"Princess Charlotte had a lovely day and your message was greatly appreciated by the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge who send you their very best wishes." An adorable photo of Charlotte surrounded by flowers was also included in the envelope. 

It remains unknown exactly how Princess Charlotte celebrated her special day, but it's been reported that she spent the occasion at Amner Hall, the Cambridge family's Norfolk residence. 

A source told US Weekly that Kate and William were keen to make an extra special effort for Charlotte's seventh birthday, after two years of lowkey parties during the COVID-19 pandemic. It's understood that she had two celebrations - one at Amner Hall for family and another at Kensington Palace for her classmates at Thomas's Battersea. 

“It was the first birthday party Charlotte has had with all her friends,” the source revealed. “She’s such a popular little girl and loved every minute of being center of attention.”
