Princess Charlotte bears striking resemblance to this down-to-earth lesser known member of the Royal Family and we're obsessed

The likeness between the two royals is uncanny...

Princess Charlotte of Wales sees Westminster Abbery outside the window of the Royal Car as she arrives at The State Funeral Of Queen Elizabeth II at Westminster Abbey on September 19, 2022 in London, England. Elizabeth Alexandra Mary Windsor was born in Bruton Street, Mayfair, London on 21 April 1926. She married Prince Philip in 1947 and ascended the throne of the United Kingdom and Commonwealth on 6 February 1952 after the death of her Father, King George VI. Queen Elizabeth II died at Balmoral Castle in Scotland on September 8, 2022, and is succeeded by her eldest son, King Charles III.

Photos of a young Lady Sarah Chatto, the daughter of Princess Margaret and Antony Armstrong-Jones, bear a striking resemblance to Princess Charlotte. The striking similarities between the two has delighted royal fans, who have claimed “the genes are strong” and that the pair are “twins… fifty years apart.”

The Windsor genes run strong, as a simple look at Princess Charlotte will testify.

The young royal, the second child and only daughter of Prince William and Catherine, Princess of Wales, bears an uncanny resemblance to Lady Sarah Chatto, the Queen’s niece and only daughter of Princess Margaret.

Photos of a young Lady Sarah, close to Charlotte’s age now, make the pair look almost like twins.

Indeed, fans on social media can barely tell which one is which.

“Wow, I thought both were Charlotte,” one commented on Twitter.

While many others added comments like “Feel like they could be twins” and “I had to check they’re not the same girl 3 times!”

Another put it beautifully, writing “When we can see our ancestors in our children’s faces. Beautiful and worth fighting for.”

Lady Sarah is the second child and only daughter of the Queen’s younger sister, Princess Margaret, and her then-husband, Antony Armstrong-Jones (who became the 1st Earl of Snowdon after his marriage).

Lady Sarah is 27th in line to the throne but is known for taking more of a lowkey role amongst the Royal Family.

Despite living largely out of the public eye, Lady Sarah stepped into the spotlight in 1973, when, at nine years old, she was bridesmaid for her cousin, Princess Anne at her wedding to Captain Mark Phillips.

Lady Sarah would once again perform bridesmaid duties in 1981, at the wedding of Charles and Diana. She also joined her mother and brother, David, now the 2nd Earl of Snowdon, for an official royal engagement in 1987, when Princess Margaret visited Hong Kong.

She is, it’s thought, to be a well-loved member of the family, and was known to be close with the late Queen Elizabeth.

The affection towards Lady Sarah is perhaps best seen in the honors she’s been given by her family. She is godmother to two of her cousin’s children: Prince Harry and Lady Louise Windsor, the daughter of Prince Edward and Sophie, Countess of Wessex.

Lady Sarah is a celebrated painter, choosing to eschew most of the trimmings of royal life for the life of an artist. Represented by the Redfern Gallery, designer and curator Patrick Kinmonth has dubbed her work “a profound contemplation of the world she seeks to know and the method she has mastered.”

She has been presented with prestigious awards for her art, including the Winsor & Newton Prize in 1988 and the Creswick Landscape Prize in 1990.
