Kate Middleton has just released new photos of her daughter Princess Charlotte ahead of her second birthday. Kensington Palace shared a new photo of the young royal that was taken by her mother at their Norfolk home back in April.
In the photo, Princess Charlotte is looking at the camera while holding what appears to be a book. She is wearing a yellow sheep-printed cardigan and has her hair tied back with a small clip. Kensington Palace released a statement with the photo that said, “The Duke and Duchess are very pleased to share this photograph as they celebrate Princess Charlotte’s second birthday. Their Royal Highnesses would like to thank everyone for all of the lovely messages they have received, and hope that everyone enjoys this photograph of Princess Charlotte as much as they do.”
The last time Prince George and Princess Charlotte were seen in public was during Christmas last year. Prince William and Kate Middleton have shared very few photos of their children to the public.
Instead, they’ve been trying to protect their privacy by keeping them away from the spotlight as much as they can. But now that the public is finally getting a glimpse of young Charlotte, a lot of people can’t help but notice that she definitely looks like another member of the royal family.
Sure, a lot of royal observers believe that Princess Charlotte is her mother’s mini-me but judging by Kate Middleton’s latest photos of her daughter, there’s a good chance that she might be taking after her great-grandmother, Queen Elizabeth. A lot of royal fans have commented on how Princess Charlotte looks like Queen Elizabeth’s little twin.
They even share the same facial features and matching smirks. If that weren’t enough, similar photos of Queen Elizabeth as a toddler are almost identical to Princess Charlotte’s portrait photo.
Of course, Princess Charlotte’s appearance is going to continue to change in the future. All kids change. One day she’ll look more like her mother Kate Middleton while on other days here’s a good chance that she’ll resemble her father Prince William. Now whether or not she is more of a Windsor or a Middleton will later be determined.
So far Buckingham Palace has made no indications to how Prince William and Kate Middleton plan on celebrating Princess Charlotte’s birthday. Also, don’t forget to check back with CDL for all the latest news and updates on the royal family right here.
