Princess Charlotte Copies Kate Middleton’s Go-To Ponytail Move in Viral Video

This now-viral video proves that Princess Charlotte is taking after her mom, Kate Middleton. (Can’t say we’re surprised.)

It all started over the weekend when a TikTok user (@royalfancams) posted a video on social media, featuring back-to-back footage of Princess Charlotte and Middleton fixing their hair.

Although both clips were taken at different times—the Duchess of Cambridge was doing a Zoom call, while the young royal was arriving at Thomas’s Battersea for her first day of school back in 2019—there’s no denying the similarities in their mannerisms.

The clip shows Middleton wearing a ponytail on a video call. At one point, the duchess grabs her hair, twists it around her finger and then lets it fall against her neck. The footage is followed by Princess Charlotte doing the exact same thing.

Oh, and don’t even get us started on the visual similarities between Middleton and Princess Charlotte. Everything from their chin shape to their facial expressions are nearly identical.

Royal fans immediately flooded the comments section with words of praise for the familial comparison. While most responded with heart-eye emojis, one user said what we’re all thinking: “Beautiful resemblance for two beautiful ladies.”

Like mother, like daughter.
