12 Times Princess Charlotte Proved She Is the Queen's Mini-Me

Princess Charlotte is growing up right before our eyes. The middle Cambridge officially turned 5 years old (!) on May 2. While there's no doubt that she's a spitting image of her father, Prince William, the young royal also takes after her great-grandmother, Queen Elizabeth II. And really, it couldn't be more fitting: Their birthdays are less than two weeks (and several decades) apart.If you put their childhood photos side-by-side, you'll see that they could even pass for sisters, especially when you factor in the number of times they stick out their tongue, wave to the crowds, or show off their adorable, spunky personality. Take a look at these hand-picked photos from family gatherings, public events, and candid moments to see exactly what we're talking about.
