While we’ve been saying she looks like a young Queen Elizabeth for years, royals enthusiasts have spotted Princess Charlotte’s uncanny similarity to another royal.
Following her appearance at Prince Louis’ christening last week, royal fans couldn’t help but notice the three-year-old bears a remarkable resemblance to her late grandmother, Princess Diana.
“Wow, I had not realised they looked so much alike,” one commentator wrote on social media. Another added, “I have been saying — for a while now — that Charlotte is going to look a lot more like Diana than anyone thinks”.
Of course, fans were also quick to point out how Charlotte has inherited her great-grandmother’s looks, too.
“I actually think Princess Charlotte bears a striking resemblance to the Queen,” one commentator said. Another agreed, saying: “Smile yes, but I think she resembles the Queen”.
While Charlotte never got to meet her grandmother, they may still share a special bond in their love of dancing.
The Duchess of Cambridge revealed last year that Charlotte had taken up dance lessons. She was greeting representatives of charities which were close to Diana’s heart and checking out the tributes left at Kensington Palace on the 20th anniversary of the late princess’ death when she made the uber-cute revelation. “She absolutely loves it,” she said.
Of course, Diana loved a turn on the dance floor more than anything, and there are plenty of photos of her taking her dancing shoes for a spin. In fact, the photos where she is dancing may just be the ones where she looks her happiest – except for of course when she was with her beloved sons.
Diana took up dancing when she was just a little girl like Charlotte too, studying ballet, tap, contemporary, and jazz, and later, was involved in a lot of fundraising for the English National Ballet.
