Princess Charlotte, tiniest of the royal family, has turned one today.

Among her many presents, there’s an 18k gold rattle littered with diamonds valued at £30,000, silk figurines and a classic 19th century Chinese novel.

Tomorrow is also special because yet another princess turns one.

Francesca Marina was born in the middle of the Mediterranean during an overnight rescue operation by the Italian navy on 3 May 2015.

Fondly referred to as the “princess of the migrants” Francesca's birth was seen as a bastion of hope for the helpless. She and her mother were taken to a reception centre in Sicily.
