The Duchess of Cambridge's love of the arts is well documented. In recent years, the Duchess has also become a photography enthusiast, sharing personal photographs of her children on special occasions, from birthdays to first days of school. On 2nd May Kensington Palace shared a set of pictures the Duchess had taken of her daughter Princess Charlotte to celebrate her fourth birthday.
To mark Princess Charlotte's fourth birthday, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge released three new portraits of their daughter. And while royal fans were delighted to see just how much Charlotte has grown, they couldn't decide who the little girl looks like the most out of all her family members. After Kensington Palace posted the photos on Instagram, comments soon followed, with one person writing: "She looks like William, who looks like Diana," while another said: "She looks just like William." Others thought Charlotte looked more like the Queen. "So adorable. She looks just like Queen Elizabeth," one wrote. "Eyes and brow of Queen Elizabeth, and the rest William/Diana." Another fan couldn't decide which one she looked like the most, concluding: "She looks like William and Queen Elizabeth."Some people think Princess Charlotte looks like the QueenMORE: Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's cutest moments togetherThe three pictures were released on the eve of Charlotte's birthday, and were taken both at Kensington Palace and the Cambridge family's country home, Anmer Hall.

While the Royal Family have embraced the digital age, all of the senior members do not have their own personal social media accounts. As the younger generation of royals, such as Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis, will they be at a disadvantage with their peers, if they aren't able to engage on their own Instagram or Twitter platforms?

It’s been quite the year for the Royal Family , with not one but two weddings, a new baby and another on the way in the new year. The Queen proved she was as style savvy as the younger royals with a surprise appearance at the Richard Quinn catwalk show, joining US Vogue editor Anna Wintour in the front row during London Fashion Week .

After announcing their engagement in November 2017, Prince Harry and former actress Meghan Markle tied the knot at St George’s Chapel at Windsor Castle on May 19, in a ceremony that was watched by an estimated 1.9 billion people around the world. It was a star-studded affair and Meghan wowed in her wedding dress by Clare Waight Keller and an evening gown by Stella McCartney. The pair have thrown themselves into their royal duties and charmed everyone they met during their royal tour of Australia, Fiji, Tonga and New Zealand in October. The trip got off to an exciting start as the couple announced they’re expecting their first child next spring. Princess Eugenie also married her long-term boyfriend Jack Brooksbank at the same venue as her cousin Harry on October 12, and her proud mother Sarah, Duchess of York made her return to the fold.
