Princess Charlotte celebrates her sixth birthday today and royal fans have noticed how she is taking after the Queen.
A photograph of Princess Charlotte looking happy and relaxed in a floral summer dress has been released to mark her sixth birthday on Sunday.
Charlotte is seen beaming in the picture taken by her mother the Duchess of Cambridge, 39, in Norfolk this weekend.
With her long hair and cheeky grin, Charlotte is the spitting image of her mum at the same age.
But royal fans have also noticed the six-year-old’s striking resemblance to her great-grandmother, the Queen.
One royal watcher wrote on Twitter : “I see so much of William, The Queen and Diana in her!”
Another wrote: “She really is a Windsor!! Such a gorgeous girl! Clearly got Mummies fantastic hair!!!”, while a third added: “Princess Charlotte is a spitting image of the Queen isn’t she!”
“I’ve always said I see so much of Her Majesty, The Queen, in little Princess Charlotte. She’s got the Queen’s eyes!”, said another royal fan.
A fifth person said: “Princess Charlotte is the carbon copy of her great-grandma.”
The photo’s publication comes after the release of a video of Charlotte with her brothers George, seven, and Louis, three, and their parents to mark the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge’s 10th wedding anniversary on Thursday.
It showed the family enjoying time outdoors at their Norfolk residence Anmer Hall and on sand dunes at a nearby beach.
Charlotte was dressed for cooler weather in the video which showed the youngster playing with her brothers and toasting a marshmallow on a camp fire.
Her birthday photo shows the smiling princess pictured outdoors while wearing a dark blue short sleeved dress with a pink floral pattern – a £59 design from British children’s clothing brand Rachel Riley.
Charlotte’s relaxed look is a contrast from the photos which marked Charlotte’s fifth birthday.
In 2020, she was pictured volunteering with her brothers and their parents William and Kate by helping to load a van with food and delivering meals for those in need in Norfolk.
The birthday girl’s full title is Her Royal Highness Princess Charlotte Elizabeth Diana of Cambridge.
She was born at the private maternity Lindo Wing of St Mary’s Hospital in Paddington, central London, at 8.34am on May 2 2015, weighing 8lb 3oz.

Kate is a keen amateur photographer and patron of the Royal Photographic Society and her pictures have regularly been released to mark her children’s birthdays.
The sweet commemorative photo was not shared on the Cambridges’ social media account.
William , who is president of the FA, said they were joining the sporting world for a four-day social media blackout to show that online abuse is not acceptable.
