Make a birthday crown for this princess.
Prince William and Kate Middleton shared new photographs of their daughter Charlotte, who is a striking resemblance of her father, to commemorate her 7th birthday.
In a rare snapshot taken by her mother, the Duchess of Cambridge, while they were in Norfolk, England, and posted on Instagram on Sunday, Charlotte is shown smiling next to the family’s black cocker spaniel puppy, Orla.
Charlotte is alone in the grass, surrounded by stunning purple flowers, in another photo. Her broad grin reveals that she is missing a tooth as she wears a blue cable-knit sweater over a spotted collared shirt.
“On Princess Charlotte’s seventh birthday, thank you for all the kind messages!” On Monday, William and Middleton captioned their Instagram image.
Several royal admirers crowded the comments section to celebrate Charlotte’s special day, with many remarking on how much she looks like the Duke of Cambridge.
One individual remarked, “She looks sooo much like William!!”
“I typically believe she looks like The Queen, but she looks like her father in this first one,” another Instagram user concurred.
She is William’s twin sister. “Happy birthday,” chimed in a third.
Another person wrote, “William’s mini me.”
She is Prince William’s long-haired sister. “Happy birthday, dear Princess Charlotte,” said another.
Middleton, 40, and William, 39, married in 2011 and have three children: Prince George, 8, Princess Charlotte, 4, and Prince Louis, 4.
Charlotte is the fourth member of the royal family in line to succeed to the throne of the United Kingdom, following her grandfather Prince Charles, father William, and brother George.
Her great-grandmother, Queen Elizabeth II, is Britain’s longest-reigning queen, having reigned for 96 years.
