Who does Princess Charlotte resemble most?
Over the years, royal watchers have pointed out Charlotte’s stark resemblance to her history-making great-grandmother, Queen Elizabeth II.
Of course, there’s no denying the pair resemble each other in looks. Charlotte’s doe eyes and cheeks are reminiscent to the Queen’s when she was Charlotte’s age.
They also share similarities in their personal nature.
Even from a young age, the Queen was said to have a sense of orderliness and responsibility—bearing in mind this was before she knew she would even become Queen (when her uncle abdicated, Elizabeth’s father became King thereby making her heir apparent at age 10).
And it’s clear that Charlotte, who has yet to reach double digits, also takes her role as a royal very seriously.
When she was just two years old, Charlotte was pictured hand in hand with her father, Prince William, entering London’s Lindo Wing where her newborn baby bother, Prince Louis awaited. As she walked in, Charlotte turned to the awaiting cameras and gave a polite, steady wave. Yes, that regal wave which has long been synonymous with the Queen.
In the years since that iconic moment, Charlotte has proved she’s growing up to be just like her great-grandmother. At the 2022 Platinum Jubilee Trooping The Colour celebration, Charlotte arrived by carriage between her two brothers George and Louis.
While she and George once again showed off that perfectly royal wave, Louis own wave became a little manic, which was quickly picked up by Charlotte who placed a steady hand on her younger brother’s to stop the display.
Of course, it’s not just the Queen that fans have noticed Charlotte’s resemblance to. There’s no denying she has inherited some of her grandmother Princess Diana’s looks. The hair and eyes are a dead ringer.
Meanwhile, some royal watchers have also pointed out an almost eerily resemblance to another royal who isn’t as closely related to the Wales family.
Charlotte and her great auntie, Lady Sarah Chatto, who is the daughter of Queen Elizabeth’s late sister Princess Margaret, bear strikingly similar looks (comparing them at the same age, at least).
And last but not least, we can’t forget our personal favourite comparison between Princess Charlotte and her dad Prince William. Their resemblance was actually discovered and pointed out by none other that William himself, who mistook a baby photo of himself for Charlotte during a public engagement in 2020.
As he viewed an elaborate cupcake display featuring photos of the royals, William looked taken aback as he pointed to one particular baby photo: “Is that me? Doesn’t it look like Charlotte?”
When no one replied, William asked again: “Is that me? Oh my goodness that looks just like Charlotte. It’s incredible, I haven’t seen that before. Very alike in similarity.” See the moment in the video below.
