LONDON -- Kensington Palace officials have released new photos of Princess Charlotte ahead of her first birthday.
The daughter of Prince William and the Duchess of Cambridge turns one-year-old on Monday. A palace statement said Sunday the photos were taken by the Duchess in April at their country home.
It says William and Kate "are very happy to be able to share these important family moments and hope that everyone enjoys these lovely photos as much as they do."
Last week, officials released a photo featuring four generations of the Royal Family heirs, and all eyes were on the littlest of them all.
Prince George is pictured alongside his father Prince William, grandfather Prince Charles and great-grandmother Queen Elizabeth II in stamps issued to mark the queen's 90th birthday.
