The official Kensington Palace Twitter account tweeted Sunday ahead of the princess’ birthday, “The Duke and Duchess are delighted to share new photographs of Princess Charlotte,” and went on to share four pictures of the young royal that were taken by her mother, the Duchess of Cambridge, last month.

On Monday, Charlotte’s birthday, Will and Kate released a statement to share their thanks for the first birthday gifts that they’ve received for Charlotte.

“The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are incredibly grateful for all the letters, gifts and good wishes they have been fortunate to receive in the year since Princess Charlotte was born,” reads the palace statement.

Among the gifts that Charlotte received was a jigsaw puzzle from President Barack Obama and First Lady Michelle Obama, who also gave her a soft toy version of their Portuguese Water dog, Bo.

Charlotte is the fourth in line to the throne, behind her brother Prince George, father William, grandfather Prince Charles and great-grandmother Queen Elizabeth. Her uncle, Prince Harry, is currently fifth in line to the throne.
