The birthday celebrations for Princess Charlotte continue!

In celebration of the young royal's fifth birthday on Saturday, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge released four new photos of their only daughter.

And now, they have shared an extra previously unseen photo of the young royal to thank fans for their birthday wishes.

The gorgeous snap shows the little princess holding a packet of fresh pasta, as she was helping to prepare food parcels to deliver to vulnerable members of the community self-isolating at home near the Cambridges' Norfolk residence Anmer Hall.

According to the royal's official Instagram account, the photos - which were shot by Kate Middleton - were taken last month.

According to delighted residents, the entire Cambridge family spent two and a half hours driving around to deliver food.

One resident said: "They got drenched as it was pouring with the rain but I think they just wanted to do their bit."

Happy birthday Princess Charlotte!
