duke and Duchess are sharing the new photos of their only daughter in celebration of her fourth birthday on May 2.
The palace acknowledged that like most of the photos taken of the three young royals, Kate was the woman behind the camera snapping the images:
The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are very pleased to share three new photographs of Princess Charlotte ahead of her fourth birthday.
The photographs were taken in April by The Duchess at Kensington Palace and at their home in Norfolk.
Many of those who follow the social media page are calling Princess Charlotte a “Mini William.”
