Traditionally, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge have released new photos to celebrate their children's birthdays. This year, however, a photo of Charlotte , before her first day of nursery school, with a message wishing her happy birthday. The reason? The family just welcomed a new member, Prince Louis, just a few weeks ago, so they might be a little busy. They also may be planning to share a photo of the new baby with his siblings in the next few weeks.
"William and Kate won't want to overexpose their children," royal expert Penny Juror told . "They have never been entirely conventional so I imagine they might release a photo in their own time, and it might be one Kate takes herself."
So, until we get new photos of the royal fam, take a look back at these adorable pics of Princess Charlotte, in honor of her third birthday.
Hello, world! Zzzzz!
I like this hat, mom.
Who's this guy?
Hey, what are you looking at?
Yeah, I'm in here.
World's prettiest mom.
But I certainly look cute!
Look at me, I'm one year old!
I think I'm going to make bows my signature look.
I should probably start working on my turn-around-and-wave move.
Yeah, that'd really hook 'em.
Those airplanes are THIS BIG!
What's he doing up here?
I'm basically 70% cheeks at the moment and I think I'm going to lean into it.
I'm thinking of taking up a musical instrument.
Mummy, are those...
Oh my God.
Hi everyone, this is my wave!
Aw, stop that, thank you!
Hey! Is George calling me a loser?!
It's like a baby cane.
Look at my baby cane, mummy!
Yes, I already have really good hair.
