The photographs were taken by the Duchess of Cambridge, who has become something of an official royal photographer after photographing many of the children’s birthday celebrations. Royal fans have been ecstatic to see more of the Cambridges in recent weeks, particularly Prince George and Princess Charlotte, who stunned the world with their rapid growth spurts and apparent grace and maturity.
“Charlotte is an absolutely beautiful little girl who is growing up so quickly!” wrote Instagram user Crownjuls64.
Other fans praised the Duchess’s photography skills on Twitter, with one user saying: @flyingboomerang “Omg,” someone tweeted. It’s extremely valuable. Princess Charlotte, happy birthday!
“Once again, The Duchess of Cambridge excels at capturing precious and candid moments with her children.
“Thank you so much for sharing the milestones of your children with us.”
Many royal fans have compared the Princess to both her great-grandmother the Queen and her father Prince William as a young girl, with some users debating who she resembles more.
