"Kitty is Charlotte!" one fan commented. While another follower wrote, "I thought it was Princess Charlotte."

"She resembles Princess Charlotte," noticed a third.

Charlotte has also been compared to Queen Elizabeth II on numerous occasions. Looking at this old picture of the Queen as a child, it's easy to see the resemblance!

Speaking at aphotography workshop to mark her newest patronage with The Royal Photographic Society earlier this year, the royal gave some tips on how to get the perfect photograph. She said, “Just look at everything around you. Maybe it’s in front of you, or far away but choose your subject and focus on it.

“Get outside with your camera as well. George and Charlotte love it when we do that."
