InStyle's editorial guidelines Published on February 9, 2021 @ 10:01AM Pin Share Tweet Email Princess Charlotte has clearly learned a lot from her mother, Duchess of Cambridge Kate Middleton. For instance: how to pair tall brown boots with jeans. The 5-year-old royal has evidently taken on some of mom's mannerisms as well. TikTok's @royalfancamps noticed a parallel between the duchess and little princess's behavior during the former's tweed-clad Zoom meeting earlier this month. At one point in the virtual engagement, Middleton grasped for her low ponytail, twirling it gently and pushing it back into place. Charlotte made a similar gesture with her ponytail on her first day of school at Thomas's Battersea in fall 2019. Princess Charlotte Channeled Her Mom Kate Middleton in a Pair of Mini-Me Boots So, OK, judging by the timeline of this evidence alone, it's possible that Kate actually learned this habit from her daughter. In that case, Charlotte is more of a kindergarten trendsetter than we previously imagined. The unicorn keychain should've tipped us off, really. Anyone who can get a member of the British royal family to willingly go spider hunting is an icon in our books.
