Thanks to Lady Kitty Spencer’s childhood photos, we might have a really good idea of what Princess Charlotte may look like when she’s older.
Princess Charlotte has clearly inherited a number of features from her father Prince William, who takes after his mother Princess Diana.
And now, the family resemblance from Diana’s side of the family has never been clearer as her niece, Lady Kitty Spencer, shared a throwback photo of herself on earlier this week.
The photo shows her enjoying a riding lesson in the undated photo. While it’s not familiar how old Kitty is in the photo, the caption says she has been riding since 1992, when she would have been two years old.
She wrote: “Lexus Melbourne Cup here we come!! Channeling my inner jockey since 1992!”
Royal fans immediately went wild over the snap pointing out Kitty’s likeness to Princess Charlotte. One wrote: “Wow Charlotte looks a lot like you.” Another one said: “Gosh you look like Princess Charlotte here.”
This is not the first time that Kitty and Charlotte’s resemblances have been made apparent.
Kitty, who is a successful model, frequently posts childhood photos of herself. And every time she does, all the commenters say the same thing.
In January 2018, the Palace released images of Princess Charlotte on her first day of nursery school. And few months later, in November, Kitty posted a black-and-white photo of herself taken on her first day at school, which made the similarity even more striking, and fans immediately noticed the resemblance to Charlotte.
Lady Kitty is William and Harry’s cousin on their mother Princess Diana’s side as she’s the eldest daughter of the brother of Diana, Earl Charles Spencer. She is on warm terms with them, and is an ambassador for homelessness charity Centrepoint of which William is patron.
