Just over a week after her little brother Prince Louis turned two, Princess Charlotte is celebrating her fifth birthday. Although the Cambridge family are currently isolating in Norfolk, Kate is expected to use a hobby she is “very keen” about to share the occasion with the rest of the country. Royal commentator Richard Fitzwilliams spoke to Express.co.uk about how the Duke and Duchess have achieved the “balance they’ve always wanted to strike”.
He said: “What has been very popular is the way they have released photographs of their children.
“This is a way to keep the public in touch and also preserve privacy.
“The balance is one they’ve always wanted to strike.
“We’ve got Charlotte’s birthday coming up where she’s going to be five. We should expect more photographs.”
Mr Fitzwilliams continued: “Kate is also a dab hand at this, she’s very keen at photography and she’s a good photographer.
“So expect photos from time to time which keep the press and public up-to-date with the younger members of their family.
“You had charming photos from the Chelsea Flower Show last year.
“Also traditionally, but of course not this year, Trooping the Colour is big in the calendar.”
The royal commentator added: “These are various ways to keep the public in touch with their family.
“But they also release very charming and formal photos from time to time, which are very popular.
“There’s no question that the way the Cambridges are handling things so well.”

Ms Mollard told listeners: “She always makes the cake for her children herself.
“She loves cooking for all the family, despite the fact that they’ve got plenty of staff to do that for them.
“She loves making a meal for William.
“I’d love to see a picture of one of her cakes one day.”
