The images, posted to Kensington Palace's official Twitter account on Sunday (1 May), were taken by Charlotte's keen photographer mum, Kate Middleton, at the family's Anmer Hall estate in Norfolk in April.

A rep for the palace said Kate and William were "delighted" to release the images to the public, adding: "The Duke and Duchess are happy to be able to share these family moments, ahead of their daughter's first birthday."

"We hope that everyone enjoys these lovely photos as much as we do," added the rep.

We do!

Princess Charlotte was born on Saturday, 2 May, 2015 at the Lindo Wing at St Mary's Hospital in Paddington, London, where her elder brother George was born two years earlier.

Her full title is Her Royal Highness Princess Charlotte Elizabeth Diana of Cambridge. She is fourth-in-line to the throne behind grandfather Prince Charles, father Prince William and brother Prince George.

Kate and Willis personally thanked the public for their support following her birth, with a message from Kensington Palace saying: "The Duke and Duchess are hugely grateful for the messages of congratulations they have received from people all over the world.

"It means a great deal to them that so many people have celebrated the arrival of their new daughter."

Happy birthday, Charlotte!
