Happy birthday, Princess Charlotte!

In honor of Charlotte's 7th birthday on Monday, proud parents Kate Middleton and Prince William have released new photos of the princess — snapped by mom Kate.

"The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are delighted to share three new photographs of Princess Charlotte ahead of her seventh birthday tomorrow," the couple said in a statement on Sunday.

The sweet portraits were taken in Norfolk this weekend by Kate, who also just celebrated her 11th wedding anniversary with William on Friday.

Charlotte, who is the spitting image of dad William in the photos, is all smiles as she poses in a field of bluebells near the family's country home, Anmer Hall. In one photo, she hugs the Cambridges' new dog. William and Kate adopted a cocker spaniel into their family from a litter raised by Kate's brother James Middleton in late 2020 after the death of their beloved dog Lupo.
