HRH The Duchess of Cambridge

Stop what you're doing, there are pictures of royal babies to behold!

Princess Charlotte of Cambridge, beloved daughter of Prince Williamand Kate Middleton, turns 1 on May 2. And though she may not know it, she became one of the most talked about people in the world upon arrival.

But while she has certainly accomplished much in the cuteness department, the people are talking because of her famous family. So let's take a look at where the royal baby came from—and see who she resembles the most!

Presenting, all the royals when they were only 1:

Queen Elizabeth II: Now the 90-year-old monarch may be the ruler of 16 countries and Head of the Commonwealth, but once upon a time she was only 1. Doesn't Charlotte bear a striking resemblance to her great-grandmother, circa 1927? And has the Queen ever looked more squeezable?!

Princess Diana Charlotte's late grandmother always knew how to captivate a crowd. At 1, she already appeared to be practicing her royal wave.

Prince Harry The most eligible bachelor in the world rocked overalls in one of his earliest portraits just like nephew Prince George would 30 years later. Already nearing full ginger status at 1, Harry still totally resembled dad Prince Charles (who was a blondie back in the day).

Prince William: Charlotte looks so much like her dad with their big, bright blue eyes!

Kate Middleton, 1985

Kate Middleton Honorable mention, but we couldn't not show you the duchess at 3, already showing signs of being an active outdoorswoman. These days, Charlotte's mom loves watching sports and still enjoys the occasional swing of a field hockey stick or cricket bat.

Prince George: Any wonder those overalls worn by Charlotte's older brother for a jaunt around the yard on the occasion of his first birthday sold out immediately? Kate and William proved in one swoop that their firstborn son was right on target with his development and that he was only getting cuter by the day. (Fast-forward to George in his monogrammed bathrobe: Case closed.)

Mia Tindall: Long before she held Great-Grandma's purse, she was practicing her grip in the great outdoors. Next stop, holding the reins of a horse like her accomplished equestrienne mum Zara Phillips.

Savannah Phillips: Such a sweetheart! Mia Tindall's cousin and fellow granddaughter of Princess Anne wisely let mom Autumn Kelly put a hat on her to keep the sun out of her face while frolicking in the countryside.

Isla Phillips: Savannah's little sis was just too cute in her little red rain boots. And how much does she resemble the Queen as a toddler?!
