If there was any doubt in our mind that Princess Charlotte is Kate Middleton's mini-me, it's gone, thanks to new photos released by Kensington Palace.

The pics in question are of the duchess and princess posing on a rope swing at the RHS Chelsea's Back to Nature Garden. In the shots, mom and daughter look nearly identical as they grin at the camera while swinging playfully.

The garden was designed by the duchess and award-winning landscape architects Andrée Davies and Adam White of Davies White Landscape Architects, and is a woodland setting for families and communities to come together and connect with nature.

In a statement, Kate said, “In recent years I have focused much of my work on the early years, and how instrumental they are for outcomes later in life. I believe that spending time outdoors when we are young can play a role in laying the foundations for children to become happy, healthy adults.”

The swing seat hangs below the garden's centerpiece, a high platform tree house that encourages creative play for visitors of all ages. The tree house was inspired by a bird or animal nest, and is made from chestnut, with hazel, stag horn oak and larch nest cladding. "The garden is aiming to inspire interaction with the natural environment through its multi-sensory, green and blue plant scheme," the palace said in a statement. "The garden will be filled with incredible edibles, plants for craft activities, forest scents and a diverse range of plants, shrubs and trees of different heights and textures."
