Princess Charlotte has recently celebrated her 5th birthday and the special occasion was marked with the release of some brand new pictures of the adorable royal.
On Saturday, through Kensington Palace's official Instagram account, the Royal Family revealed two particularly sweet portraits of Charlotte that show how much she has grown.

SHE IS GETTING SO BIG
According to the posts, the pictures were taken by none other than the Duchess of Cambridge, Kate Middleton, who is known for her passion for photography.
In both photos, Charlotte, also known as Lottie by her loved ones, can be seen wearing a black-and-white checkered dress with ruffled details around the collar.
With a mysterious smile on her face, the Princess stares at the camera as if full of confidence, perhaps fully aware that it is her big day and she is the star.
"Kate revealed that they keep themselves quite busy by homeschooling and entertaining their children"
In the second photo, however, Charlotte appears to be much more relaxed as she can be seen looking down while holding a bag of homemade pasta.
HELPING THOSE IN NEED
Still, that wasn't just any homemade pasta. In fact, that was a part of Princess Charlotte's volunteering efforts amid the COVID-19 pandemic, which were also documented and shared.
The day before her birthday, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge shared a couple of photos of Charlotte doing her part by packing and delivering goods to older residents in Anmer Hall, Norfolk.
In the adorable snaps, the five-year-old appears to be handling several white packages containing food and knocking on people's doors before handing them out.
The Cambridges have been staying at Anmer Hall, their country home, during the pandemic but the royal parents still have their hands full while in quarantine.
During an interview with BBC, Kate revealed that they keep themselves quite busy by homeschooling and entertaining their children, which can be exhausting due to their great stamina. She said:
"You get to the end of the day and you write a list of all the things you've done in that day. You've pitched a tent, take the tent down again, cook, bake, you get to the end of the day."
