  • In the latest Cambridge family Christmas card photo, Princess Charlotte (opens in new tab) is wearing a particularly stylish little outfit—a pair of dark wash jeans paired with a cozy sweater and adorable, knee-high brown leather boots.
  • Eagle-eyed royal fans were quick to spot how familiar Charlotte's boots were. They're actually a miniature copy cat version of Kate Middleton's favorite long tassel boots from Penelope Chilvers (opens in new tab).
  • The designer actually made the boots especially for Charlotte and will offer them in children's sizes for the general public soon (they're available for pre-order now).

Princess Charlotte (opens in new tab) has been Kate Middleton's (opens in new tab) mini-me since, well, pretty much the day she was born. Now, however, Charlotte has started copying her mom's famously amazing styl (opens in new tab)e, too.

In the Cambridge family's 2020 Christmas card picture, Charlotte is wearing (opens in new tab) a quintessential fall/winter look—dark wash jeans, a cozy sweater, and knee-high brown leather boots. Eagle-eyed royal fans noticed that Charlotte's boots, in particular, looked familiar. That's because they're exact, mini-sized replicas of one of Kate's favorite pairs of shoes, her Penelope Chilvers (opens in new tab) Long Tassel boots.

In case you haven't seen the Cambridge family's Christmas card (opens in new tab) (and Charlotte's adorable boots) yet, take a look below:

Charlotte's pair of the boots cost $375 boots and were made especially for the princess by Penelope Chilvers.

The designer actually posted on Instagram about Charlotte's stylish shoes, which will apparently be available for non-royal kids to buy soon, too. "Her mother, HRH Catherine has been wearing the #LongTasselBoots for so many years, it is so sweet that Princess Charlotte now has a mini-me style!” the Penelope Chilvers account wrote. "We look forward to offering these boots to little boys and girls from sizes 26 - 34 Eur. and we are taking orders for them online now."
