GALLERY: New photos of Princess Charlotte

Yes, you know who we're talking about. Princess Charlotte actually turns 1 on Monday, but there's nothing wrong with previewing the party. 

Charlotte's mom, Kate Middleton, also known as the Duchess of Cambridge, snapped these photos in April at the family home.

Besides being pretty adorable, the photos show how fast Princess Charlotte is growing. It's the first time the world has seen her poised to take her first steps.
