Princess Charlotte is fond of horse riding just like her great-grandmother, Queen Elizabeth II.

Prince William and Kate Middleton's only daughter is following the footsteps of the Queen. She doesn't only look similar to the monarch, but the 3-year-old royal also shares the Queen's passion for horse riding.

According to equestrian Natasha Baker, Princess Charlotte has already started training in the sport. She learned this from the Duchess of Cambridge. "I asked her how the children were, and she said Charlotte is really enjoying her riding which is great to hear," Natasha said (via Marie Claire). "And I said we may see her here on a line-up in 20 years time."

"She emphasised that Charlotte has this passion for horses and although she doesn't echo it, she’ll do her best to champion and encourage it," Baker said about Middleton's reaction.

Earlier this year, Middleton released Princess Charlotte's first day of school portrait and many pointed out the little royal's resemblance to Her Majesty. According to them, the two have the same striking eye structure, blue eyes, arched eyebrows and hair color.

Queen Elizabeth II and Princess Charlotte also share the same favorite color - pink. They are also fond of wearing cardigans.

In related news, Prince William revealed earlier that his children are bookwork. According to the Duke of Cambridge, Prince George and Princess Charlotte love to read books.

"He asked me whether I'd always been interested in history as a child and so I said: 'Yes, I used to write history as a child, so look out,' meaning your own children. And he said his own children are always reading books. He was very sweet and charming as a father," Lady Antonia said of Prince William.

Meanwhile, Princess Diana's former bodyguard, Ken Wharfe, blamed the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge for the paparazzi shots involving their children in 2015. According to him, they should not have allowed Prince George and Princess Charlotte to be in public.

"My argument, having worked in similar circumstances, is if you don't want that intrusion, if you don't want that negative publicity, why do you need to take a baby that doesn't know where she is to a park in South London that's open to the public?" Wharfe explained. "They are in such a privileged position that that baby could have walked round the gardens at Buckingham Palace, Windsor castle, anywhere else in the world, without that intrusion."
