Charlotte has the same zodiac sign as Queen Elizabeth

Princess Charlotte’s birthdate makes her a Taurus. The earth sign is the same sign as her great-grandmother, Queen Elizabeth II, whose birthday is April 21.

According to CafeAstrology, Taurus women are “practical, classy, and tasteful.” Tauruses also tend to be very honest and good workers as it is one of the hardest-working signs in the zodiac. They usually make great friends, partners, and colleagues too.

In addition, people with this sign tend to have stability, power, and are sometimes rebellious.
