The palace released new photos of Princess Charlotte on her 4th birthday, and she looks so much like the queen
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!
