“She looks so much like her grandmother!” A new portrait of Princess Charlotte in honor of her 8th birthday amazed fans
Despite being just a toddler at the wedding of Meghan and Harry, Princess Charlotte has now grown up to be 8 years old.

On this special day, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge shared a new image of their daughter on their official account. The festive portrait of Princess Charlotte was a delightful addition to the holiday season.
