Today is Princess Charlotte’s fifth birthday, which means she joins the ranks of those of us who have to celebrate in quarantine. But her parents seem to be doing their best to give her a great birthday. On Friday, they posted four new photos that Kate Middleton took of the little royal to mark her special day. Royal fans who saw the images noticed one thing in particular: Charlotte has a royal twin.
Per Hello! magazine, the princess bears a resemblance to Lady Sarah Chatto, the only daughter of Princess Margaret, Queen Elizabeth’s sister. Charlotte has also been compared to her great-grandmother the Queen; People magazine compared their childhood photos on the occasion of Charlotte’s birthday, and the resemblance is definitely clear.
It makes sense that others would think she looks like Elizabeth’s niece Sarah. When you look at Elizabeth, Margaret, and Sarah, it’s very obvious that they’re all related. It looks like Charlotte is taking after the Windsor side! Here’s another photo of her that her parents added today:
One of the photos Kate took shows Princess Charlotte delivering food to people who are self-isolating in the global pandemic. In the photo, you can see a reflection of Kate and William in the door on which Charlotte is knocking.
Besides doing good deeds for others in quarantine, Charlotte and her brothers appear to have been having a lot of fun at home with their parents.
“Children have got such stamina,” Kate said in a BBC interview last month. “I don’t know how, honestly. You get to the end of the day and you write a list of all the things you’ve done in that day. You’ve pitched a tent, take the tent down again, cook, bake, you get to the end of the day. They’ve had a lovely time. It’s amazing how much you can cram into one day, that’s for sure.”
Let’s hope Charlotte has a birthday full of tens, cooking, baking, and lots of birthday hugs from her family.
