Some people think that Princess Charlotte is pursuing her grandmother, the late Princess Diana, but it could also be argued that the young royalty is, as Oprah puts it, the “mini-me” of her great-grandmother, Queen Elizabeth. The second daughter of Prince William and Duchess Kate Middleton, who have three children in all (and probably won’t have another), Charlotte has the same round cheeks, elegantly curved chin, and sweet smile as the monarch. And the ways the princess reflects her elite only become clearer as she ages.
When Kate posted a video of her little ones to Instagram in March 2023, the Duchess’s followers took the comments to notice the apparent similarity. “I can’t believe how much Princess Charlotte is like Queen Elizabeth,” wrote one person, by Daily Mail. Another felt the same way, writing, “I think Princess Charlotte is the image of her royal highness.”
As for those who need more evidence that these two are twins? We have you covered.
Princess Charlotte inherited two of the Queen’s key qualities.
Queen Elizabeth not only conveyed aspects of her appearance to her great-granddaughter, Princess Charlotte. The younger royalty also apparently inherited the gestures and personality traits for which the monarch is famous, including his aristocratic wave. Over the years, Queen Elizabeth is known to use a move worthy of her hand to greet crowds, a move by Helena Bonham Carter, who played a version of Princess Margaret in The Crown – compared to “polishing a bombilla, »in an interview with Emmy Magazine (via Spanish ) Charlotte often uses the same kind of discreet action when greeting a crowd.
However, the familiar family gesture is not the only way that their personalities are the same. While the queen and princess can be friendly and willing to interact with the public when appropriate, they also assert themselves when necessary. For example, when Prince Harry and Meghan Markle retired from their royal duties, it was the queen who oversaw the movement, and Charlotte was sure to speak to photographers outside her younger brother’s christening to keep them in place. And then there was the moment when she stuck her tongue out at an event where she obviously felt cheeky (although that’s probably not something the queen would do).
But wait, we have more to share about the similarities between Queen and Princess Charlotte.
The princess and queen are two peas in a pod.
Although genetics is responsible for the fact that Queen Elizabeth and Princess Charlotte are alike, education also plays a role in their general similarities.
Unlike Kate Middleton and Meghan Markle, both Elizabeth and Charlotte were born on the royal line as princesses. On top of that, Elizabeth was not expected to inherit the throne (a change in succession made her father king) and neither is Charlotte, despite the fact that she ranks fourth in the line of succession, as His older brother George is expected to take the lead role, behind Prince Charles and Prince William.
However, if Charlotte ends up wearing the crown, there is a good chance she is ready for the role thanks to her top-notch education from Thomas’s Battersea private school (which costs $ 23,000 a year, if you’re curious). The queen also received a private (probably costly) education while studying at home under the guidance of tutors, learning French, math, and history, as well as creative subjects like art, singing, and dancing. Unsurprisingly, Charlotte loves these activities too, especially when it comes to dancing, as Middleton once revealed to a fan (via Daily Mail ).
Of course, these two are not the only alike in the royal family: Duchess Camilla bears a striking resemblance to her granddaughter, Eliza Lopes.
