Kensington Palace officials said the tiny princess, who is the daughter of Prince William and the Duchess of Cambridge, received letters and gifts from 64 countries for her first birthday.

Among the presents, she received a jigsaw from President and Michelle Obama, as well as a soft toy modeled on the White House dog, Bo.

British Prime Minister David Cameron gave her Hans Christian Andersen's Fairy Tales, while the prime minister of Canada, Justin Trudeau, sent a snowsuit and a book, according to The Associated Press.

The new photos of Charlotte were taken in April at Anmer Hall in Norfolk.
