The charismatic three-year-old delighted royal fans when she proudly waved from outside the Lindo Wing as Prince William took her and Prince George to see the newborn.
Unlike her older brother George, Charlotte embraced the limelight – proudly waving and smiling to the hordes of cameras outside St Mary's Hospital.
And today Charlotte had another opportunity to shine, just nine days after her new brother's birth.
Kensington Palace wrote on Twitter: "Wishing a happy third birthday to Princess Charlotte – thank you all for your lovely messages!"
The message was accompanied by an angelic picture of Charlotte with a red coat and pink woollen scarf as she was dressed for her first day of nursery.
Fans quickly responded to the cherubic vision, with Barb writing simply: "Personality girl – happy birthday Charlotte."
While Georgia Makitalo added: "Happy Birthday Princess Charlotte! She has a lot of confidence and sass..and I cannot wait to see what she will be like when she grows up!"
The adorable child has attended Willcocks Nursery School in London since January this year.
The nursery is rated "outstanding" by Ofsted and its ethos is "for high standards, excellence and good manners".
Princess Charlotte – whose middle names are Elizabeth Diana – was one of Louis' first visitors, with their great-grandmother Her Majesty making the trip yesterday.
The tot has also made history thanks to the Succession to the Crown Act of 2013 – which means Charlotte became the first female royal to retain her claim to the throne.
The Queen was yesterday seen holding a bunch of spring posies as she left a chopper transporting her from Sandringham to near Kensington Palace, where Prince William, Kate and Louis have returned.
Her Majesty had been staying at Windsor Castle and so had not yet the opportunity to visit the young prince.
There was furious speculation over the name of the young tot, with bookies favouring Arthur and Albert before Louis was finally announced on Friday, four days after the birth.
The name is thought to have been a tribute to Louis Mountbatten, Prince Philip's uncle, who Prince Charles has described as the "grandfather I never had".
