Princess Charlotte shows her walking skills in 1st birthday photo

Princess Charlotte has shown what a big girl she is in new photos taken by mum Kate to celebrate her first birthday on May 2. Released on Sunday (May 1), the adorable fourth-in-line to the throne toddles along using a rolling toy to keep her steady while outside her parent's home in Norfolk.

Dressed in a pink floral dress with a lace peter pan collar, a pink cardigan and Early Days 'Emma' shoes, the adorable princess looked delighted with herself as she pushed a brightly coloured stroller through the large gardens. The princess' precious look was completed with a pink bow clip in her dark brunette hair.

Kensington Palace shared the picture on Twitter, confirming that it was indeed Kate who took the photos of her daughter playing outside their Anmer Hall home in Norfolk. They wrote: "The Duchess took these pictures of her daughter in April at their home in Norfolk.

Princess Charlotte will turn one on Monday.

"The Duke and Duchess are happy to be able to share these family moments, ahead of their daughter's first birthday."

The Duchess, who is a keen photographer, also took the first official solo photos of Princess Charlotte back in November, which showed her laughing while playing with a teddy bear.
