I find it curious that so many people are seeing Carol in Charlotte's features rather than Catherine. The moment I saw the pic I thought she closely resembled her mother Catherine.

Soon as I saw the pic I thought Carole.

My mother thinks she is the spit of William and I see more Catherine with some of the Queen and William mixed in.

This is the nature of baby photos though, everyone sees someone different.

Of course it all depends on the pose too. In one photo, Charlotte may smile and the smile reaches her eyes just like the Queen's. In another she may crinkle her eyes and look like Harry and Charles do when they do that same action. Another shot she may look up at the camera and we're reminded of William and Diana. We have to remember too that the comparisons that we're making mostly are comparisons to photos of who she might take after.

The gene pool is like a vegetable soup. All kinds of good stuffs in there and sometimes one comes up with more peas than carrots and other times we go fishing for our favorite vegetable.

Dark hair, blue eyes and a creamy white skin. She's a beautiful girl.

Princess Charlotte is beautiful and looks like her mom, I would love to see the siblings together because they look like each parent

Carole has blue eyes.

3 of the 4 grandparents have blue eyes (Charles, Diana,and Carole), that why the Cambridge children have a 50% chance of having blue eyes themselves. It's a coin flip as we've seen with George and Charlotte.

IMO Charlotte's blue eyes make perfect sense to me. One of her parents has blue eyes (William). It's George who surprises me, as neither William nor Kate has brown eyes... Kate does have a hazel shade but her eyes are mostly green... LOL, I will never understand genetics.

If I were to dole out percentages for what I see in Charlotte:
70% Carole
10% Catherine
10% HM
10% QEQM

On the other hand, I would give George :
65% Mike
25% William
10% Catherine

Catherine keeps sneaking in with 10%. Jack of all babies, doppelgänger of none.
Yep I agree

Folks, the child's looks is a combo of her mother and father. Her appearance will change as she get older.

^ What colour are Mike Middleton's eyes? For years I thought they were a very dark blue but are they an equally dark brown?

Even geneticists don't understand hazel eyes. They have a bunch of different theories but none are close to being proven.

Personally, I would call Catherine's eyes green instead of hazel. It is possible for a green-eyed parent and a blue-eyed parent to have a brown-eyed child. Ten years ago, geneticists would have nixed the idea. But more recent research shows that eye color is determined by a lot more factors (and more chromosomes!), than their previous simplistic Mendelian model.

Another example in the BRF of eye oddity is the Yorks. Andrew and Sarah both have blue eyes, but Beatrice has heterochromia. Her right eye is blue and her left eye is green/hazel.

With all this talk of who PC looks like, well she looks like Princess Charlotte to me and maybe a bit of the QM. One very gorgeous bundle of joy for her parents and brother and most surly her grandfather PC who so wanted a girl.

miss whirley, whatever criteria your brain uses to determine these things, mine does it the same way. At first I thought I saw a hint of William around Charlotte's eyes, but then I saw that pic of Carole beside hers and I nixed that idea in favour of Carole's influence. Now I've had another look at pics of William as a baby, I see nothing at all of William in the photos we've so far seen of Charlotte.

The new photos of Charlotte are adorable! She's such a beautiful baby and she appears to be happy too. I see more of Catherine in her than William, but I can't tell which other members of the BRF and Middleton family she resembles. I also think she looks a lot like her older brother, George.

I think it's her complexion that reminds me of HM. The Queen always had lovely skin.

I agree -PC has been waiting 30+ years for a little Princess. W/ his fondness for gifting the females in his life with jewelry I'm excited for what we'll see adorning Charlotte in the future.
She does have a very engaging smile. Hopefully some magazine will run an article w/ age 6 mo. pix of the grandparents/parents so I can see these resemblances everyone else sees. All I see is that her face seems a bit less round than her brother's and that she has blue eyes and he brown.

I love that the photographs were not released until after The Fail's much lauded Kate's Cutie's calendar had gone to press.

It's adorable that both siblings have diferent "colors": George with blonde hair and dark eyes, and Charlotte with dark hair and blue eyes.
