Duke and Duchess of Cambridge release new snaps of Princess Charlotte to mark her fourth birthday

Kate Middleton and Prince William's only daughter has captured the hearts of the nation (and the world) every time we've gotten a glimpse of her. See our collection of Princess Charlotte's other most adorable moments so far, here...

She is no longer the youngest of the Cambridge clan following the arrival of Prince Louis, but Princess Charlotte doesn’t seem like she’s going to give up the limelight any time soon.

The little royal often takes centre stage as she plays up to the cameras and gives us a very professional royal wave.

Born Charlotte Elizabeth Diana, she was introduced to us all on the front steps of the Lindo Wing on 2nd May 2015.

Kate, Duchess of Cambridge was reported to be in labour at around 6:30am as the whole world was waiting on word that we had a new baby Prince or Princess in the British Monarchy.

The youngster was born at 8:34am and slept peacefully all the way through her big debut at 6.30pm that evening (and we can’t say we blame her, having been born just 10 hours earlier).

And how gorgeous was she? Dark haired like her mum with rosy-red cheeks, and wearing a teeny white bonnet to protect her from the evening chill, little Charlotte was every inch the perfect princess – and she’s become more and more adorable ever since.

From her first public appearance at Trooping the Colour in that puff-sleeved pink dress, to her balloon-bashing antics during the Cambridge’s tour of Canada, we’ve rounded up some of the cutest Princess Charlotte pictures to date, and you can rest assured that we’ll be adding in all of the latest shots just as soon as they emerge.

You may have seen these photos a thousand times by now, but we bet you want to see them over and over again. In fact, we’re not sure we’ll ever tire of looking at those happy parents and proud big brother with their little one – after all, we’re still not bored of looking at Prince George’s first pictures either!
