The four photographs were taken in April at their family home in Norfolk.

The princess, who turns one on Monday, is seen walking - with the aid of a baby walker filled with blocks - for the first time in one of the images.

Kensington Palace said the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge were "delighted" to share the new pictures of Princess Charlotte.

The princess was last seen in public at her christening last July - the first time the Cambridges had been seen as a family of four.

Photographs of the princess have been released sporadically, with several released when she reached six months.
