Happy birthday, Princess Charlotte!

In honor of the royal’s fourth birthday on May 2, proud parents Kate Middleton and Prince William released three new photos of their daughter on Wednesday.

“The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are very pleased to share three new photographs of Princess Charlotte ahead of her fourth birthday tomorrow,” the palace said in a statement.

Photographed by mom Kate in April on the grounds of the family’s Norfolk home, Anmer Hall, and at Kensington Palace, Charlotte — who goes by the nickname Lottie — shows off her playful side.

In one of the photos, Charlotte sits sweetly in the grass with her hands crossed over her blue flowered dress from Trotters with a Peter Pan collar — and adorable retro-style navy canvas shoes. Mom Kate also styled her hair with a matching navy bow.

In the other two snaps, Charlotte is full of energy with her hair pulled back in a ponytail in her tartan-style dress by Amaia — and it has quickly become one of her favorites. The royal also wore it during a recent playdate with big brother Prince George and her cousins.

The little princess’s birthday will be spent at home privately where there will be a family celebration. Her big day comes after a public holiday for May Day in the U.K, so her family and friends will have no trouble getting time off to help the royal family celebrate the little one.
