Princess Charlotte of Cambridge full name Charlotte Elizabeth Diana was born on 2 May 2015 and is the younger child and only daughter of Prince William, Duke of Cambridge, and Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge. She is fourth in line of succession to the British throne, after her paternal grandfather, her father, and her elder brother.
On 5 July 2015, Princess Charlotte was baptized by the Archbishop of Canterbury at St. Mary Magdalene Church, Sandringham. Her godparents are The Hon. Laura Fellowes, Prince William’s maternal cousin; Adam Middleton, the Duchess’s paternal cousin; and family friends Thomas van Straubenzee, James Meade, and Sophie Carter.
On 1 May 2016, the Royal Family released photographs of Charlotte ahead of her first birthday. Multiple retailers, particularly in clothing, were expected to benefit greatly from their product placement in these photographs. On 2 May, Charlotte turned one, receiving gifts from 64 countries, including a book of Hans Christian Andersen fairy tales from David Cameron, and a £30,000 gemstone-studded white gold toy rattle from The Natural Sapphire Company of the United States.
On 11 June 2016, she made her first public appearance, which was on the balcony of Buckingham Palace during Trooping the Color, and in September of that year she accompanied her parents to Canada, where she was seen at arrival, at a children’s party, and at departure.
