Princess Diana's Niece Is All Grown—and She's Basically Her Twin

It's crazy how much they look alike.

We haven't heard much about Lady Kitty Spencer, the eldest daughter of Charles Spencer and adorable little niece to Princess Diana. Which is a bummer because, come on, look at how cute she was back in 2000 at just 10 years old (three years after Princess Diana passed):

And now that 15 years have flown by, Kitty has grown up away from the media spotlight (with her mother, Victoria Lockwood) and given us a case of where-has-the-time-gone whiplash. Check her out now, where she was most recently spotted at Milan Fashion Week.

She's got the most gorgeous head of blonde hair, and we've gotta admit—her good looks remind us quite a bit of Princess Diana at her age. Just look at the two, both at age 24:

The cheekbones, the dimples, the smile—even the nose! It's pretty uncanny, right?

And while we were sat here wondering whether Kate was or wasn't pregnant again, Kitty was happily posting away on Instagram (opens in new tab) with the likes of Nikki Minaj and the Downton Abbey cast (a show the Queen just so happens to love), and being named the most eligible girl in Britain by Tatler magazine, according to Daily Mail (opens in new tab):

If nothing else, these pictures (opens in new tab) alone prove one thing's for sure: Good genes certainly run in the royal family.
