To celebrate her turning six years old, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge recently shared a previously unseen photograph of their daughter, Princess Charlotte. As is now custom, the picture was taken by the Duchess herself and shows Charlotte smiling and wearing a super cute floral-patterned dress – and everyone is saying the same thing about it: that she looks exactly like her great-grandmother, Queen Elizabeth II.

Underneath the photo (which was shared via the official Royal Family Instagram account, rather than the Kensington Royal one, which is currently taking part in a social media boycott related to issues within the football community), one royal enthusiast wrote: "She looks like Queen Elizabeth". Almost 6,000 people have liked the comment indicating they're certainly not the only one to think so!

Another chimed in with, "She looks so much like the queen!" and a further person noted, "Looks so much like the queen, her great grandma! ❤️".

Over on Twitter, the comments were pretty similar too. "Even though Princess Charlotte looks like William in his photos as a child, she is Queen Elizabeth’s mini me 😍," one wrote, even sharing a side-by-side image of Her Majesty and little Charlotte.

And here is a throwback photo of Queen Elizabeth II taken in 1932, when she was also six-years-old. She's travelling with her grandparents, King George V (1865 - 1936) and Queen Mary (1867 - 1953) following a church service at Crathie in Aberdeenshire, Scotland:

For further evidence, here's another look at Her Majesty back in 1932 - this time, she's hanging out with younger sister, Princess Margaret:

We can totally see it - and also think it's especially lovely that the pair share a striking resemblance too as recently, following the sad death of Prince Philip, the Royal Family chose to share a few personal photos of the Duke and Her Majesty, one of which revealed a special moment between the Queen and Princess Charlotte when she was just a baby.

It's also said that both Princess Charlotte and her brother, Prince George, have adopted a hobby favoured by the Queen too - riding and all things horse-orientated - something that Her Royal Highness is said to be ever so pleased about.

It's safe to say that nobody could ever accuse the royals of not having a strong gene pool!
