Princess Charlotte is giving us major queen vibes in her new birthday portraits. The palace has released a trio of new photos taken by Kate Middleton for Charlotte’s fourth birthday on Thursday, May 2nd. And from their captivating gazes to their sweet smiles, Charlotte is looking a lot like her 93-year-old great grandmother, Queen Elizabeth.

Charlotte and her great-grandmother share the same striking eye structure–from their matching blue eyes to the arch of their eyebrows. The young royal also has light brown hair (before her hair turned a regal shade of white, Queen Elizabeth’s hair was a very similar shade).

Here’s all three new portraits of Charlotte.

And here’s one of her great-grandmother (with little sister Margaret).

The royal relatives both share a love of bright flower patterns (and shades!). The queen is also often spotted wearing colorful ensembles while performing her many public duties.

Charlotte is also a budding equestrian. While attending an event to meet and honor British Olympians at Buckingham Palace in October 2016, Kate revealed that Charlotte already has developed a love of horses—just like her great-grandmother, Queen Elizabeth.

Happy Birthday, Charlotte!
