Aaaand the first pictures of the Princess of Cambridge were released by the Kensington Palace ahed of her first birthday celebrated today, May 2. The four photographs of Miss Charlotte that already made the tour of the world and left everybody “Awww” were not taken by some hired professional photographer, but by The Mom herself, the Duchess of Cambridge.
The adorable pictures were taken in April and show the little royal playing and posing at their family 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,” read a statement on the royal family’s official Facebook page. “We hope everyone enjoys these lovely photos as much as we do.”
The Duchess has become the unofficial photographer of her young family on her own, having previously released pictures of her daughter and her son together last year. And we could not be happier for this, as she has proven to do a very good job in making our hearts melt at the view of the two precious kids.
Here are some of the best photographs of the royal family, captured at their home in Norfolk, during ski holidays or at the Kensington Palace.
Happy first Royal Birthday, Princess Charlotte!
