Princess Charlotte recently rocked a super cute pair of white sneakers that look just like her mom's classic sneakers, and we're loving that she's growing into a little fashionista. 

On May 8, the whole Windsor family, including Princess Kate, Prince William, and their three kids, George, Charlotte, and Louis set out to Slough to participate in the Big Help Out. This day, which honors the reverence of King Charles' coronation, is meant to be a day of service, and the Windsors set a prime example as the whole family set out to do some volunteer work themselves.

As per usual, Kate looked fabulous, even despite the fact that they had to dress with the expectation of doing some manual labor. She rocked a pair of slip-on, flat boots from Blundstone, which were ideal for the day, seeing as they were facing some rather muddy terrain - as well as a chic denim blouse and a pair of well-fitting skinny jeans for the eventful day.

Princess Charlotte, on the other hand, although only eight years old, showed up looking rather fashionable in a pink cable-knit sweater and cutoff denim shorts.

The young princess also wore a cute pair of crisp, white sneakers that featured some sparkly detailing on them, creating a perfect balance between chic and playful. 

The best white sneakers are undeniably one of the most important pairs of shoes you can have in your arsenal. Not only do they match everything (casual outfits, dresses, business casual workwear), but they're also super comfortable. Luckily, most pairs are also relatively inexpensive - especially if you're comparing them to the traditional Emmy London pumps Kate Middleton is often wearing, or even her Boden flats

While Charlotte's shoes are obviously meant for a child, the pair she's wearing looks quite similar to Kate's beloved Veja sneakers, which she wears all the time. In fact, she even wore them this past Sunday afternoon, stepping out in the sneakers and a baby blue blazer to meet royal fans attending the upcoming coronation concert.
