For Queen Elizabeth II’s 90th birthday, she called on famed photographer Annie Leibovitz to take a series of portraits. In one, she sits with her daughter, Princess Anne; in another, she’s pictured in the Buckingham Palace gardens with her beloved corgis and dorgis; and in a third, she’s posing with all of her great-grandchildren. In the latter, taken following Easter festivities, the youngest royals, dressed in their Sunday best, surround her Majesty, with Princess Charlotte plopped on her lap.
The 11-month-old coordinated with her great-grandmother, who wore a white collared shirt, gray skirt, and pink cardigan with a string of pearls for the occasion, in a floral dress from m&h, a Spanish boutique, tights from Amaia, and a blush sweater.
But the dress, a gift from her nanny, wasn’t bought especially for the occasion. In fact, she wore it for her family’s holiday card! In the card, which was released in December but shot in October in the gardens of Kensington Palace, Charlotte, who was 6 months old at the time, sat on the lap of her mother, the Duchess of Cambridge, with her father, Prince William, and brother, Prince George, at their side.
Obviously, the little princess takes after her mother. It seems that she has inherited Kate’s penchant for repeating outfits and shopping her own closet, too.
Like mother, like daughter!
