Looking back, some of the best birthdays we ever celebrated were those of our childhood. But as for arguably the world’s most famous four-year-old, Princess Charlotte? Well, it seems her birthday bash will go above and beyond.
In an adorable confession, Prince William revealed the plans for his young daughter’s fourth birthday, which she celebrated on May 2. According to children’s author Julia Donaldson, who recently received her CBE (Commander of the Most Excellent Order of the British Empire) from William, the royal reportedly described his daughter’s birthday party to her.
“He said it’s his daughter’s birthday today and he loves the book. He reads my stories to his children, and he said he was going to have quite a rowdy party — he’s got a lot of children [coming to the party],” she told ITV News. We wouldn’t mind an invite to this party ourselves!
Taking to Instagram, none other than expectant royal parents Prince Harry and Duchess Meghan wished the four-year-old a “Happy Birthday” underneath an adorable new snap of the princess shared by Kensington Palace. In what’s become a bit of a trademark for the 37-year-old mom-to-be, the comment included a cake and balloon emoji and read: “Happy Birthday Charlotte! Lots of love, H and M xo.”
The message came just a week after Harry and Meghan shared a similar message to Prince Louis for his first birthday, which was celebrated last week. The Sussexes signed off their message with the line “Love from both of us,” which basically confirmed the pair haven’t welcomed their royal baby yet. Some believe Meghan has now passed her due date, and royal fans are on high alert as the duchess is expected to go into labor at any moment.

Thank you for the lovely messages for Princess Charlotte’s fourth birthday! The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are very pleased to share three new photographs of Princess Charlotte ahead of her fourth birthday. The photographs were taken in April by The Duchess at Kensington Palace and at their home in Norfolk.
That said, no one was going to steal Charlotte’s thunder on her big day — especially after Kensington Palace released the adorable new snaps of the Princess, which were taken by her mum Duchess Catherine at their home in Norfolk and at Kensington Palace.
And with all eyes on the royals at present, we’re pretty sure the princess has been surrounded with love as she rings in her fourth year.
