Princess Charlotte, six, looks the spitting image of her great-grandmother the Queen

Royal enthusiasts have gone wild over Princess Charlotte’s striking resemblance to her great-grandmother, the Queen.

A photograph of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge’s daughter, who turns six today, was released by Kensington Palace to mark the occasion.

Princess Charlotte appears happy and relaxed in a floral summer dress, with her long hair loose and tousled in the picture, taken this weekend in Norfolk, by her mother Kate.

Delighted royal fans rushed to point out the family resemblances, noting how similar Princess Charlotte often looks to her great-grandmother, the Queen.

One person wrote on Twitter: ‘I’ve always said I see so much of Her Majesty, The Queen, in little Princess Charlotte. She’s got the Queen’s eyes!’

Another wrote: ‘She really is a Windsor! Such a gorgeous girl!’, while a third added: ‘I’ve always thought Princess Charlotte was a mix of the Queen and Prince William.’

The new photo shows the smiling princess pictured outdoors while wearing a dark blue short sleeved £59 dress with a pink floral design from British children’s clothing brand Rachel Riley.

Royal fans compared the portrait to one of the Queen, then Princess Elizabeth, when aged six, showcasing Princess Charlotte’s uncanny resemblance to her great-grandmother. 

In a portrait released of the Queen when at the same age of her great-granddaughter, Her Majesty can be seen sporting the same charming smile.

The young Princess Elizabeth wore a stylish headband and ruffled ballet dress in the photograph.

But it’s not just this year’s portrait where the similar features can be spotted, with photographs of Princess Charlotte and the Queen when at the same age repeatedly showing their likeness.

For instance, when aged four, a picture of Princess Charlotte showed the young royal holding a flower as she ran through a field, similar to a snap of her great-grandmother at that age.

A young Princess Elizabeth was photographed playing in a field of flowers on June 3, 1930, when also aged four.

Although Princess Charlotte’s parents have always fiercely protected their children’s privacy, restricting the number of photocalls they take part in each year for instance, they have been more relaxed of late. 

During lockdown, they shared their experiences of homeschooling, with Prince William admitting it was ‘a bit of a nightmare’ and joking that he struggled with Year 2 maths.

Along with her brothers, Princess Charlotte was pictured clapping for carers during the first lockdown and delivering packages of homemade pasta to isolated pensioners on the Sandringham Estate.

In a video with David Attenborough, Princess Charlotte was heard declaring: ‘I like spiders. Do you like spiders too?’

The new photograph follows the release of a video of Princess Charlotte with her brothers, Prince George, seven, and Prince Louis, three, and their parents to mark the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge’s 10th wedding anniversary last week. 

It showed the family enjoying time outdoors at their Norfolk residence Anmer Hall and on sand dunes at a nearby beach. 

In the video, Princess Charlotte was seen playing and toasting a marshmallow on a camp fire.

The clip, which offers fans a glimpse into the royal family’s home life as Prince William and Kate climb sand dunes and toast marshmallows with their three children, was shared online this afternoon.

Kate opted for a red jumper with her recycled Marguerite Blouse by Sezane and a pair of skinny jeans for the video.

Combating the cold weather during part of the clip, the duchess sported her favoured Dubarry Friel Utility Jacket, thought to have cost £299, as well as a stylish £95 hat from Hicks & Brown.

Princess Charlotte complemented her mother’s look, wearing a Ralph Lauren jumper and a ruffle-neck blouse with skinny jeans, teamed with £259 Penelope Chilvers boots.

The youngest of the clan, Prince Louis, who was often seen nestled between his parents, sported a look similar to his father’s go-to style.

‘She is no stranger to re-wearing items, like the wine coloured jumper and Sezane blouse seen in some of the images, which was also sported on the family Christmas card. 

‘This inspires the public to recreate and emulate what she wears. There has been a pattern in her choices over the last year and that could be because of the pandemic. Kate has really upped her love and wear of high street fashion.’

The clip was posted to the @kensingtonroyal Instagram page with an accompanying message.
