The Queen's mini-me! Palace celebrates as Princess Charlotte turns 4

Princess Charlotte and her family are celebrating her fourth birthday today, May 2, by sharing three new adorable portraits of the little royal.

In the happy snaps, the princess looks strikingly similar to her great-grandmother, The Queen.

The stunning portraits, taken by none other than Charlotte's mum, the Duchess of Cambridge, at the family’s country estate Anmer Hall, shows the playful royal happily running around the grounds of her home.

In two images, the young royal member is wearing a plaid dress with a simple grey cardigan – an outfit once worn by Queen Elizabeth when she herself was a young princess.

The portrait taken in 1936 shows a happy Princess Elizabeth with her sister, Princess Margaret, in matching plaid skirts with sweaters as the play gleefully with a family corgi dog.

The Queen has a special place in her heart for plaid it seems as it has remained a constant pattern she has worn again and again over the years on numerous occasions.

The similarities do not end in plaid though as it seems the two royal members over two generations apart have a love for floral as well.

In the third image of Princess Charlotte, she is pictured sitting in the grounds of her royal home while she poses for the camera in a blue floral print dress with a white collar.

The Queen adorned a similar outfit when she was a little tyke herself and was pictured wearing a strikingly similar dress to her great-granddaughter in 1936.  

The little royal, who is fourth in line to the throne, has proven alongside her great-grandmother that style does not need to come with age.
