The Duke, 39, and Duchess of Cambridge, 40, have delighted fans by sharing several snaps of the little royal to mark her seventh birthday today.
Royal fans rushed to point out the family resemblances, noting how similar Princess Charlotte looks to her father Prince William.
One commented: ‘Oh my…she is Prince William with long hair. Happiest birthday sweet Princess Charlotte!’
Royal fans have gone wild over how much Princess Charlotte looks like her father Prince William in a new photograph released to mark her seventh birthday today (left, William in 1987, and right, Charlotte)
Meanwhile another wrote: ‘She looks so much like her daddy!’
A third added: ‘Charlotte is definitely Papa William!
‘Every year, Charlotte’s birthday photos are released, but there are two options, the Queen and Princess Diana. From, here, I conclude that Prince William has derived from those two women.’
A fourth pointed out: ‘Prince William’s twin.’

‘Princess Charlotte is such a spitting image of Prince William,’ another added. ‘I do see some resemblance of her with the Queen, though.
‘Wishing Princess Charlotte a wonderful birthday celebration.’
The photographs, which were taken by the Duchess of Cambridge to mark her daughter’s seventh birthday today, the family’s adored new pet can be seen for the first time.
Prince William and Kate have kept their new pup’s identity a secret until now. But the Daily Mail can reveal that the little spaniel is named Orla.

Kate’s three pictures of her spirited daughter – a princess who adores ballet but can also give her brother George a run for his money on the football pitch – capture her natural joie de vivre.
Laughing into the lens, Charlotte wore a blue patterned blouse and jumper, and clutches a posy of freshly picked daisies in her hand.
The pictures were taken at the family’s country home Anmer Hall over the weekend, where they were also joined by little Orla.
She was given to the family in the summer of 2020 by the duchess’s brother, James Middleton.

She proved to be a great source of comfort when they lost Lupo, their first black spaniel, in November 2020.
Kate and William had doted on Lupo since they got him as a puppy in 2012 – a year after they married.
However, they so jealously guarded his privacy that they refused to confirm his identity at first, let alone reveal his name, until Kate let it slip in an incident dubbed ‘Puppygate’.
Now that she is seven, Charlotte is likely to be seen on more royal engagements. She joined George, eight, at the Easter Service last month
While Lupo was the Italian for ‘wolf’, Orla – whose name has also been kept under wraps for two years – is Celtic in origin and means ‘golden princess’.
It is not known why the couple chose it but they later said they liked the name Lupo so it may be the same for their new pet.
Now that she is seven, Charlotte is likely to be seen on more royal engagements such as church services. She joined George, eight, for a memorial service for their late great-grandfather, the Duke of Edinburgh, in March.
