The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are sure to have their hands full as their little girl grows up. Kate Middleton and Prince William's adorable daughter, Princess Charlotte, already appears to have a huge personality. Her facial expressions alone make us want her to have her own reality show. Big brother Prince George has been a character since day one, and Prince Louis recently made this sweet princess a middle child. Maybe she's been destined for it since she first arrived? This feisty little miss is proving to be wonderfully expressive -- whether she's pleased or peeved, one will know in an instant. They say middle children are more mischievous -- and Charlotte is no exception. Although George is, of course, a wonderful and sweet little guy and baby Louis is just precious, Charlotte takes the cake as a total character.

This little royal has yet to learn the stoicism that is the trademark of her rest of her family, and instead prefers giggles and frustrated faces when she doesn't like something. And who can blame her! She's so tiny and cute, she could get away with just about anything. (Though Will and Kate may beg to differ!) We love seeing this little one cause a little bit of mayhem at family gatherings and photo ops. Check out these photos of the little princess as she lets her feelings be known -- and boy does she! As the saying goes: Toddlers be toddlers!

  • Pointing to the Crowd

    Although we don't know what Charlotte is thinking, it sure looks as if the tiny princess is channeling what her entire family probably wants to say when they're virtually forced to face eager and plentiful cameras wherever they go: "Fire up my private jet! I'm outta here!"

  • Waving From the Palace

    Princess Charlotte looks ready to upstage her look-alike great-grandmother Queen Elizabeth II, with an already perfect "Windsor wave." We kinda wish that she could grow up to rule her own fiefdom. She seems destined for greatness. 

  • Sweet Big Sister


    We love how sweet Charlotte is with her brand new baby brother! Prince Louis joined the family in April 2018, officially making Princess Charlotte a big sister and a middle child. It's a role that the sassiest royal looks ready to take on.

  • Not Her Favorites

    Oh, no! Look at that frown! What seems like a perfectly lovely bouquet of flowers to us is less than pleasing to the princess. We can't blame her. After all, we don't see the baby pink chrysanthemum that was named for her in the mix. Off with their heads!

  • Pop!

    Taking her first steps in public, Charlotte found support from this balloon display, or at the very least, a safe landing spot. Something tells us that even if these balloons popped, the princess would take it in her stride. She's one cool kid. 

  • Stealing the Show

    When Prince William took George and Charlotte to meet their new baby brother just hours after he was born, we almost completely forgot about Louis when she turned around and offered this sweet wave to the crowds gathered outside the hospital. If she weren't royal, our bet is that she'd grow up to be a movie star.

  • Oy With the Cardigans, Already!

    While attending a children's party in Canada, Charlotte made it clear that she'd had enough of wearing this navy blue cardigan. We totally understand. The Cambridges dress their daughter in traditional children's clothes that seem straight out of a 1940s catalog, following royal tradition, and we're sure Charlotte would rather be in cute Target leggings and T-shirt at least sometimes.  

  • Those Aren't Chicken Fingers

    Not one to stand on ceremony, Princess Charlotte decided to have a nibble on her own finger while taking in the view. Hey, we can't be a perfectly poised royal all the time, especially as a toddler. Get it all in before there's pressure to be picture-perfect later on, Char! 

  • I Could Push These Blocks All Day!


    Princess Charlotte is up and walking and taking charge! This little chick has amazing drive and will. That will serve her well later, when big bro Prince George steps into his role as heir to the British throne and she must carve out a role for herself, which we have exactly zero doubt she will nail. Watch out, world, here she comes!

  • That's Not What I Asked For

    "That's lovely, but I asked for a corgi puppy like great-grandma's, not yet another flower," Princess Charlotte might be thinking, which explains why the little royal won't make any eye contact with this poor balloon man. We're betting that Charlotte got a do-over. 

  • Watch Mom Try To Keep a Straight Face

    "With my fingers up my nose and Georgie wishing he were anywhere but here, it'll be awfully hard for Mum to keep that regal countenance!" Charlotte is having a laugh while Kate tries to keep it together. Something tells us that Charlotte inherited Princess Diana's (and Harry's) famous sense of humor and penchant for pranks.

  • What's All the Fuss About?

    On the way to her own christening at the church of St. Mary Magdalene on the Sandringham Estate, it looks as if newborn Charlotte is thinking, "Just take me back to my splashy nursery. It's time for my midmorning nap!" Can we join in?

  • That Wave Again

    It may have been Meghan and Harry's big day, but as flower girl to their wedding, Princess Charlotte grabbed plenty of shine in her gleaming white dress and flower headband. This little girl sure knows how to command a crowd.
