The Royal 2016: Charlotte turns one
Princess Charlotte in one of four photos released to mark her first birthday on May 2nd
What a difference a year makes. Princess Charlotte of Cambridge turned one on May 2nd and starred in some special photos taken by her mum to mark the occasion. All birthdays are special for the family involved but when you're a royal princess and fourth in line to the throne, your first big day is going to get lots of attention. That's just what happened to Charlotte Elizabeth Diana on May 2nd 2016 - here's a look back at the first birthday of a princess.
Princess Charlotte of Cambridge was born on May 2nd 2015 at the Lindo Wing of St Mary's Hospital, Paddington. A year on, Charlotte was snapped by her proud mum in the weeks leading up to her birthday and the photos were shared on Twitter just ahead of the big day.
Charlotte is seen walking along behind a wheeled toy as well as climbing on chairs and occasionally sitting on them. And looking every bit as determined as big brother George.
She is the image of Prince William in these latest photos celebrating her birthday. Mum Kate might be on the front cover of Vogue but Princess Charlotte of Cambridge has added some world famous photos of her own to the royal album when she turned one.
