As well as liking unicorns, having her hair braided and ballet dancing, Princess Charlotte is an active child who loves playing tennis, horse riding, searching for creepy crawlies and exploring the great outdoors.

Just last year, she excitedly confessed to Sir David Attenborough that she very much likes spiders, while Kate was once overhead reminding William that Charlotte loves tractors just as much as George!

William and Kate won’t have gone overboard when it comes to birthday presents, but royal expert Katie Nicholls predicts there will be plenty of excitement planned.

“There won’t be rooms full of expensive gifts. The Cambridges are careful not to spoil the children, so the presents will likely reflect Charlotte’s love of the outdoors. But with the rule of six now in place, the family will be delighted to spend the day amongst friends outdoors.

"It will be wonderful for Charlotte to have a proper tea party, with a lovely cake baked by Kate, rather than yet more celebrations purely on Zoom. One thing we do know is that birthdays are always a fun occasion in the Cambridge household!”

It’s thought the Cambridge’s were hoping to spend this bank holiday weekend at their country home at Anmer Hall on the Sandringham Estate in Norfolk.

“Charlotte loves the beach in Norfolk and of course she and her siblings have got new ponies at Anmer Hall to enjoy as well,” says Katie, adding that “Charlotte will help groom her pony and muck out too. It’s all part of instilling those values that keep her grounded.”

Princess Charlotte was born at 08:34 BST on 2 May 2015 in Lindo Wing of St Mary's Hospital, London. Several landmarks were illuminated pink to mark her birth, including Tower Bridge, the London Eye, and the Trafalgar Square fountains; there were also gun salutes at Hyde Park and the Tower of London.

On 4 May, her name was announced as Charlotte Elizabeth Diana, honouring her great-grandmother Queen Elizabeth II and grandmother Diana, Princess of Wales.

She has been affectionately called "Lottie" and "Mignonette" by her parents.

As she celebrates her sixth birthday today, Princess Charlotte is already stepping out of her big brother Prince George's shadow, ready to shine in her future role on the royal stage.

Over the years we’ve seen Charlotte blossom from cheeky toddler to head-strong little lady, who doesn’t let George or younger brother Prince Louis cramp her style!

“It seems like only yesterday, the world's press were standing outside St Mary’s Hospital in London, waiting to meet Princess Charlotte. She’s definitely the most outspoken of the Cambridge children, because she’s got a huge personality,” says Katie.
