Prince William and Duchess Kate Middleton Share New Photos In Honor Of Princess Charlotte’s 7th Birthday


As we get older, we see the passing of time by watching our children and our friends’ children get older. Age is easier to see as babies become toddlers and toddlers become older children, and children become teenagers who look too much like adults. Where did the years go?

Case in point. Do you remember the royal wedding between Prince Williams and Kate Middleton? It was a big deal. It was a celebration. Now the couple has three children, and their middle child, Princess Charlotte, is celebrating her birthday. She is 7 years old.

Charlotte’s birthday is on May 2nd, and the weekend before her birthday, Charlotte’s mom, Duchess Kate Middleton, took photos in honor of the birthday girl.

We remember Princess Charlotte as a cute toddler, but now she is looking a lot more grown up. These photos show Charlotte sitting in a field of purple flowers. She has a huge smile on her face. She is all by herself in the photos with one exception. The family cocker spaniel, Orla, is in one of the pictures with Charlotte.

Watch the video below to see these pictures for yourself and to learn more about the young princess.

Even though their children are members of the royal family, William and Kate have both said that they want their children’s lives to be as normal as possible. Charlotte and her older brother, Prince George, both attend Thomas’s Battersea Prep School in London. Besides attending school, Charlotte also likes riding horses and gymnastics. Back in 2020, Kate explained during an interview, “Charlotte is really into gymnastics, she’s doing cartwheels, handstands, everything. It’s so good for their basic skills of balance and coordination.” 

Do you agree with Hoda Kotb that Charlotte looks just like her father, Prince William? Would you recognize Charlotte in these photos if you didn’t know ahead of time who it was?
