Who among us hasn't wished we could be a little more like Kate Middleton? While it's only a pipe dream for most, there is one precious soul among us who is lucky enough to take after the Duchess of Cambridge herself. We're talking, of course, about Princess Charlotte. The little princess already displays many of the traits that make Kate so likable. It must be in the genes -- or maybe it's something in that Kensington Palace water.

Charlotte doesn't just look like a tiny version of Kate. She acts like one, too. And wow, can this headstrong, little girl pull off an outfit with style and grace. Every year that we get to see Charlotte grow, we just see more smarts, curiosity, and courage shining through her personality. We think she's going places. Just like her mum. And we certainly can't wait to see what's still to come for the young princess.

    One of Kate's most endearing qualities is her total inability to hide how excited she is about life. Charlotte looked just as happy as Kate while spending her last day in Canada.

  • She Perfected the Royal Wave

    Kate has her regal but friendly wave for the masses down pat, and Charlotte has clearly been taking notes. She showed off her proper waving skills at the Trooping the Colour this year.

  • She's Always on the Go

    It takes an active little girl to keep up with a schedule as busy as Kate's, but Charlotte appears to have no trouble making one public appearance after the next with her in-demand mum.

    Just like her stylish mom, Charlotte knows how to accessorize. The toddler's matching navy Mary Janes and cardigan perfectly complemented the light blue dress she wore to a party during her tour of Canada.

  • She's Basically (Mini) Sporty Spice

    Kate is known for being impressively athletic and a lover of the great outdoors. The fact that Charlotte braved the cold for a ski trip in the French Alps with her family -- when she was less than a year old -- means she's every bit as hardy as her mama.

  • She's Always Ready for Her Closeup

    The Duchess of Cambridge is no stranger to receiving flowers from her adoring fans, and she always accepts said gifts ever so graciously. It looks as if Charlotte is mastering the same skill.

    Even though she's still a toddler, Charlotte has already explored another country. It looks like she's every bit as adventurous as her well-traveled mum, and we have a feeling Canada won't be the only stamp on her passport for long.

    Charlotte is not just another pretty princess. She's boisterous, silly, active, and curious. That reminds us a whole lot of her mama, who refuses to be labeled as a royal stereotype.

    Kate and Pippa are as close as sisters can be, and Charlotte seems like she's just as close with her big brother, George. 

  • She Loves Her Pups

    We've seen plenty of pictures of Kate walking her beloved dog Lupo, and it seems that she passed her love for dogs on to Charlotte. If the way Charlotte is looking at her toy dog in this photo is any indication of how much she adores her family's dog, Lupo is one lucky pup.

    If we know anything about Kate Middleton, we know that she loves to have a laugh. It's clear that Charlotte inherited this incredibly endearing quality. Just look at her having the time of her life at the Trooping the Colour ceremony with her family.

  • She Puts Family First

    Even though Kate has a budding career as an advocate and philanthropist, she prioritizes time with her family. Charlotte similarly makes time away from her budding career as the cutest toddler in the UK for her royal fam.
