Princess Charlotte’s surprising royal lookalike

Princess Charlotte’s surprising royal lookalike

While Princess Charlotte has been compared to Princess Diana and even the Queen, there is a new member of the Royal Family that fans believe the 3-year-old shares an uncanny resemblance with.

Last week, Diana’s niece, Lady Kitty Spencer, shared a sweet throwback photo of herself as a child.

Royal fans were quick to point out the resemblance between Prince William and Prince Harry’s cousin and Princess Charlotte.

The 27-year-old daughter of Diana’s brother Charles Spencer and Victoria Lockwood captioned the photo: “First day of school #tbt”.

The vintage snap shows a four-year-old Kitty wearing a gingham dress, white socks and black pumps.

Some fans initially believed the photo was a shot of Charlotte.

“I just thought palace released a new pic but then read the caption and name,” one user wrote.

Another added: “Princess Charlotte has the Spencer genes. You look so similar on this”.

On Charlotte’s first day at Wilcocks Nursery in January, she also wore the same style of shoes but in red.

Kitty has remained close to her royal cousins following their mother Diana’s passing, attending both William’s wedding in 2011 and Harry’s nuptials earlier this year.
