Every little girl is a princess in her parents’ eyes – but one tiny Aussie comes closer than most to matching the real thing.

Mum Jo says she first started to notice a resemblance when Charlotte’s early toddler photos started appearing.
‘We though, ooh, she looks just like Ella,’ Jo told The Morning Show. ‘More and more people noticed that there was an uncanny resemblance.’
And Ella isn’t the only one in the family with a fun royal resemblance – Jo’s own mum used to be compared with Princess Dianaback in the day. And we have to say, from the pictures in the video above, there is a bit of a similarity!
Jo says while the ‘royal gene’ skipped her generation, she’s glad that the opportunity for lookalike fun has been inherited by her little girl.
Not only does Ella look like Charlotte, she also shares her habit of sticking her tongue out!
Congratulations to Ella on her big win! It’s a right royal triumph.
There might be a lot more opportunities for a Charlotte lookalike in the future, with the young royal already grabbing a lot of headlines in the UK.
It seems the young daughter of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge has the exact same tastebuds as her mother, with Kate Middleton, 37, revealing what the young royal's favourite food is.
While Prince William and Kate were attending a special reception at the Aga Khan Centre in King's Cross, London ahead of their roya; visit to Pakistan, the mum-of-three shared a fascinating tidbit into their royal home.
Chatting with guests, Kate confessed that she was most excited about trying the food on their upcoming trip, admitting that she often cooks curries at home for her family. The Duchess of Cambridge then revealed that while she loves her curries very spicy, the rest of her family do not - with the exception of Charlotte.
‘It’s so hard cooking curry with the family though. The children have a portion with no spice, yours is medium,’ Kate said to William. ‘And I quite like it hot.’ before adding: ‘Charlotte is pretty good with heat.’
The Duke of Cambridge was at BAFTA HQ in London to launch a new exhibition called Behind the Screens, which is a celebration of 75 years of the UK film and television industry, when he revealed the young princess’s favourite TV show. During his visit, the Duke was gifted with a toy Clanger, from the recently relaunched TV show of the same name.
Daily Mirror's royal editor Russell Myers explained the toy had been given to Charlotte, as she's said to be a fan of the kids TV show.
‘I’m told Princess Charlotte is a big fan of the Clangers so Prince William was presented with a little Clangers toy.’
Adding that Prince William admitted he'd ‘dropped a few clangers in his time’ upon receiving the thoughtful present.
