Princess Charlotte is shown walking, or nearly walking, in a couple of the photos.

The Duke and Duchess released a similar photograph of their son Prince George when he was walking at the same age.

Princess Kate reflected on her daughter just before the Queens 90th birthday in a documentary by ITN: “The Queen was really thrilled that it was a little girl, and I think as soon as we came back here to Kensington she was one of our first visitors here,” Duchess Kate said. “It’s very special having a new little girl.”

She added, “I feel very, very lucky that George has got a little sister.”

Prince William expressed his sentiments about his growing family shortly after Princess Charlotte’s birth. “It has been fantastic and she has been a little joy of heaven,” he said. “But at the same time, it is more responsibility, looking after two little ones, especially when George is around. He’s a little monkey”
