Kensington Palace Releases New Photos of Princess Charlotte for Her First Birthday

Ahead of Princess Charlotte's first birthday on May 2, Kensington Palace has released brand new photos of the little royal.

Taken by her mother Kate Middleton, the Duchess of Cambridge, in April, the pictures show the almost one-year-old playing at the family's home in Norfolk.

"The Duke and Duchess are very happy to be able to share these important family moments, ahead of their daughter's first birthday," a statement from the Palace reads. "We hope everyone enjoys these lovely photos as much as we do."

The couple also shared new images ahead of Prince George's second birthday in July.
