Princess Charlotte is five on May 2 and in keeping with royal tradition Prince William, 37, and Kate, Duchess of Cambridge, 38, have shared new photos of their daughter to mark the milestone. The gorgeous snaps were taken last month and show Charlotte delivering food parcels to vulnerable members of the community self-isolating at home near the Cambridges’ Norfolk residence Anmer Hall.
Princess Charlotte looks grown-up in a black and white houndstooth dress and grey tights and is captured helping drop care packages of fresh food on people’s doorsteps.
In one of the photos, she is seen knocking on a pensioner’s door holding up a bag of fresh pasta which Kate made with the children the day before.
The Cambridges got soaked as they made their rounds in communities near Queen’s Norfolk estate.
The four new pictures of Charlotte were taken by the Duchess in April and as well of the shots of Charlotte doing her bit for the community, they include a portrait of Charlotte smiling and looking straight at the camera.
The photos of Charlotte follow a string of new portraits Kate took of Louis to mark his second birthday last month.
Louis was captured playing with rainbow paints while in the process of making a colourful tribute to the NHS.
The Duchess’ new pictures of Charlotte are clearly community-focussed and send a subtle message to Britons.
While Kate and William are spending lockdown at their gorgeous stately home, they clearly want to reassure the nation they are still doing their bit.
By delivering care packages with their young children William and Kate clearly wish to instil in them a sense of public duty from a young age.
Last week Charlotte delighted fans as she led her family out on to the doorstep at Anmer Hall to clap for the NHS.
Charlotte was the first family member to commence the clapping and the sweet clip was broadcast as part of the BBC’s Big Night In.
A body language expert has claimed Charlotte’s confident behaviour shows she is already being instructed in the ways of royal duty.
Body language expert Alison Ward told Express.co.uk: “Bless Charlotte, she couldn’t wait to get out front to do her job of starting off the clapping for all our key workers and front line people.
“The royal couple are clearly teaching her the importance of following a job through and doing it well to be of service to the nation.”
Alison added: “Princess Charlotte looks behind her to check her at one point to check her family are all doing a good job of clapping and following her lead.”
According to Alison, Charlotte’s calm and collected behaviour shows she is being raised to be a strong female leader.
Alison said: “Charlotte is being brought up to be a strong, assertive woman for sure.”
The Duchess of Cambridge is a keen home chef and previously revealed she enjoys making her children’s birthday cakes.
Speaking to chef Mary Berry in a BBC Christmas cooking special, Kate said: “I love making the cake.
“It’s become a bit of a tradition that I sort of stay up until midnight with ridiculous amounts of cake mix and icing, I make far too much, but I love it.”
Princess Charlotte will spend her special day in lockdown at Anmer Hall but will likely receive well wishes from other Royal Family members via video calls.
