Can you believe that it has been one whole year since the last Great Kate Wait? We can’t. It’s been quite a year here at WWKD, and undoubtedly it’s also been quite the year for the Cambridge family as they have watched Princess Charlotte grow into a healthy, happy toddler. It seems like only yesterday we were sharing this image…
Princess Charlotte was born at 8:34 AM on Saturday, May 2nd. Her Little Royal Highness weighed 8 pounds, 3 ounces. She is the fourth in line to the throne, behind her grandfather, daddy, and big brother, George. Princess Charlotte made her first official appearance only a few short hours after entering this world. Alice was the front-runner for the princess’ name before her birth, but utimately, William and Catherine chose a traditional name that honors her British heritage. The name “Charlotte” means “free woman” and honours her grandfather – Prince Charles. Queen Charlotte was the 18th century consort to King George III. Elizabeth is obviously after her Great-Grandmother, the Queen, and Diana after her late Grandmother.
As we wish the small Princess a very Happy Birthday, we look back to the photos we have been fortunate to see of Charlotte over the last year. We have been treated to quite a few glimpses of the Princess!
What will the toddler be doing to celebrate her birthday? Celebrating at home with her parents and brother, likely her extended family as well. What does one get for a Princess’s birthday? We like to think these could some of the small trinkets that could be possible as gifts for the small Princess:
