There have been plenty of
uncanny resemblances spotted between the youngest generation of royals and
The Duke and Duchess of
Cambridge’s seven-year-old daughter is renowned for wearing hand-smocked
dresses with Mary Jane shoes.
We know fashion trends come
around time and time again, but we wonder if Prince William and Kate took
inspiration from some archive pictures?
Princess Beatrice, then aged
18 months old, was pictured outside The Portland Hospital in London, as she
arrived to meet her newborn baby sister Princess Eugenie in March
Princess Beatrice and Princess Charlotte look almost identical
The Princess looked adorable
in a blue and red hand-smocked dress with puffed sleeves and a Peter Pan
collar. She also wore white tights and red Mary Jane shoes.
Beatrice’s outfit is
remarkably similar to one worn by Princess Charlotte at a children’s party
during William and Kate’s royal tour of Canada in 2016.
Charlotte has a similar style to Princess Beatrice at the same age
The tot was dressed in a blue
hand-smocked dress with coral embroidered details, frilled puff sleeves and a
Peter Pan collar from Pepa & Co. While she was wearing blue Mary Janes for
the occasion, Charlotte also owns a maroon pair from Doña Carmen.
In more photos from the 1990s,
Beatrice was also pictured wearing bows in her hair, which have since become
synonymous with Charlotte, who has worn accessories from Amaia Kids.

Over the years we’ve seen the
young royals wear family hand-me-downs, from Charlotte wearing one of her big
brother George’s blue sweaters to Prince Louis wearing one of William and
Harry’s outfits when he made his Trooping the Colour debut in 2019.
