Prince Harry and Meghan Markle send 'lots of love' to birthday girl Princess Charlotte

It’s a day of celebration at Kensington Palace and everyone is getting into it. The official royal Instagram page posted a series of new pictures of Prince William and Kate Middleton’s daughter, Princess Charlotte for her fourth birthday on their Instagram. The sweet photos got a lot of love from their followers and fellow royals. Charlotte’s aunt and uncle Prince Harry and Meghan Markle left a sweet note in the comments section. “Happy Birthday Charlotte! [cake emoji, balloon emoji] Lots of love, H and M xo,” the note from the official Sussex Royal Instagram account read.

The sweet message from the parents-to-be came after royal watchers noticed that the Sussex royal account no longer follow any members of the royal family. There’s no rift, as the Duke and Duchess have decided to use their platform to highlight various causes. The little Princess’ birthday portraits, posted to mark her big day on May 2, were extra special as they were shot by her mother Kate Middleton.
