Prince William and Kate Middleton’s major social media change came alongside a snap of Princess Kate as a baby with her father Michael Middleton. Many royal fans were quick to comment on the resemblance between Kate and her only daughter at the time. However, this shot of Prince William and the young Princess shows it might be a 50/50 split!

During a visit to Bradford in the North of England, back in 2020, the Wales visited, "a number of projects which support the community and promote cohesion within it." It was on one of these visits that a spectacular baked creation, designed and made by Bradford baker Siama Ali, astounded the royal couple.

A magnificent cake and cupcake selection, which told the story of both of their lives to date through edible pictures, left them utterly amazed - especially Prince William. After seeing photos printed on the sweet treats HELLO! reports he turned to his wife and said, "is that me? Doesn't it look like Charlotte?" 

"It looks so much like Charlotte," agreed Kate. No surprise there as it's often pointed out that Princess Charlotte's cheeky like Prince William in old photos.

Remembering the special moment, two years later, baker Samia said in an Instagram post, "Still can’t get over that I met our future King/Queen...their feedback & invitation to the Buckingham Garden Tea Party was something I could only dream of & can’t wait for that time to come thanks to a special someone❤️."

Interestingly enough, it's not only her parents that she shares a resemblance with as some have remarked that Princess Charlotte and Lady Chatto could be twins! Lady Sarah Chatto, the daughter of Princess Margaret and Antony Armstrong-Jones, is a mirror image of her first cousin twice removed.

There's no denying that the two look rather alike and it's very clear that they share a special father-daughter bond. This may well be down to the 'Middleton model' of parenting, which is what the Prince and Princess reportedly follow. Perhaps this is why it's believed that Princess Charlotte won't struggle as a 'spare' like her uncle Prince Harry.

Though it's unclear at this stage if the youngster will become a working royal in her adult years or not, it's believed that Princess Charlotte will receive this title when Prince William is King - ensuring that she won't feel left out.
