Princess Charlotte Looks Exactly Like This Royal Family Member

Though Prince William and Kate Middleton keep their little ones out of the spotlight, that hasn’t stopped us from seeing glimpses of Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis’ daily lives. Each year on the little royals birthdays — the duchess releases photos of her children to showcase how much they’ve grown over the past year.

Also, we’ve also seen the little ones during special royal events like Trooping of Colour and on their first day of school. Since Princess Charlotte became old enough to begin attending events with her famous family, we’ve watched her wave to the paparazzi, stick her tongue out to fans and generally interact with people in the most hilarious ways.

Now, fans are noticing that as the princess matures, she’s beginning to look exactly like another royal family member.

Princess Charlotte strongly resembles her cousin Lady Kitty Spencer

Royal fans were all abuzz in May 2018 when Lady Kitty Spencer –the niece of the late Princess Diana showed up at Duchess Markle and Prince Harry’s wedding. Though Spencer is of noble birth, because she’s not in the spotlight like her royal cousins, the model’s appearance certainly turned heads.

This past weekend, Lady Spencer got the internet talking once more when she uploaded the sweetest childhood photo of herself. In the pic, the 28-year old was about two-years-old and riding on a horse, she captioned the photo, “Lexus Melbourne Cup here we come!! Channeling my inner jockey since 1992!” Royal fans also noticed that the old photo of Lady Spencer bears a striking resemblance to Princess Charlotte today.

The pair share the same golden blonde hair, sweet face and large eyes. It’s insane to think about what genetics can do.

Who is Lady Kitty Spencer?

Though Princess Diana’s niece was relatively unknown before the Duke and Duchess of Sussexes’ wedding– her fame exploded following her appearance at the royal wedding. Lady Spencer is the eldest daughter of Princess Diana’s brother, Charles Spencer, 9th Earl Spencer. Though she was born in London on December 28, 1990 –she spent her childhood in South Africa.

Lady Spencer is a fashion model, walking runways like Dolce & Gabbana and one of England’s “It” girls. In addition to her work in fashion, Spencer is also a philanthropist like her famous cousins and late aunt. She is an ambassador for Centrepoint, an organization that focuses on homeless youth. Each year, she also raises money for organizations like Elton John AIDS Foundation and Save the Children.

What is Princess Charlotte’s personality like?

While Prince Louis is still a small tot and Prince George is more quiet and reserved — it looks like Princess Charlotte runs the Cambridge household. “Charlotte’s extremely confident and loves attention,” an insider told US Weekly. We’ve seen the princess play up to the cameras, so it’s clear that she’s not shy at all. Since she’s practically Lady Kitty Spencer’s childhood doppelganger, it will be interesting to see how the princess’ personality shifts and changes as she gets older.

With so many strong women around her, from her great-grandmother, Queen Elizabeth to her mother, Duchess Kate Middleton, aunt, Duchess Meghan Markle and cousin, Lady Kitty Spencer — we’d say the princess has a ton of good examples to look up to.
