Being fourth in line to the royal throne isn’t easy, but Princess Charlotte makes it look fun. The goofy middle child to Prince William and Kate Middleton always seems to be having a splendid time in all of the photos taken of her over the years. Looking at every photo of Princess Charlotte shows that she is full of personality.

It’s hard not to see that shine in her photos. From making funny faces (which she was keen on doing as a child) to striking a pose whenever the situation calls for it, Princess Charlotte is no stranger to being in front of the cameras. But as a member of the United Kingdom’s royal family — and with her older brother, Prince George, set to be king in the future — being in front of the camera is something she will be doing for the rest of her life.

Princess Charlotte Elizabeth Diana of Cambridge was born on May 2, 2015 at St. Mary’s Hospital in London. From her first appearance outside of the hospital in her mom’s arms to her latest birthday portrait, taken by Middleton, Princess Charlotte has always seemed like such a happy, fun, girl.

These photos prove that.

Princess Charlotte’s resemblance to her great-grandmother Queen Elizabeth II has been observed since she was small, and her appearance at her Majesty’s Platinum Jubilee was no exception. There were a few moments when her royal composure cracked a little bit — particularly during the flyover at the Trooping the Colour.

We can’t blame her: those planes are loud.

In April 2022, 6-year-old Princess Charlotte went full spring pastel when she made her royal Easter debut for church service at St. George's Chapel in Windsor Castle. This was the first time the young princess, who arrived holding her dad Prince William’s hand, attended Easter services with the royal family. (Prince George’s first time, too!) For the big day, she wore pale blue tights and a dress in the same color, matching her mom’s blue dress coat. Naturally she topped her look with a navy cardigan as is often her wont.

All Grown Up

Celebrating With Mom & Dad

Prince William and Kate Middleton celebrated their tenth wedding anniversary in April 2021, and they seemed to spend the day hanging out with their three kids at their country home of Anmer Hall. And Princess Charlotte looked like she was having a grand time running around with her dad.

Princess Charlotte Is 6!

Charlotte’s crooked smile and blonde hair are too adorable, and are proof of how much she has grown throughout the years.

Red Carpet Ready


The little girl walked the red carpet alongside her parents and brother to watch a special pantomime performance in December 2020. Of course, she looked so put together.
