They grow up so fast!
Princess Charlotte, daughter of Prince William and Kate Middleton, is celebrating her fifth birthday on Saturday and looks sweeter than ever in a series of new photos!
And this year, the pics released of the sweet royal are extra special because they were taken while the family was packing and delivering food. Along with the images, the @KensingtonRoyal account penned:
“The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are very pleased to share four new photographs of Princess Charlotte ahead of her fifth birthday tomorrow.
The images were taken by The Duchess as the family helped to pack up and deliver food packages for isolated pensioners in the local area.”
Ch-ch-check them out for yourself (below):
And after receiving plenty of bday wishes, they shared a second photo to Instagram:
Happy birthday, Charlotte!
We can only assume Lottie’s birthday party plans were halted due to the coronavirus, but we’re sure she still enjoyed a special day at home with mum, dad, Prince George, and Prince Louis!
A source previously shared with Us Weekly what the Cambridges have been up to while in quarantine:
“Kate bakes and decorates cakes with the kids [on] the weekend to keep them entertained. The kitchen is always a complete mess by the end of it, but it’s all part of the fun — that’s how Kate sees it. They also enjoy gardening together and planting seeds.”
Despite being in self-isolation for quite some time, the fam of five are doing their best to keep spirits high:
“Kate counts her blessings that the kids get on so well. George has been helping Charlotte with her gymnastics and they’ll spend hours practicing cartwheels, headstands and other moves together. Louis tries to join in too!”
And being a future King doesn’t come in the way of daddy duties! Prince Charles‘ eldest son has also been keeping his kids busy while at home, says a second insider:
“Kate is mainly in charge of the home-schooling and playtimes, but William is also very involved too. He teaches them lessons and organizes games.”
Sounds quite nice!!
Kate and William have done their best over the years to raise their brood in as normal a situation as possible despite their high ranks in the royal family. A confidant previously explained more about their “natural” parenting style:
“It was natural and lovely. That’s just how they are. They know what’s coming [as they near the throne] and want to give their kids as normal a start as possible.”
