Last night, Kensington Palace said: “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.”

The Princess recently appeared with her family clapping for healthcare workers during the Clap for Our Carers event in the UK. The family of five appeared on their doorstep and applauded the NHS and healthcare workers who are on the frontlines of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Charlotte attends Thomas’s Battersea alongside her older brother, Prince George. Due to the ongoing pandemic, the children are being homeschooled by their parents like many other children across the country.

Princess Charlotte is the second child and only daughter of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and is fourth in the line of succession. She’s the first British princess to not be overtaken in the line of succession by the birth of a younger brother.

She has one older brother, Prince George, 6, and a younger brother, Prince Louis, who just turned two last month. George will turn seven in July.
