PRINCESS Charlotte has won the hearts of royal fans around the globe thanks to her adorable personality and stylish looks.
The sassy and lovable youngster – now aged eight – may be the Prince and Princess of Wales’ only daughter, but she certainly holds her own around brothers Prince George, 10, and Prince Louis, five.
From nailing her own little royal wave to delighting fans with her funny sayings, Princess Charlotte often steals the show.
She was born on May 2, 2015, at St Mary's Hospital in Paddington, and we’ve seen her grow into a sweet “mini-me” of mum, Kate Middleton.
Royal fans have witnessed her perfectly perform royal duties as a bridesmaid at two royal weddings and for her first engagements with her parents.
But it’s the bond she has with her two cheeky brothers that regularly entertains the public, including how she keeps George and Louis in check at big events.
