Another wrote: “Charlotte resembles Princess Diana in this picture. It’s the first time I’ve seen a resemblance.”

Earlier this week, a royal expert claimed William’s birthday will be “tinged with sadness” because Diana won’t be there to celebrate with him.

Expert Katie Nicholl told OK! Magazine: “William misses his mother. It must be emotional for him that she’s not here to share this.

“She’s still a significant part of his life so inevitably, on his birthday, his thoughts will be with her.”

Meanwhile, William is also facing spending Father’s Day away from his dad, Prince Charles, because of lockdown.
