Princess Charlotte Looks Like Her Dad Prince William’s Mini-Me in Newly Shared Video

Prince William, 41, and his daughter, Princess Charlotte, 8, pretty much had royally-obsessed fans seeing double when the father-daughter duo sat down to record a special video message to wish the England women’s soccer team, the Lionesses, good luck in the 2023 FIFA Women’s World Cup final.

On Saturday, the Prince of Wales posted the touching video on the Instagram account he shares with his wife, Kate Middleton, 41. The clip starts with William and Charlotte—who practically looks like a spitting image of her dad—sitting together on a white bench with green shrubs in the background.

At the start of the video, Prince William said, “Lionesses, I want to send you a huge good luck for tomorrow. We're sorry we can't be there in person, but we’re so proud of everything you've achieved and the millions you've inspired here and around the world.”

He added, “So, go out there tomorrow and really enjoy yourselves.” Before the clip came to an end, Princess Charlotte happily said on camera, “Good luck, Lionesses!”


This is certainly not the first time British royal family members have made us do a double take with their striking resemblance. Back in April, Princess Diana’s niece, Lady Amelia Spencer, posted photos of her and her husband, Greg Mallett, on their romantic honeymoon.

And we couldn’t help but notice how much Amelia Spencer (who is the daughter of Diana’s younger brother, Charles Spencer) looks like her late aunt in the pictures.

Those royal family genes sure are strong.
