Three generations and almost 70 years separate Queen Elizabeth and her great-granddaughter, but the royals could pass for twins based on their baby photos.
Born on April 21, 1926, the future monarch modeled the same big blue eyes, arched eyebrows and light-brown hair as Princess Charlotte, who turned 2 on May 2. Even ignoring the obvious physical similarities, the regal toddlers seem to the same hobbies too. If Buckingham Palace had a time machine, we bet these cuties would be best playmates.
Both babies probably wondered why everyone wanted their pictures at first, but they got their poses down pat at an early age.
Look at those pouts! Charlotte mirrored this 1930 photograph of Princess Elizabeth almost exactly at a Christmas service last year.
Her great-grandma always loved corgis, so it's no surprise Princess Charlotte enjoys pups herself. During her visit to Canada last year, the toddler loved petting a friendly therapy dog named .

Although her brother sits in line for the throne, Princess Charlotte shows some aptitude for ruling too. The Duchess of Cambridge recently d that toddler is "the one in charge" of the royal family.
Even the most recent photograph of Princess Charlotte — taken by Kate Middleton herself — brings to mind the monarch. The future Queen's expression mirrors her descendant's exactly, right down to the half-smile.
