In a recent social media post, Princess Charlotte was seen posing for cameras alongside her father, Prince William. Fans took to the comments section debating what traits the little girl had that made her look like either her great-grandmother or grandmother.

It appears that Princess Charlotte, Prince William and Duchess Kate's only daughter inherited many traits from some of the most powerful women in her family. In May 2022, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge publicly released portraits of their baby girl.

The new images were meant to mark Charlotte's seventh birthday. Upon inspection of the photos, reports noticed that the British Royal Family genes appeared quite strong.

In appearance, the little royal was likened to her great-grandmother, the Queen. It's been years since Charlotte's been matched up to the monarch, and it was the same for the images taken at her family's Norfolk home.

The photographer, Kate, got a stunning picture of her daughter smiling while she posed next to the family's new cocker spaniel dog, Orla. The media noted how the little girl had similar facial features to the Queen's, including her nose, eyes, and cheeky grin.

In March 2017, when Charlotte was still a toddler, Kate attended a unique war memorial unveiling where she spoke to a fellow parent about her daughter. The wife of a warrant officer, Samantha Burge, talked to People magazine about their conversation.

She said the duchess admitted that her little girl had since taken on a different role in the family. Burge revealed how Kate confessed that her daughter was growing up quickly, adding another trait Charlotte shared with the Queen, stating:

"She is the one in charge. We have both got two-year-olds and they are ruling the roost. It was a bit of a mummy chat.”

During 2016's "The Queen at Ninety" ITV documentary, Kate shared her experience raising Charlotte, then ten months old, and her older brother, Prince George, then two. She also shared how the Queen felt when she and William welcomed Charlotte, saying:

“The Queen was really thrilled that it was a little girl, and I think as soon as we came back here to Kensington she was one of our first visitors here.”

Kate also noted how "very special" it was to have a little girl and that she felt lucky her son had a younger sister. In 2021, Mairie Claire claimed besides being each other's spitting images, the monarch and Charlotte had a special bond.

The publication alleged that the Queen did not step back from her royal duties because the little girl was the next female in the line of succession after her. Charlotte was four people away from the role.

It's believed the Queen thought people weren't ready to lose having a woman leading, and since it would take forever for Charlotte to ascend, she had to hold on much longer. In 2021, keen-eyed fans noticed a particular item during a meeting at Windsor Castle.

The Queen handed out The Queen's Medal for Music to concert organist Thomas Trotter during a small ceremony. When the photo from the event was analyzed, a previously unseen image of Charlotte sitting on the monarch's lap was visible.

Besides the little girl, the picture also featured the Queen's late husband, Prince Philip. The monarch's other great-grandchildren also appeared in the snap, including George, Zara Tindall's oldest daughter, Mia, and Peter Phillips' daughters Savannah and Isla.

CHARLOTTE'S TRAITS MIRROR HER LATE GRANDMOTHER

In April 2022, Charlotte, George, and the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge all attended a service that honored the late Philip. Judi James, a body language expert, spoke about how Charlotte also shared traits with her late grandmother, Princess Diana.

The little girl carried her grandmother's first name as one of her two middle names. Speaking to The Daily Express, James also noted how the pair had the shared same personalities, stating:

“Charlotte, looking touchingly like the Queen when she was small, showed body language traits that are more like her Granny Diana."

James seemingly analyzed Charlotte's behavior during her late great-grandfather's event. She shared, "Like Diana, she gives the initial impression of shyness, but beneath that appears to be an outgoing, fun personality."

The expert added, "She also picked out several of the cameras with her eyes, as Diana always remembered to do." After seeing a video of her at another event, royal fans shared who they thought Charlotte looked like.

In April 2020, Kate and her husband released new images to celebrate their lastborn son, Prince Louis's second birthday. It was clear that the little boy and his mother shared a prominent resemblance, and Kate was also aware of it, with a friend saying:

“Everyone always comments on how Louis is the spitting image of Kate. She loves it and thinks it’s very sweet, she often jokes that he’s the only one of her kids who actually looks like her!”

"If George is William's mini me with his mannerisms, then Charlotte is a Catherine's mini me. It's so bizarre because her face looks like William but her mannerisms is Catherine."

The clip also had fans debating who the little princess resembled the most in her Royal Family. One fan believed the little girl looked like "Diana right there," while in a different post, the Modern Monarchy compared Charlotte and Diana by sharing side-by-side images of them.
