But that was just the beginning of the birthday celebrations, as Kate Middleton and Prince William's middle child is set to mark the occasion in the best way possible - with a 'rowdy party'.
Author Julia Donaldson - known for creating the popular children's books The Gruffalo – discovered the young Cambridge's plans when she picked up her CBE for her services to literature on Thursday.
She told ITV: '[William] he said it was Princess Charlotte's birthday and she was going to have a rowdy party.'
We have no doubts Prince George and Prince Louis' sister will be showing off her dancing skills, because that's her favourite thing to do.
The Duke of Cambridge previously opened up about Charlotte's favourite pastime.
He once said: 'My daughter Charlotte loves dancing.'
We wonder if Charlotte's favourite food will be served at her bash?
During a royal appearance earlier this month, Kate admitted that her young daughter ‘loves olives’. What a fancy snack for a four-year-old!
Apparently, Charlotte and her brother, George, also love making ‘cheesy pasta’ and enjoy creating their own pizzas because they get to make their own dough.
‘They love it because they can get their hands messy,’ Kate previously said.
Can we get an invite?
