Kate Middleton’s new Princess Charlotte photo shared to mark her seventh birthday has sparked a seriously sweet reaction from royal fans. 

Kate Middleton treated royal fans to a special new Princess Charlotte (opens in new tab) photo to mark her birthday and royal fans couldn't help but notice something in particular. 

Charlotte turned seven on the 2nd of May and to mark the special day, Kate showed off her photography skills and posted a set of portraits of her daughter to the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge's official Instagram account.

The photo showed Charlotte sitting in a bluebell field, beaming at the camera and cuddling the family spaniel, Orla. Fans were blown away by how grown up she looked and by her striking resemblance to her father, Prince William.

Several fans also noticed similarities between the young princess and her great-grandmother (opens in new tab), with one pointing out, “Oh my goodness she looks like the Queen!”

It seems it’s not just her father’s looks that Charlotte has inherited. Prince William once joked that she also gets her ‘feisty’ personality from him (opens in new tab), while also commenting on how fast his kids were growing up.

This also isn't the first time this year that royal fans have been stunned by how grown-up Charlotte is. At Prince Philip’s memorial service, Charlotte was dubbed a ‘pro’ (opens in new tab) for the way she navigated her first televised church service. During the royal appearance, she was spotted shaking hands with clergymen and even sharing a sweet moment with her cousin Princess Beatrice (opens in new tab).
