Charlotte’s resemblance to great-grandmother the Queen

Princess Charlotte displayed a strong family resemblance to her great-grandmother the Queen as she started her first day at school.

The four-year-old, whose arrival at Thomas’s Battersea was trending in the number one spot on Twitter, has been compared to a young Princess Elizabeth.

The monarch leaves out little gifts for her great-grandchildren when they come to stay.

Charlotte is the highest ranking female in line to the throne, followed by Princesses Beatrice and Eugenie who are ninth and tenth in line.

Known for her confident, feisty side, cheeky Charlotte was spotted sticking her tongue out during the prize-giving at the King’s Cup regatta last month.

She was given the nickname Lilibet when she found Elizabeth difficult to pronounce, and was bright, well-behaved, methodical and tidy.

Her full title is Her Royal Highness Princess Charlotte Elizabeth Diana of Cambridge.
