Princess Charlotte had a “lovely” sixth birthday. Prince William spoke about his daughter’s recent celebration while visiting Babcock’s Vehicle Engineering business in Walsall, West Midlands on Tuesday, May 4. Jenna Jackson, the company’s lead HR business partner, asked the Duke of Cambridge if Charlotte enjoyed her birthday. According to HOLA! USA’s sister brand HELLO!, the royal dad of three said, “She had a lovely day, thank you.”
William added, “Last year it was her birthday in lockdown, but this year we were able to have one other family over. They grow up very fast. It was great fun.”
Charlotte turned six on Sunday, May 2. To mark her birthday, a new photo of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge’s daughter was released. The picture was taken by mom Kate over the weekend in Norfolk, where the Cambridges’ country home Anmer Hall is located. Charlotte was photographed outdoors wearing a floral button-front dress from Rachel Riley.
The image was not shared on William and Kate’s social media accounts because the Duke, who is president of the Football Association, joined the football community in a social media boycott “in response to the sustained abuse received online by players and many others in the football community.” However, the British royal family’s official accounts posted the portrait writing: “Wishing Princess Charlotte a very happy sixth birthday today. 🎈.”
